ST. LOUIS (AP) - An attorney for Albert Pujols has discounted another lawyer's suggestion that Pujols and former Cardinals slugger Jack Clark take lie-detector tests to settle Pujols' defamation lawsuit over Clark's claim that Pujols used steroids.
Pujols is suing Clark, who played for the Cardinals from 1985 to 1987, for his comments on a local radio show accusing Pujols of using steroids. Clark's lawyer, Al Watkins, suggested Monday both men take polygraph tests.
Pujols, a nine-time All-Star who played for the Cardinals from 2001-11, filed a defamation lawsuit against Clark in St. Louis County, seeking unspecified damages that would be donated to charity.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/19PT8MO) Martin Singer, Pujols' lawyer in Los Angeles where the slugger plays for the Angels, says sworn testimony, ``not inadmissible polygraphs and absurd publicity ploys -- is what counts.''
