The guy in the picture there is Dave Karaff, a 64-year-old grandfather who used to be a scout for the St. Louis Cardinals, until they fired him in 2003. And good thing, too: all that useless old fart did was sign Albert Pujols. Now he stocks shelves at a Wal-Mart in Arkansas.
And Pujols is still pissed at him. Even though Karaff thought Pujols was talented and got the Cards to draft him, Karaff apparently didn't give Prince Albert the requisite blowjob.
The slugger, for instance, told The Kansas City Star: "He said I wasn't going to make the big leagues. That's why he got fired."
He told USA Today: "How can you draft a guy and say you don't know if he's going to make the big leagues? All of a sudden, the next year (I'm) in the big leagues, and he wants to take all the credit."
So, even though Pujols is a famous multimillionaire and the most feared hitter in baseball, the guy that really pisses him off is the one that gave him his start, then lost his job and now works at a Wal-Mart. Makes sense.
Albert's going to spend his off-season lifting weights, working on his swing, and burning down this little bitch's house. That should teach him some respect.
