As a Cubs fan it’s easy to dislike Albert Pujols, but you have to respect the guy, even as a rival Cardinal.Take a look at Pujols’ 162-game averages for his career and tell me there’s not a better player in the game:.334/.427/.628 with 42 home runs, 129 RBIs, 94 walks, 124 runs scored, a 1.055 OPS and 374 total bases. That from a guy who was taken in the 13th round of the 1999 draft…and just another reason I love the game of baseball.Ted Keith of Sports Illustrated wrote a terrific article on Albert Pujols’ third MVP Award. He sums up Pujols best with this line… Looking for flaws in his individual seasons is like looking for a stray brushstroke on a masterpiece.
Bonds will never touch.Of course I’d love Albert more if he played outside the NL Central, but then again, we’re lucky to watch him perform against the Cubs 18 times a year.Listen, I’m not telling you to love or hate the guy, but understand this may be the greatest talent we’ll ever see play in our lifetime.

The Golden State Warriors began their trip to Texas Tuesday night with a 111-103 come-from-behind win over Dallas breaking the Mavericks five game win streak in the process.With only six players, Golden State outscored Dallas 33-21 in the fourth quarter as Keith Smart assumed coaching duties for the pneumonia ridden Don Nelson.The game in Big D shows Nelson's time has come and gone. Put Smart in charge and watch the team respond, especially as they get healthy.Nelson should be a Hall of Famer one day, but what he accomplished in the past doesn’t translate to success now.With Smart in charge and Nelson gone, Monta Ellis might actually want to stick around. If not, he’ll be hawked for expiring contracts which sounds good heading into the summer when so many big name players will be free agents, but how many of them want to come and play for NellieManagement did the right thing in trading Stephen Jackson, but it’s only the first of two moves that must be made.There are very few Warriors supporters who believe Nelson is the future of this franchise.
