You can't compare the two, Ichiro is a one dimensional player.
Pujols is by far the better player, he has done something that Ichiro.. even Bonds and Vlad never managed to do. Hit over 100 runs, 30+ homers, 100+
RBI's and well over a .300 average in each of his four years he has been playing. He will only get better and better. Pujols led St Louis to there div
championship, what has Ichiro done? I'd take Pujols everytime...
for me it would depend on who else was on the team. if i had a bunch of players that get on base and can steal alot of bases it'd take Pujols to
drive the runs in. If i had people capable of hitting it out of the park every time they stepped up to the plate i'd take Ichiro. In an ideal world
i'd have both of them with Pujols batting behind ichiro, but how often do situations like that happen? Oh yeah everytime the Yankees decide they need
to add $100 million to the payroll.
Pujols is by far the better of the two. Ichiro relies on his 1b hitting and doesn't put up any decent power numbers. Now if he added some pop to his
bat and smacked in a few homeruns that might make things a little different.
