Modest article about the man, the myth, the legend, Albert Pujols. The early adulation of Pujols' character never did sing true to me, and that hunch has been born out over the previous couple of years. Indeed, to hear the man described now, the difference between Pujols and Barry Bonds personality's is one of degree and not type.
Not that I care all that much. Ted Williams was a jerk too, but if he's hitting home runs then hey, whatcha gonna do? I'm most intrigued by Poz's declaration that Pujols is "surprisingly eager to believe the worst about people". Can't help but wonder where that comes from. There must be a worthwhile anecdote behind that conclusion.
