When Albert Pujols was sent into a heap on Sunday, it didn't look very good. He was in an incredible amount of pain, and it was fairly obvious to see that the prognosis wasn't good. Well the MRI results are in, and Pujols reportedly has a fracture in his wrist, and will miss between four and six weeks of action.

This obviously leaves a big hole in the Cardinals offense and at first base for a little while. Their offense had been dynamic this year, with Pujols, Matt Holliday and Lance Berkman. The remaining two might be able to carry the offense while Pujols is out of comission, but they won't be able to get it done completely by themselves. The Cardinals will need some other players to step up, while their biggest bat let's his wrist heal.
