The St. Louis slugger took aim at the National League manager, who just happened to be Tony La Russa of his own Cardinals.
Pujols says it's the All-Star game and La Russa can do what he wants. But he says if he wasn't expecting to play, he wouldn't have come.
Pujols was the N-L M-V-P in 2005 and key to the Cardinals' win in the World Series last year. He said La Russa didn't talk to him the entire game.
