CASE FOR (-300): He needs two blasts with 12 games to play. The Cardinals are locked into the playoffs, so they can afford to start Pujols as often as he likes. He broke up Blake Snell’s no-hitter Wednesday night.
CASE AGAINST: Will Pujols be pressing? Will opponents pitch around him? Final six games are against the dreadful Pirates, but Pittsburgh hurlers don’t yield a ton of bombs (1.03 per game).
