Albert Pujols, 1B

 

Career: 2001-, Cardinals, Angels
Fun fact: He and Miguel Cabrera are only Hall of 100 members to debut this century.


No one has had a first 10 seasons like Pujols, who hit .300 with 30 homers and 100 RBIs in each of those years.

He's close to being among the five greatest hitters ever, passing Lou Gehrig as the greatest first baseman, and hitting 700 homers. One more MVP and he joins Barry Bonds as the only players with more than three. -- Tim Kurkjian
