Things have been getting worse and worse for Pujols since he left the St. Louis Cardinals in favor of the Angels, and now things have hit an all-time low.
As I wrote last month, Pujols' struggles have been a direct result of his slowing bat speed. His career lows in batting average, on-base percentage, slugging, OPS, home runs and more are because he can't turn on pitches like he used to, which is why his days as a slugger are numbered—and it's not a large number.
Pujols was once the most feared hitter in baseball, and it appeared that he could break record after record. Those days are now behind us, so let's take a look at the records Pujols will no longer be able to break.
