Created: December 10, 2009, 11:11 AM

Is Albert Pujols the best player of the 2000s?

The 2000s may have featured more collected baseball talent than any decade prior.

What other time could boast the all-time and single-season home run leader, the seasonal hits leader, the best closer in history, contenders for the best third and first basemen in history, and a pitcher who threw a perfect game in an off year? We'd be willing to bet that, say, the 1890s can't live up to that standard.
