WASHINGTON -- Albert Pujols was so wired -- and so busy talking and texting friends around baseball -- after hitting his 500th career home run Tuesday night that the Angels slugger didn't get to sleep until about 4 a.m. and managed only three or four hours of sleep, at best. “Trust me, I was trying to sleep,” Pujols said before Wednesday night's series finale against the Washington Nationals. “I knew we had a game today. I'm a bad sleeper no matter what. So, it's not that I need an excuse.

A true 'slugger' Pujols has led the National League in slugging percentage three times, and his career mark places him in heady company on Major League Baseball's all-time list: Rk.; Name; Years; Hits; 2B; 3B; HR; Slugging % 1.; Babe Ruth; 22; 2,873; 506; 136; 714; .690 2.; Ted Williams; 19; 2,654; 525; 71; 521; .634 3.; Lou Gehrig; 17; 2,721; 534; 163; 493; .632 4.; Albert Pujols; 11; 2,073; 455; 15; 445; .617...

DETROIT - Mark McGwire was in the twilight of his career in 2001, willing his broken-down body through one final season with the St. Louis Cardinals, when a strapping young buck named Albert Pujols, just two years removed from being the 402nd overall pick in the draft, started tearing it up in spring training. Bobby Bonilla was slated to be the Cardinals' left fielder, but when Bonilla was hurt that spring, McGwire practically commandeered the lineup card from Manager Tony La Russa.

BASEBALL LEGEND : Hank Greenberg did not get picked for the All-Star Game despite having a record number of runs batted in at the All Star break and his own manager was picking the team! Hank Greenberg was one of the most dominant hitters in Major League history. Think Albert Pujols or Frank Thomas in their first nine seasons. That's how good Greenberg was (and, like Pujols and Thomas, he was a first baseman). Although he had a relatively short career, he still put up big-time numbers and was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1956.
