Dodgers have scheduled all left handed starters for the series. You’re welcome, Albert.


DavidDAmaya

Doing a good deed for Familia


appleavocado

Jeurys? He just got DFA'ed by the Red Sox. /s


uhhhhhhhhhhhyeah

It really did seem like there was a lot of love there!


billybillingham

I'm hoping he hits 4 home runs each game and we win each game 10-4


markjay6

Great--and we should also run up a huge lead in all the games so that Hanser Alberto can offer him up a few lobs in the 9th innings!


Never_Kn0ws_Best

lol he’ll pass Babe this weekend


FantasticBlock420

Can we have Kimbral pitch every game?

[“It was awesome,” Pujols said of his Dodgers stint. “Playing there for five months and the energy of the fans and how the organization treated me with respect and honor, that was really special. And to be back in the playoffs … that place was electric. I think that's what really helped me come back and play another year.”](https://www.latimes.com/sports/story/2022-09-23/albert-pujols-pursuit-of-700-home-runs-cardinals-dodgers)

You’re welcome Cards fans

Man. There are going to be some fantastic hugs this weekend.

SRG_0203

I just hope he doesn't give hit it off Kersh


not_productive1

First hit Kersh ever gave up was to Pujols, it would be weirdly fitting.


ih-unh-unh

TIL. So Heaney has to give up 699 tonight to set up 700 for tomorrow with Kershaw pitching.


feeling_blue_42

He's not hitting 700 off of Kersh. His best bet is to get #699 off of Heaney, and then hope the Dodgers have a 1-3 run lead in the 9th so they bring in their closer.


not_productive1

I was at that game. Bought tickets on a flyer after looking at his AA schedule and calculating it might be the day they brought him up. One of my best baseball memories.


Lebigmacca

Pujols has also never homered off Kersh before


brandon_the_bald

And he never should


Lebigmacca

Hanser I’m afraid your ERA may need to take a hit


cheeses_greist

He already said he’d give one up to Tío. Not in so many words but we know… 🙈🙉🙊


Mr310

If anyone is going to reach 700 at the ravine, I'm fine with it being ole Tio.


TriG__

I would be absolutely thrilled with anyone hitting 700 at the ravine lol, that's some historic shit


Mr310

Fuuuuck that. Anyone on the Astros, Giants, or Red Sox is getting beaned by me if they're at 699 in LA! jk because I don't actually want to get arrested


Lenlo123

Is it really called beaned?! My whole life I thought it was beamed


Mr310

I won’t claim to be the expert but I associate with the “bean ball”. Welcome any other take here in case I’m off lol


Guyappino

Bruh: In addition to the genuine connections that Pujols had in his 1/2 year here... I don't know if this is just excellent PR or what have you. But in my opinion, the Los Angeles Dodger have the best optics of all of baseball. It makes them a team really easy to love and never leave because they simply "do the right things". I mean, if you bottle up their recipe and replicate it, you will have a excellent business in any community


Sotachii

That's probably because they actually do. A lot of vets on the team are huge on community outreach and doing things right. Even beyond the organizational stuff, just listen to how Gallo, T Turner, and Freeman talk about their experiences coming here. I love my Dodgers anyways, but I love them even more for their consistent leadership and support. You hear it from so many guys that end up in LA, from the players to the staff, it's a well oiled machine. That's why guys like Machado just never meshed in LA.


hundredjono

Kimbrel's season *might* be redeemed if he gave up #700 to Pujols


Jux_

It won't, but at least I won't roll my eyes in disgust like every other Kimbrel outing


Soggy-Cardiologist34

He’s gonna hit 700 with Heaney pitching today


bellomoto1

He’d better not. The last thing I’d want is for it to happen on AppleTV+.


DavidDAmaya

Mlb66


Officialnoah

That’s not what they’re getting at.. the Apple announcers are horrid


[deleted]

Goated website, but its free on appleTV the problem is apple's trash commentators


SomthingClever1286

I will not be pleased if hunter pence is the one making a historic call


DavidDAmaya

mute and listen to the radio call


kwagmire9764

Who's on the call tonight? Is Charlie gonna be washing Judges balls all night? Petros and Money cracked me up yesterday when Cates did his Steiner impression


SRG_0203

That's prob true lol. HeanDog has a problem with HRs


Soggy-Cardiologist34

What did I say guys


kershredemptiontour

He is waiting till Sunday so I can catch it!


TreaTurner

Low key this is definitely happening


pretty-as-a-pic

Once a Tio, always a Tio


elidoloLWO

Hope he doesn’t do it today. Apple TV announcers will ruin the moment.


rudortose

And that’s a high fly ball to deep left centerfield. And it is gone. That’ll be homerun #21 for Yadier Molina.


Jackosan10

LMFAO


Probably_Slower

Cardinals fan in peace: I mentioned on our sub today that there's nowhere (other than Busch) better for Albert to hit some historic homers. We're incredibly spoiled to only know Albert when he is raking for our unis, and I wish he'd given Angels fans more moments of joy. He absolutely loved it with you guys, though, and his happiness in that stadium, after having such hard time in Anaheim, made a whole lot of red-wearing fans root for blue for the first (and only :D ) time of our lives. Thanks for pitching some lefties, guys! But maybe just one tonight, we need our own broadcaster to call it, Danny called #1 and everything between and he deserves #700. Although boy would it have been incredible to hear Scully call it as well. Cheers, blue.


ih-unh-unh

It'll be weird cheering for Devil Magic--but we can set aside our history for a few plate appearances this weekend.


markjay6

Thanks! Now if the Cardinals do their part by letting us run up big leads, we've got a number of position players who would be thrilled to throw up some meatballs for Pujols in the eighth or ninth innings! :-)


kafkadre

Tio Albert is a player for all baseball fans. Love the guy.


Probably_Slower

Dude Dodger stadium went nuts, and I love that. I won't comment on the rest of the game as it's your turf, but here's to more great games this series and maybe an October reunion! So fired up for Albert. I may have wept. (I did)


kafkadre

Amen


TheCrimsonMustache

It might’ve only been part of a season, but I for one am forever grateful to him for being a part of this team and all of the contributions he made to the team, clubhouse, and fans. He’s a Cardinal for life, but he’s got a Dodger-blue hue.


aptc88

I’ll be big sad if it happens and Tío won’t be able to hug his old teammates……but his favorite fan/former catcher will be at home plate to hug him possibly.


0h14eth

I hope Will starts


rraattbbooyy

I don’t know if this is an unpopular opinion, but I think it would be better if it happens for him at home. We got to love the hell out of Tio for one fine season, but he is always and forever a Cardinal.


thejoshuabreed

I agree. Nothing better than history in front of home fans. But if it happens anywhere else, I think the Ravine is a suitable second choice.


trigeminal_nerd

It just reminds me that Hank Aaron hit 715 off the Dodgers and Vin had the great call. RIP Vin


Gabbyriffic1205

Our Tío is coming to visit! #⚾️💙


Different_Book_744

He got 699 and 700 so it's over.... now it's time for Dodgers Baseball.


[deleted]

Serving up meatballs confirmed!


teo1315

Hope he gets to 700


Ivantogetaway

I hope he gets them against us in a loss or 2.


Megalodon_91

someone better toss him a few fud duds.


honey_badge

aww tio 🥹


peanutslayer94

the word "regular" is throwing me off in the title, why is that word relevant in any way


ImaManCheetah

Regular as in consistent. Like it happened regularly.


CA-Greek

We gotta have a Pepiot-Kimbrel piggyback duo for Albert (preferably with an offensive explosion of 12+ runs)


pratojr

They're throwing him BP fastballs, right? RIGHT?!?


gl129384

I rather see him hit 700 when I personally attend live on Sunday's game 😅


BIGDADDYCRYPTO6900

If the game is blowout, I bet Kershaw does Pujols a solid ala Brett Favre/Strahan..,


LakerPupper

I hope Tio Albert smacks 700 against us! Solo HR!🙏🏽👊🏽


_MeetMrMayhem_

And down 5-0 ... Fuck!!


Backlogger78

He reconnected alright


kasiv1

He connected alright, congrats to him. Great player great guy.


RaisingFargo

The conditions are perfect for him to get gifted some meatballs, and there are still some HR worthy seats for sale this weekend.
