Albert Pujols seems to have skipped hot and cold streaks since June—he just moves from high gear to low gear on a game-to-game basis. Last night marked the first game in four that Albert Pujols's batting average did not jump above or below .300. His 3-3 night brought it up to .309, the highest it's been since the Cardinals' disastrous swing west.
June 12 was the latest in a season Pujols's batting average has been below .300 since 2007, when it was .298 as late as June 27. In 2009 he didn't spend a single day below what I would prefer be called the Pujols Line.
