Albert Pujols – Best Player Right Now?


Albert Pujols is an amazing hitter. At only 31 years-old, Pujols has already reached elite status with some astounding stats. When you look at his worst year in the big leagues, it looks like the stat line of someone’s career year. In 2007, he only hit .327 (in 1 full seasons he only hit lower twice), 32 homeruns  (his lowest total ever), 103 RBI (again his lowest total), and only 99 runs (the only time he was below 100). That stat line is better than most players can dream of in the big leagues and this was probably his worst season in the bigs. Simply put he is a crazy good hitter.

If you add that to some of the other stats he has put up, he is a sure fire first ballot hall of famer. Six times he has hit 40 homeruns, hit 50 doubles twice, the 2003 NL batting champ, two time gold glove winner, a 30 game hitting streak, a nine time all-star, three time NL MVP, 2001 NL Rookie of the Year, six time silver slugger winner, and apart of the 2006 World Series champions.

But one of the more amazing things with Pujols, is how everyone says how great a guy he is. Do you hear that about some of the other big stars? No! I have NEVER heard anyone say that about Alex Rodriguez who might be the best comparable star. And recently 60 Minutes did a gret job showing what a great guy Pujols is. The only hope for this baseball fan, and I am not a Cardinals fan, is that Pujols is never linked to PEDs (steroids). I don’t think it will happen, but in today’s day and age you never really know.

Pujols is not only putting up amazing numbers, but he is doing it in a time where fans are skeptical and they need a star who they know is clean. I think Pujols is that player. Of course, I don’t know 100% that he never took them, but I am confident he never has. That means the game of baseball has a star, and perhaps the best of the biggest, that is clean AND a good guy. In today’s day and age that is something that is hard to find.

If you missed it, check out the interview with Pujols and see just why everyone says he is a great guy. I’d love to hear your thoughts after you have seen it.

There are three things in my life which I really love: God, my family, and baseball. The only problem - once baseball season starts, I change the order around a bit. ~Al Gallagher, 1971
