Pujols, is a damm good hitter, no doubt. The POINT is that he's hitting off of guys that 30 years ago plus, wouldn't even be in the big leagues. Sure the guys are bigger and stronger, the population as a whole is. But, bigger and, stronger, doesn't equate to better.
Because of the modern day excercise regime,guys are definitely stronger. There's guys that are stronger than Mays, Mantle , Williams, Ruth, etc. but, you can't say they're better. How could you?
And, you say that what Dimmagio did was luck? He soon there after, went on to hit I think, in 38 more, straight games!
Guys today throwing in the 90's? Big deal. They can't find the plate, like Craig Hanson couldn't for the Red Sox.
You don't need to be a big horse to be sucessful in the game of baseball. Look at Dustin Pedroia, he's up for MVP of the league.
How big is he?!!!
