2. Albert Pujols Is on the Cusp of the 3K Club
Albert Pujols’ storied MVP seasons may be behind him. But in 2018, the 38-year-old Angels first baseman will likely reach 3,000 career hits, one of the most prestigious milestones in baseball. If he accomplishes the feat, he’ll be only the 32nd player to have done so, joining the ranks of heavyweights such as Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Stan Musial, and Cal Ripken, Jr. Over his 17-year career, Pujols has averaged 175 slaps per season and stands just 32 shy of his goal, so odds are you can watch a bit of history unfold when he steps up to the plate in 2018. That said, he has a long way to go if he ever hopes to top Pete Rose’s record 4,256 career hits.
