Albert Pujols is so hobbled by plantar fasciitis in his left foot that simply watching him run is painful, so not surprisingly people are starting to ask the Los Angeles Angels first baseman (and now mostly designated hitter) if he plans to have offseason surgery.
Pujols more or less avoided answering, but did tell Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times:
“When we get to that point, we’ll talk about it. I’m definitely going to try to do something after the season to help me out and not play in that pain I’ve been playing in. There’s no doubt that I’ll be a full-time first baseman next year.”
