Joe Posnanski - Capital T Rhymes With P Stands For Pujols (http://joeposnanski.blogspot.com/2012/05/capital-t-rhymes-with-p-stands-for.html)

Small part of the piece about Albert's swing:

Pujols swing looks nothing like it did. The wide stance has narrowed significantly. His legs used to be tree trunks; a hurricane could not move this guy. Not anymore. He looks wobbly at the plate. His swing used to be the most balanced thing of beauty imaginable -- everything stayed perfectly still as the bat would rush through the zone with fury -- now he’s lunging at the ball, stepping at the ball, his head seems to be moving all over the place.

I don’t have the technological understanding of hitting to explain the differences, but even someone like me can see, in caveman talk, “That swing different from that swing.” I’ve had people explain to me Tiger Woods’ swing changes a hundred times, and sometimes I think I might see the difference -- sort of like how sometimes I think I might see the pirate ship in the Magic Eye picture -- but generally I don’t see it. But with Pujols you can’t miss it. The swing is completely different -- so much so that it feels virtually unrecognizable to me. If i saw the shadow of Albert Pujols’ new swing, I would not know it was Pujols.

That was a much needed victory considering the struggles of late. And to take a game against the Cubs in walk-off fashion made it extra sweet.

So he was victimized by a prank that was done in Revenge Of The Nerds? I'm not saying somebody pranked him, just that the whole scenario is similar. Maybe Takashi and Booger are Padre fans...

In other news, the Angels fired hitting coach Mickey Hatcher today. Not really a shock considering what the offense has done the last couple of years.

Give Albert a break, he is just home-sick because his family still lives in St. Louis.

Nothing like a 2-game sweep by KC to shut down all those comparisons to the '98 Yankees.

Rangers gave up 7 unearned runs in the two games. It's been some downright sloppy baseball being played recently.

Give the mang a break...he was 3 for 4 last night with 3 RBIs. 3 singles. All of which could easily have been outs. But still, 3 for 4. ;)

Honestly, I'm surprised Hatcher hung on to his job as long as he did. Not that I'm trying to put the blame on him for all the offensive woes the Angels have, but at some point the hammer has to fall. If it were just Pujols, or just this season, that's one thing, but this kind of team wide slump has happened many times during the Scioscia/Hatcher tenure.

Trust me, the fire Hatcher mantra was repeated many times during his near 13 year stint, more with him than any other coach on the team (including Scioscia).

And while you certainly can't put this on the new hitting coach, The Angels scored 7 runs and Pujols hit a 3-run shot in the first game post-Hatcher. Sometimes a change needs to be made just to wake people up.

I remember when Rod Carew was fired as the hitting coach, and how tough that was since he had been there for the upbringing of Salmon, Anderson, Edmonds, etc. But the team fell apart in '99 and he took the first bullet for it. Didn't help any, and it just started the bloodbath that ended with the entire staff and the GM taken down as well. That of course is when Scioscia was brought in, so this is the first time a coach has actually been fired since 1999. That's a pretty impressive run.
