Angels Releasing Future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols


It appears that Albert Pujols' reign of terror on Houston Astros pitching is finally coming to an end as the Angels are releasing him.

In his career Pujols played more games against the Astros than any other opponent after the Astros chased him to his new division after getting just one year of rest from him destroying their pitching. In 298 career regular season games against the Astros, Pujols is a lifetime .279 hitter with 62 homers and 179 runs batted in. The 62 homers are the most he hit against any opponent. He really enjoyed playing at Minute Maid Park (no I will not post the Lidge homer, that was too much pain), playing in 150 career regular season games in Houston, Pujols hit .269 with 33 homers and 77 runs batted in.
