What Excellence Means

March 31, 2011

Here’s one glimpse of excellence, appropriate for an opening day: Joe Posnanski on Albert Pujols:

“Albert Pujols has a chance to be known as the greatest player in the history of baseball. There are numerous statistical measurements to make the point, including the simple point that through age 30 he has more homers than Babe Ruth, more hits than Pete Rose, more RBIs than Hank Aaron, more runs than Rickey Henderson did at the same age.”
