Random Stat Hunter is a new series where I get bored and start searching for random stats. Today, I decided to search Albert Pujols and his career at bats against MLB Pitchers

~Pujols loves the Big Unit with 5 home runs, 13 RBI and an OPS of 1.708 in 26 at bats.
~And he really really loves Odalis Perez as he's hit him at a .609 average, 2.110 OPS with 5 HR and 15 RBI in 33 career at bats.
~Former Closer Todd Jones would prefer Albert Pujols to not be in his dreams as the sluggers is 6 for 7 lifetime against Jones with 3 home runs and 3 more walks.
~Nate Robertson has faced Pujols the most without recording an out. In the 7 at bats against Pujols Robertson gave up 4 singles and 3 walks.
