Just because ARod's build is thinner doesn't mean he's in better shape..


No but he runs faster, throws harder, has a more athletic body, less body fat etc....oh and he hasn't "Pulled his side muscle or much more in his years up.

IMO Pujols WILL become to injured to get close to the big records

Are you at all aware of how asinine this post is? Where exactly is the listing of body fat % you are finding for MLB players?

I suspect that you have some sort of crush on Arod. Pujols was on the cover of Muscle and Fitness not that long ago. Believe me, he's in fine shape. I won't say better/worse than Arod... because I'm not the one who apparently has found shirtless pictures of both on the internet. :-b

Easy killer...even if their body is exactly the same Arod still runs faster and throws harder. He also looks in better athletic shape. Where as pujols is much thicker which doesn't bode well for the long run.

Now maybe I'm wrong because I don't subscribe to muscle and fitness steroid magazine and I haven't oggled either one on the internet.

So before you go calling my post asinine maybe you should chill out with YOUR man crush on Pujols

Wow, I didn't realize A. Jones' current HR pace was so comparable to Aaron's at the same age.

He definitely has a slight chance, although his work ethic will probably hold him back from ever making a strong run at the 700 club.

Yeah, under the radar huh? He isn't THAT far behind A-Rod's pace either.

It doesn't matter all that much how great a player is through age 30. Career records are set from age 30 on, some bodies breakdown and some don't. Which players will go which way is a crapshoot.
