|Busch League: Pujols Calls Out Cardinals CF Rasmus
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A season that is slipping away for the St. Louis Cardinals has turned personal, with star slugger Albert Pujols criticizing young outfielder Colby Rasmus.
Rasmus has admitted he wasn't always happy while playing for the Cardinals as a rookie last year and this season. The 24 year old center fielder is denying reports, however, that he asked in July to be traded.
Pujols says Rasmus needs more time in the majors before he starts complaining. The three-time NL MVP said Sunday that if Rasmus wants to play somewhere else, the Cardinals should accommodate him.
The Cardinals trail NL Central leading Cincinnati by seven games.
