Pujols to go under the knife

Seems that his elbow will finally be zippered open, but not until after the season.

Slugger Albert Pujols told a local television station on Monday that he may be leaning toward undergoing Tommy John ligament-replacement surgery on his right elbow after the season ends. The procedure typically sidelines a hitter for approximately six months.

As a big Pujols fan, I hope he can make a quick recovery to consider playing come early next season. He's played all year with the partially torn ligament and has been typically majestic.
