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:

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.
