Albert Pujols is on vacation for the MLB playoffs, and there is one genius St. Louis Cardinals fan who will not let him forget it. 

Bringing a sign to a professional sporting event is usually complete lame sauce, but we like the cut of this guy's jib. 

Yahoo! Sports reports one fan went the extra mile to throw some postseason salt on the Angels slugger's wounds. 

It's all in the name of good, old-fashioned smack talk and some delicious pizza. 

The man with the following signs is Marty Prather, and he traded the tremendous blasts to Albert Pujols' ego for equally delicious pies. 

Prather apparently owns some Dominoes franchises in the Springfield, Mo. area and made a deal with a friend of his.

He would trade some pizza for any signs his buddy could paint for him featuring snarky blasts on Pujols. 

I do believe he earned himself some pizzas. 

Better still, the 54-year-old Prather claims to be a 30-year season-ticket holder, making him a loyal fan, as well as a resourceful one. 

As for Pujols, he is back home counting his L.A. Angels money like a chiseled Scrooge McDuck. It seems $240 million can buy you a great many things. 

It just can't buy you a playoff berth.
