Max Kellerman of ESPN has found himself in the news for the wrong reasons, as well as in the crosshairs of St. Louis Cardinals fans.
On Sunday, Albert Pujols, who is in his final season in the Majors, hit his 697th career home run to put the Cards ahead of the Pittsburgh Pirates, where they would stay en-route to a 4-3 comeback win.
Just yesterday, Pujols’ go-ahead home run was played on his show, “This Just In.”
Kellerman had a rather reckless, or should we call it, a foolish take on Pujols’ resurgence, insinuating that the future Hall of Famer was using PEDs and exclaiming “I’ll have what he’s having.”

Send In The Clowns
It doesn’t even end there.
Kellerman also went as far as to say that Pujols wasn’t putting in the effort during some of his down seasons.
This is an incredibly bold and foolish take by Kellerman.
Pujols has never once tested positive for PEDs, he never found himself on the Mitchell List from 2003 and has still been one of baseball’s best hitters ever since he came to the big leagues.
For Kellerman to suggest that Pujols is on PEDs is incredibly reckless.
One can’t imagine that’ll ring too well with Pujols or the vast majority of Cardinals fans.
Of course, Kellerman is no stranger to controversy, but this is quite a surprising take.
He had no evidence to back up his claim either, which makes him look even more foolish.
This take is completely ludicrous and baseless and is simply a distraction in the midst of Pujols’ chase for 700 career home runs.
It would be so much easier if Kellerman just kept his mouth shut and appreciated Pujols’ greatness.
