Albert Pujols divorcing his wife Deidre after 22 years

Former Angels slugger, Albert Pujols is apparently divorcing his wife. This is pretty shocking news for the couple who seemed so close and run a charity together. Pujols announced the news through his agent.

Perhaps even more shocking given his wife’s recent health battles.

In the end, only Albert and Deidre knows what is happening here but pretty shocking news and timing, nonetheless.

Not gonna presume to know what their relationship is like but maybe I’d wait to see what it’s like after she’s had a brain tumor removed just in case, you know, some tension is lifted?

Doesn’t prolonged steroid use cause…ahem….”shrinkage”? Maybe there’s “less” to the story than meets the eye.

I don’t know about St Louis’ divorce rules (Missouri) but in California she and the kids would get a bundle. Somehow this just fits him, the timing just makes no sense to us. Using ‘roids and lying about his age and taking us on a slow painful ride watching him decline, GIDP’s, makes me wanta have a signed autograph of this human douche.

I think I’ll insert things like “as a devout atheist” into my comments randomly for no reason, it’s just as relevant as his asinine religious insertions.

It isn’t random or for no reason. Followers of Christ’s teachings reject divorce except for in the case of adultery. So to hear that Albert—who is well known for his faith—is divorcing his wife of 22 years immediately raises questions with those who know what he professes to believe.

So he is worrying about getting a retirement tour when his wife has a tumor and he is divorcing her? If that we were me I would drop baseball immediately and work on my relationship with my wife and my family. Prayers up.

After dropping $60 on a few hot dogs and sodas, I think we are entitled to “we”. 😂😂

I really hope there is more to this story for Albert Pujols sake. The way it looks on social media is that he is divorcing his wife because she is sick.

Albert has made 99% of all the money he’s going to make. Any damage done to herself would be minimal.

Except for that elite 10 year $10 million personal services contract that Arte gave him that he starts after his retirement.

Probably gonna fight to the bitter end to keep all of that dough because you know how much he will love to promote The Angels for the next Decade.

Love the photo with Hambone here.

And by LOVE it could be construed that I mean HATE but do LOVE that it has been put here.

Last week when the St Luis deal was announced weren’t there a couple closer to home and family quotes…apparently it went way south really fast.

Well that sucks for them. I’m sure we know less than 1% of the story.

Hope they both are able to find happiness moving forward .

Your wife’s very recent surgery to remove a brain tumor, after a 22 year marriage and 5 children? Not a good optic. But what do I know about his personal life.

Some advice Al. Wait a few months next time. Better chance of not looking like a complete douche nozzle.

How do we know it was Albert’s choice? I’m not here to defend him, but it would not be the first time I have heard of a marriage falling apart after one person is suddenly home all the time after years of part time being home.

I’ll admit, he may have taken one for the team….but, he said in his statement I decided to file for my divorce from my wife, acknowledging its not the most opportune time. .

I’d say the divorce announcement within a day or two of telling the press you’re worried about your wife’s brain surgery is a thoroughly Gingrichian move.

Newt vs Pujols running from 2nd to home? Who wins?

Newt would take a pretty big lead, but stumble and fall on his adipose face rounding 3rd and immediately blame his fall on the liberal Great Society programs of the 1960s.

Definitely rivals Horseface . Of course that was only Breast cancer.

Never want to hear of personal problems with players. On field is on field, off field I wish them all well.

Is this worse timing than Perry’s DFA’ ing of J-Up ?

Quite possibly so.

Without question.

You could argue that PTP’s timing actually did J Up a solid by making it easier to get on with another team
