Albert Pujols: Set to Return to the Cardinals in 2023?

As we are in last 3 of weeks of the MLB season, a thought occurred to me. Albert Pujols is reborn. He has gone back in time and recreated himself into the masher that he was once upon a time earlier in his Cardinals career.

Are we really sure that he will call it quits at the end of the season? Regardless of how far the St. Louis Cardinals advance in the 2022 MLB playoffs (they are legitimate World Series contenders), Pujols must be rethinking his plan to retire this year.

At the start of the year, reaching 700 home runs was but a pipe dream for Albert. But it is almost in his grasp. At 697, he will surely hit at least 3 more home runs this year (barring a slump or injury). And this is not a case of Albert Pujols being a one-dimensional player at the tail end of his career. He has been an overall very consistent hitter, especially in the 2nd half of the year. By discovering the fountain of youth, Pujols has to be asking himself if he has at least one more year in him.

The St. Louis Cardinals will certainly want him back in 2023. St. louis fans, as well as all MLB fans want to see him return. The money will be available. So the questions will be: Does Albert Pujols still have more in the tank after this year? Does he really want it? Or is he done no matter what in his mind?

The Vegas money- the smart money, is that Albert Pujols will be retiring on top of his game this year. One of only a handful of players that finished off their careers with such strong rebound numbers. Cooperstown is waiting for Albert Pujols whenever he is ready to hang up his cleats. If this is indeed his swansong, do yourself a favor. Make sure to catch as many St. Louis Cardinals games as you can as the MLB season wraps up. To watch Albert hit the magical 700th home run of his incredible career. For all of his big moments, including those of his Cardinals’ teammates. And just for fun, go back and watch that monster home run he hit against Brad Lidge many moons ago. That will always be in my mind the greatest Albert Pujols baseball moment ever.

MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 4/26/21

By MLB Reports

DraftKings has an awesome new game option called “Tiers”, It lets you select all your players without any salary cap per position all.  Instead, you pick one batter from 6 different boxes to choose from – in which 4 – 9 players appear per tier.  This is a great new contest selection for those who hate having to value shop 2 pitchers and all positions from 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, C and 3 OF positions.

Here is the strategy we are using for gameplay every niight.  The reason why we wheel all of our players with the other players in our lists is to maximize our chance to win a GPP.

We pick two players on every single ticket and then wheel the other four tiers with 2 players we like each.  We designate one player we like the best as the home team and the 2nd seed goes as the visitor.

We play all the contests that have 20 roster limits.  Obviously we don’t go crazy because we are playing so many different combinations.  If we go for $2  – 5 value each per roster,  we will play $32 – $80 a night.

Here are the contests we like playing.  All of them are MLB Tiers

Dimetime contest.  20 rosters x $0.10 = ($2.00) – we will enter 2 – 3 tournaments

Quarter Jukebox. 20 Rosters x $0.25 = ($5.00)

MLB Solo Shot.  20 Rosters x $1.00 = ($20.00)

MLB Tablesetter.  4 rosters x $2.00 ($8.00)

MLB Four Seamer 2 rosters x 4.00 ($8.00)

MLB Tiers Booster 10 TOP 3 win $20.  3 Rosters x $2.00 ($6.00)

You can determine how much you want to bet.  I start off on the lower end each time after a big win.

If you were to take Trout and Acuna on all tickets here is how you wheel 16 rosters.

say tiers 3 you pick Story as your 1 seed (H) and McMahon as your 2 seed (V), Tiers 4 you pick Hoskins as your 1 seed (H) and Tatis Jr. and your 2 seed (V).  Tier 5 has Adam Eaton as the 1 seed (H) and Travis d’Arnaud as the 2 seed (V), with the 6th tier being Yoan Moncada as the 1 seed and Ozzie Albies as the 2 seed (V)
