Thanks for that. Looking at the numbers "Storming" Norman Cash was a damn good player for Detroit.

We will miss him when he is gone after next season.  Truly one of the greatest players in the history of MLB (same with Pujols).  As of this moment, they are the two greatest players of this generation.

This year he is the heaviest strictly singles hitter in history.

Dang, I thought for sure this was going to be one of those 'making fun of Miggy's age' / images through time meme threads.

...not going all let my effort go to waste at this point, appropriate or not

Miguel has a fair shot at finishing this season (or early next) in the top 20 all time for hits. It's unlikely he could improve that to top 10 even if plays another full season similar to '22 in '23 so that's about the maximum expectation he can have for his legacy. While he continues to collect hits, he cannot maintain enough power to be even an average net value hitter any more. I hope he decides to call it quits at the end of this season, but I'm afraid there are 40 million reasons he will force the Tigers to cut him next year after he arrives at ST, which will be sort of sad but a necessary move. Who knows, maybe he will accept less in an arranged buy out, though honestly I don't know why he should.

Not a lot longer if you are counting great years.  Neither Cabrera nor Pujols has been great for a long time.  

 

Pujols years with the Cardinals stand with the greatest run of anyone ever in MLB history.  Trout, while spectacular, isn't on the same level as Pujols for the first 10 or 12 years.

Pujols was better.  Trout had a higher OPS+ the first 12 years (176 to 168).  Pujols was more durable (91.5 WAR to 79.9 WAR) and that is important.  Cabrera lagged behind: 154 OPS+ and 59.8 WAR.  Those are awesome numbers, but not quite the same class as the others.
