Albert Pujols Can't Bring Self To Hit Against Ex-Teammate Jeff Suppan

ST. LOUIS— Saying that he was "too overwhelmed" with memories of their 2006 World Series run, Albert Pujols couldn't bring himself to do well against former teammate Jeff Suppan during the Cardinals–Brewers game last Saturday. "Seeing his face really choked me up, man," said Pujols following an 0-for-4 performance, which consisted of letting 12 strikes go past him without taking a single swing.

Despite Pujols' obvious emotional connection to Suppan, the right-handed pitcher said he doesn't remember Pujols saying one word to him last season.
