When a hairline crackers of the forearm sent Albert Pujols to the disabled list, many wrote off the man and the Cardinals.
Fifteen days later, they are still waiting for the sky to fall in Saint Louis. After going 6-7 since losing "The Machine" and keeping themselves afloat in the division since no one else in that division seems to have a pulse right now, there are rumors abound that Pujols is about to come back.
