Over 42,000 fans were on hand to watch Albert Pujols become the 12th-quickest player to 2,000 hits, taking 1,650 games.  The crowd gave Pujols a long ovation following his milestone.  Pujols will be a free agent following the 2011 season.  There has been a lot of speculation about Pujols’ future with the St. Louis Cardinals.  The first baseman made a few interesting statements following the game.

“I think if they would have kept going, I think a couple of drops would have come out of my eyes,” Pujols said.  ”To be able to share this moment with them is incredible.  Hopefully, I can continue to do it the rest of my career.”

These comments by Pujols obviously don’t mean that he’s destined to remain a Cardinal.  It does, however, mean that Pujols has the desire to remain a member of the St. Louis Cardinals if the money is right and the contract is to his liking.  Otherwise, the team he recorded his 2,000th hit against, will be one of the possible destinations for Phat Albert.
