Pujols hasn't been carrying this team all season.
So him going down for a few weeks isn't good, but it won't cripple the team by any means.
They should be ok until he returns.
Ludwick is hitting better than Pujols anyway...he's tearing it up (6th in the NL in AVG, 4th in RBI, 6th in HR, 6th in 2B).
pujols' BA is like 20 points higher and they have the same home run total.
do you mean lately?
Same home run total, but Ludwick has 10 more RBI's.
As far as I'm concerned, driving in runs is the most important stat for a batter.
I'm not putting down Pujols, as you could make a case for either having a better season. My point was that we have (had)two huge threats in the lineup right now...so it's not like losing Pujols leaves us without any big threats. Ludwick has been just as valuable this season so far.
Glaus has hit much, much better over the last month as well...so that helps quite a bit.
