    Thumbs up Albert Pujols Vs Barry Bonds

    Now, I know what many of you are already thinking: Not again!.

    Before you make your judgement on who the better player is, I think its fair to look at a head to head comparison of the two superstars first.

    In this comparison, we can see many head to head stats, as well as awards and achievements.

    Since Albert Pujols has only played 12 seasons, it's fair to compare Barry Bonds' first 12 seasons.

    Take a look and decide for yourself who's the better player.

    To that point?

    Age 32?


    Sure, they are very close.


    89.0 rWAR for Bonds - .282/.408/.551 with gold glove defense in left and some time in center
    vs 88.5 rWAR for Pujols - .325/.414/.608 with gold glove defense at first

    Pujols was the better hitter, Bonds the better fielder at a harder position

    I'd say these two are equal.

    Now what Bonds did post 97 though, is highly unlikely to be replicated. However, if it is, Pujols will more than earn his contract

    The answer here, for me, is Bonds.
    With the deepest of regrets I am announcing that I will be leaving Pro Sports Daily. No reason in particular but wanted to thank everyone for a great 6 years here. Lots of great discussion and good poll series as well. Also fun re-drafts. Best of luck to you all in the future.

    At this point? I'll go with Pujols

    And wow Pujols is on pace to get the HR record lol, I honestly didn't think he was 100 home runs ahead at this point

    Pujols. He's the only one of these two who didn't cheat his way to a great career.

    If Barry retired instead of started taking PED's then he still would have had a great career.

    It's not cheating if 90% of your peers are doing it.

    no,its still cheating.numbers that do it dont define if it is or not.if 90% of your classmates cheat on a test by getting the answer key,it doesnt make it within the rules,just means alot of you are doing the wrong/bad thing

    That analogy doesn't work considering pitchers used steroids as well.

    Pre 1999 Barry Bonds>Albert Pujols

    As a hitter, and as an overall player.

    Bond had back to back 200 OPS+ seasons (204 and 206), while Pujols career high is 191.

    Say what you will about Bonds, but back in his day he was a beast well before BALCO.

    Arod vs Pujols would be a better comparison, and I'd give the edge to Arod.

    If 90% of the people in a room punch your mom, is it still bad if another one takes a turn.


    Simply it's still cheating... To suggest he's not a cheater is just a homer argument.

    You never know. Shoot, I thought ARod was baseball's last hope. This is a naive comment. The drugs are ahead of the testing.
