Albert Pujols on Steroids?

Bloggers get tarred, feather, beaten, demoralized, and spit upon when they write something without doing their due diligence — particularly in the case of PEDs suspicion. But somehow it’s OK for a professional journalist? See this must-read about an LA Times columnist who wonders if Albert Pujols is using something.

Another absolute “must-read” is this insightful article on TV camera angles and how they affect you, the viewer’s, perception of the strike zone. Loyal MetsToday readers know how much I love “modern” video production of baseball games.

NYSportsDog has some positive vibes and relays a report from Brian Moritz that prospect Jenry Mejia recently hit 102 MPH on the radar gun.

Our favorite source for graphs and charts, The ‘Ropolitans, asks Johan Santana “where have the strikeouts gone?”

And also hat tip to The ‘Ropolitans for finding a reason to acknowledge Michael Jackson’s death (the pop singer, not the former Georgetown point guard). Keep your eyes peeled, and you should see a Mets cap in this video:

Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.
