    Angels' Albert Pujols remains focused and gets results
    The word "slump" exists for Albert Pujols, and the Angels slugger will occasionally drop it into conversation, but that doesn't mean he puts much stock into it. "I don't believe in slumps," Pujols said. "I think that's something people have created to...
