    Let the Panic Begin: Albert Pujols to Have Elbow Surgery

    Well, we all knew it was coming eventually. Just a matter of time, really. Of course, knowing it was inevitable that Albert Pujols' balky elbow would eventually necessitate a surgical fix doesn't make it any easier to swallow when said inevitability becomes a reality.

    Welcome to St. Louis, Manny

    Ramirez​I would be remiss if I didn't at least mention the reception of one Manfred Ramirez. (I wish his name really were Manfred. That would be awesome.)
