Perhaps the two largest and best-numbered active players in all MLB they are without a doubt the Latin Americans Miguel Cabrera and Albert Pujols, who in the book of many, have your guaranteed ticket to the Cooperstown Hall of Fame when they are eligible, and that is perhaps something that is already taken for granted at the moment. However, there are those who do not think this way.
In an edition of his column “En La Pelota”, the senior Venezuelan journalist Juan Vené, mentioned that, at least for him, the entrance to the Hall of Fame for both the “Tigre de Aragua” and for “La Maquina”, does not he is completely safe and from here to being eligible a lot can happen, according to him.
Cabrera, Pujols and no one else has that for sure. Many years to go, five after retirement. Many things can happen
The reality is that Vené is not wrong, since it is true that many things can happen between now and both appear on the ballot, but by their numbers and achievements one would think that Cooperstown is a synonym of both Pujols and Cabrera.
Cabrera recently became the last member of the 500 home run club, in addition to being 13 hits from reaching 3,000. For his part, Pujols has long reached those rubrics, with 3,301 hits and 679 homers, 21 away from becoming just the fourth player in history to reach 700 home runs.
