If only that headline were true.
How great would it be to be able to call the greatest player in baseball a former Traveler? If I have one grievance with the St. Louis Cardinals in their longtime role as parent club to the Travs, it is that Pujols bypassed his should-have-been-Double-A-home of Ray Winder Field, even if only for a month, on his way to St. Louis. I like to think Bobby Bonilla's injury is largely to blame for Walt Jocketty fast-tracking Pujols through the minors, but man it would have been nice to have him for at least a week.
It's nice to dream about it, but the fact remains Pujols was not a Traveler. Our only hope of seeing him now is if he ever gets injured and needs a rehab assignment, he will be coming to Dickey-Stephens Park with the Springfield Cardinals. And make no mistake Springfield will get him.
