The March 7th, 2014 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Pujols upset over comparison to Trout, Burnett might open season on DL and much more...
The Monkey Says: That happened weeks ago and he is still pissed off about enough to tell another reporter about it. Suffice it to say, Pujols has a bit of a chip on his shoulder. That could be a motivator, but it could also make him a malcontent over the fact that Trout is getting all the attention. This does nothing to dispel rumors that Pujols helped pushed Torii Hunter out of the door because Albert was jealous of his leadership role in the clubhouse.
The Monkey Says: This is supposedly just caution and not a setback, but I'm not totally sure I buy that explanation. Even if they are just trying to treat him with kid gloves, it seems unlikely that he will start the season on the disabled list. Brian Moran is delighted to hear this news.
