Albert Pujols joins 3,000 hit club, adding to latest chapter of Hall of Fame career

The hit wasn’t his most majestic, more well placed than well struck.

But there was no questioning the significance of the single, this accomplishment about an accumulation of moments rather than one crowning instant.

In his 18th season and 17 years, one month and four days after his first career hit, Albert Pujols collected No. 3,000 on Friday, overshadowing a 5-0 Angels victory and everything the game included.

Rice won an MVP and had six top-5 finishes. 8 ASG in 16 seasons. Again, I'm too young to judge, but the facts at least support the narrative that he was viewed as one of the top players in the game

if you had said in 1984 (or maybe even as late as 1986) that there was a chance that Rice would NOT make the Hall, people would have said you were crazy. But he cliffed completely after age 32
