Beyond the Box Score: On the lack of interest in Albert Pujols’s 600 HR and Adrián Beltré’s pursuit of 3,000 hits

Had Biggio retired a year early, it would be interesting to see how it would have affected his Hall of Fame entry. He had to wait too long for entry as it was, because voters have historically struggled with all-around players such as Biggio. There are likely still voters who can’t be bothered to look beyond whether a player got 3,000 hits or not, but the electorate is gaining a higher percentage of voters who actually know how to evaluate players’ careers with nuance.

Angels’ Albert Pujols’ 600th HR is grand slam | MLB.com

Albert Pujols’ march to 600 is complete, and he got there in unprecedented, grand fashion.

The 37-year-old Angels slugger crushed the milestone home run—a two-out grand slam into left field—off Twins right-hander Ervin Santana in the bottom of the fourth inning on Saturday in the Angels’ 7-2 win over the Twins.

The decline of Albert Pujols has been a shame. | Sports on Earth

NEWSFLASH: Players get old. Paying them as if they won’t is a problem for their teams, not the players.
