Pujols leaning toward elbow surgery stlcardinals.com: News: "'The sooner that I get it done, the better it's going to be for me,' Pujols told KSDK-TV, 'because I'm going to heal quicker than if I wait two or three more years. It needs to be done.'"

4thebirds... Albert Pujols may not want to prolong the inevitable any longer. According to this Matthew Leach article, the Cards' slugger is considering a special surgery thought to be necessary in correcting a problem with his throwing arm.

The operation, known as Tommy John Surgery, can put a player on the pine, so to speak, for about six months. If Pujols is going to get the operation, it may be as soon as he is done for this season, but that is speculation.
