wow, that's kind of neat. Maybe I'm biased in favor of Pujols b/c he's bombed the Cubs over the years? Still, to have done what he's done at his age really just blows me away.
While Bonds' monster season was amazing, look at his career, particularly the early, .223 part vs. big Al.
Ted Williams (whose headless corpse will undoubtedly come kick my ass for even suggesting he's not the best hitter of all time...)
I still think that Pujols, who may still have some even more amazing years in front of him, will surpass Williams. While he may not catch the single season fireworks Bonds put up, I don't see him having any asterisks either and I have to give him bonus points for being a leader on the team and playing hard and being a pleasant human being in public unlike either Bonds or Williams give him some bonus points in my book.
