Albert Pujols won the NL Triple Crown for the decade

I think that by now, we all know that Albert Pujols is one of the greatest players ever to pick up a baseball bat. But sometimes, I still see things that amaze me. Like the fact that Albert Pujols has won the NL's Triple Crown for the 2000's.

From 2000-2009, no player in the National League was as good or as consistent as Pujols. It's no surprise that he led the league in HR and RBI, but for a guy with his power to lead the NL in batting average over the decade, that's ridiculous. He was also #1 in pretty much every other major hitting category, out of anyone with 5000+ at bats.

Best player ever? He might be, when it's all said and done.
