Is Albert Pujols the perfect player?

Albert Pujols may be best known for his hitting prowess, but dig a little deeper and you'll find he excels in every aspect of the game.

Pujols plays a flawless first base, showcasing enormous range and excellent decision-making and has a chance this season to accomplish the rare feat of homering more often than he's struck out. One might even say he's as close to perfect as a player can get. But he has competition.

We've assembled a list of the most "perfect" players in MLB history, ranging from the turn of the century (Honus Wagner, who was the best offensive and defensive player in the league for several years) to the golden age of baseball (Willie Mays, who made headlines with his stellar defense as well as his powerful bat) to modern times (Ken Griffey Jr. and Barry Bonds, both history-making outfielders in more ways than one).
