    Who will have better career numbers: Pujols or Cabrera?

    Who do you think will retire with better career stats?
    I'm talking the gaudy glamor stats, not the sabermetric stuff.

    Pujols and Cabrera both started very young and have Triple Crown type numbers nearly every season.
    Pujols always plays through nagging injuries, so that could impact his longevity.
    Cabrera is a little chunky, and that may or may not impact the length of his career.

    So if you had to choose, who will finish with more mind-blowing stats?

    Albert Pujols, age 33

    13 seasons

    .323 avg.
    2,272 hits
    479 home runs
    1,452 rbi
    1,388 runs
    1.018 OPS

    Miguel Cabrera, age 30

    11 seasons

    .319 avg.
    1,841 hits
    325 home runs
    1,152 rbi
    982 runs
    .957 OPS

    Miguel Cabrera is not chunky. Miguel Cabrera is thick. There is a big difference.

    I think it's certainly plausible that Miggy might end up with better numbers. If that does happen, does Miggy outshine Pujols from a hobby perspective though?

    Interesting subject.

    I find this subject interesting too. I really think that in the long run Miggy has a shot at having better stats then Pujols and that in the future it's quite possible that neither will really shine in the hobby, they will still be collected but more in a Mike Schmidt type of way. People will be interested in the new players and Pujols blew his shot at being collected like Griffey or Rickey Henderson when he left St. Louis. I just don't see St. Louis fans collecting Pujols heavily in the future also with Miggy, Detroit just isn't new york and while he'll put up great numbers unless he has some Jeter like longevity he probably won't break any records and will still float along in a similar hobby situation that he is in now.

    Cabrera is this generations Frank Robinson. A lot of people fail to realize how awesome Frank Robinson was.

    Yes people know who he is. It's he is Detroit Not New York Boston St. Louis that is why his hobby love lacks. Pujols had this being in St. Louis but left. He is slowing becoming frank Robinson as well.

    Miggy's main hobby issue is that he is not Caucasian
    What you collect is awesome, what i collect sucks.

    Yeah, Jeter, Griffey, Rickey Henderson, and Pujols got the same raw deal to name a few.

    How about going with something like his checkered past?

    I believe Pujols will hit 600+ hrs and have 2000+ rbis and .320 + ba and go down as 1 of the top 2 rh hitters ever!

    If I believed that I would have to stock up on Rcs of Pujols. Those are numbers few will ever reach again.

    Cabrera is now leading the AL in 2 of the 3 Triple Crown categories after today's monster game.
    He's leading in batting average by 21 points and rbi by 5.
