Putting money and everything else aside, I can tell you that I am very excited that the Mariners will be seeing Pujols more next season (just a little bit of sarcasm here) as a rival in the American League West. But it is fun to think of all the match-ups with King Felix and Michael Pineda.
And now think about this. The American League West will feature three of the best players in the game over the last 11 seasons with Ichiro, Albert Pujols and Michael Young. This is a look at the hits leaders since 2001 and their respective stats:
