What Does Albert Pujols Mean for the Los Angeles Angels?
With Albert Pujols currently hitting .600, Pujols is bound to improve the Angels’ offense this coming season. When Pujols left the Cardinals last season, they finished No. 1 scoring in the league.
In their Cactus League game against the Oakland Athletics on Monday, March 5, the Angels outplayed the A’s—ending in a 9-1 victory. And Pujols’ performance in the game? He hit a run-scoring double in the first inning (his first time up to bat for the Angels) and a single in the second inning.
Pujols has pumped up Angels fans and helped cause a huge increase in demand for tickets—1,000 fans lined up for eight hours to get tickets during the Angels’ voucher redemption program, which is an increase from last year’s 75 people.
Pujols’ 10-year, $240 million deal seems as though it will play out well for the Angels this 2012 season—especially alongside the acquisition of CJ Wilson. Opening Day for the MLB is April 4, and the Angels’ Opening Game is scheduled for Friday, April 6, against Kansas City Royals at Angel Stadium.
