Without question one of the biggest if not the biggest stories of the Spring has been the utter futility of Albert Pujols since donning the halo.
Homerless and batting below the Mendoza line (say it ain't so, Alberto), Pujols has hit rock bottom.
The Inky reported Albert was benched for yesterday's game. ESPN noted he'd been given the day off.
One man's benching is another man's respite.
