Say it ain’t so Albert. Throughout the years we’ve seen some players from the Dominican lie about their age, namely little league Danny Almonte, who said he was three years younger than he acutally was. Now we have reports suggesting MLB legend Albert Pujols has been lying about his age.

Via Sporting News:

“We knew when we did the calculations for that deal that we didn’t care about 2019, ’20 or ’21. It was so far in the future that it didn’t matter,” Samson said. “We knew he’d be unproductive, we knew that he was not the age that he said he was. We had all the information.”

Le Batard responded, “Did you just report flatly that Pujols is older than he’s always claimed to be?”

Samson said, “There is not one person in baseball, not one executive, who believes Albert Pujols is the age that he says he is. The amount of fraud that was going on in the Dominican back in the day, the changing of names, the changing of birthdays, it would blow your mind.”

Pujols’ reported age according to records is 41 years old.

If Samson is telling the truth, that means the Angels paid Pujols a bundle when he may already been way past his prime.

Father time remains undefeated, minus the one loss to Tom Brady.
