Earlier today, Chris Mihlfeld, the trainer of Albert Pujols, sternly rebuked Jack Clark’s claim that the Angels first baseman has used performance-enhancing drugs. Mihlfeld said, “I would bet my life on it and probably drop dead on the spot if I found out he has.”

Mike DiGiovanna of the L.A. Times is reporting that Pujols has vowed to take legal action against Clark:

#Angels slugger Albert Pujols said he will take legal action vs. Jack Clark and his employer.

Pujols said it was “irresponsible and reckless for Jack Clark to falsely accuse me of using PEDs.”

For what it’s worth, Pujols has aged like a normal superstar, going from immortal in his late 20’s to great in his early 30’s, and to mortal this year at age 33. He has a .767 OPS in 443 trips to the plate. He has been on the disabled list since July 26 as he is dealing with a partial tear of the plantar fascia in his left foot.
