Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols has been arguably baseball's worst player this season. He entered Wednesday hitting .230/.274/.374 on the season. Yet those struggles haven't stopped him from achieving some milestones. To wit, Pujols homered twice during Wednesday's game against the Oakland Athletics (OAK-LAA GameTracker), giving him 612 long balls for his career. That number is significant, since it ties Pujols with Jim Thome for the seventh all-time.
