Pujols vs Chicago: Is he a Cub beater?

 

With the upcoming Chicago St Louis series almost upon us, let’s take a look at how Albert Pujols has done against the Cubs. 

As it is, Pujols has played pretty much the equivalent of a near-full season against Chicago.  He has 503 at-bats and 590 plate appearances versus the good guys.

How has he done?

G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI SB CS BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS
138 503 92 147 25 1 39 104 6 4 72 59 .292 .385 .579 .963

 

A pretty solid “year” I’d say though I will point out his averages are all down from his total career numbers.  Still nothing to sneeze at.  And that homerun figure of 39?  That’s the highest number he’s hit against any opponent.  NL Central opponents Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Houston are all very close, though.  Milwaukee, however has only surrendered 26 to Albert.

For what it’s worth, his Wrigley numbers are .282/.369/.563.
