Albert Pujols threatened legal action after former Cardinals slugger Jack Clark accused the Angels star of using performance-enhancing drugs on his radio show this week and now Clark reportedly is out of a job.

The company that put Clark and co-host Kevin Slaten on the air announced it has cut ties with them the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Saturday morning. The move came hours after Pujols went on the offensive vowing to make Clark and his employers pay.

“I’ve said time and time again that I would never take or even consider taking anything illegal" Pujols said in a statement after Friday's game. "I’ve been tested hundreds of times throughout my career and never once have I tested positive. It is irresponsible and reckless for Jack Clark to have falsely accused me of using PEDs. My faith in Jesus Christ and my respect for this game are too important to me. I would never be able to look my wife or kids in the eye if I had done what this man is accusing me of.

“I know people are tired of athletes saying they are innocent asking for the public to believe in them only to have their sins exposed later down the road. But I am not one of those athletes and I will not stand to have my name and my family’s name dragged through the mud.

“I am currently in the process of taking legal action against Jack Clark and his employers at WGNU 920AM. I am going to send a message that you cannot act in a reckless manner like they have and get away with it. If I have to be the athlete to carry the torch and pave the way for other innocent players to see that you can do something about it I am proud to be that person. I have five young children and I take being a role model very seriously. The last thing I want is for the fans and especially the kids out there to question my reputation and character.”

Clark was in his first week as co-host of an afternoon talk radio show on WGNU in St. Louis where Pujols played for the Cardinals through their 2011 World Series championship season.

InsideSTL Enterprises which provides programming to WGNU said Clark and Slaten are independent contractors and would not return the Post-Dispatch reported.

Clark said that while he was the hitting coach of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the early 2000s he was told by Chris Mihlfeld who was a conditioning coach with the Dodgers that Mihlfeld “shot (Pujols) up.”

Mihfeld denied that he told Clark that Pujols took PEDs according to a report by ESPN. Mihlfeld was the baseball coach at the Kansas City junior college Pujols attended in 1998 and is a former personal trainer for Pujols according to the Post-Dispatch.
