Pujols, 33, is a future Hall of Famer (with the standard boilerplate disclaimer about what happens to his chances if PED use is ever alleged)
The Beast of Yucka Flats?
I promise I will not look - but isn't this Frank Thomas?
You know, people have been saying this a lot, myself included, but I just looked it up and he actually had a bunch of really excellent years post-30. 163 OPS+ in 2000, 146 in '03, 156 in '04, 131 in '05, and even 140 with 39 homers when he was with the A's in '06 - those would be some killer peak years if it weren't for the first half of his career (he was at 182 through '97). Frankly, it's above the standard of performance we're seeing from Pujols right now.
he could be on par with the williams and ruth,
5 years out of the heart of his career
he still managed 521 Home Runs and 189 RBI
A typo, I know, but those numbers would make sense if the categories were reversed.
