No way! He predicted exact date of Pujols' 700th

September 24th, 2022

MLB Network's Greg Amsinger just might be able to see the future.

Coming into the season, Albert Pujols was 21 home runs short of reaching the 700 milestone. It would have been bold to bet on a 42-year-old to hit that many big flies when he wasn't even guaranteed a starting spot with the Cardinals this season.

But Amsinger was daring enough.

"Albert is going to play more than people think," Amsinger said. "He is. He's a draw, and he's gonna be productive."

Amsinger not only predicted Pujols would reach 700, but on April 13, he also predicted the exact date: a Friday night, in September, at Dodger Stadium.

And sure enough, Pujols came through.
