Albert Pujols and the Cardinals are in tears

The Cardinals lost to the Cubs last night. Still one of the hottest teams in baseball.

St. Louis is 21–9 since the All-Star break, including 17–5 this month. On August 2nd, the Cards trailed the Brewers by two games at NL Central. Now they have him leading by 5.5 games. So how are they doing it? It’s easy: They are hitting and pitching much better than they have all season.
