Card of the Day: 12/25/15

2002 Donruss Studio Spirit of the Game Albert Pujols

It's so obvious and evident, if you watch him closely, from his rookie year to today, he has played the game to win. That means when he's on base, he's trying to do something to win a game as a base-runner. It's the same on defense, at bat. If he needs to start a rally, he'll stroke an opposite-field hit. The biggest compliment I can give Albert is he's never changed. He's a perfect player. In all categories of the game -- hitting, running, defense, cheerleading, being a mentor -- you see Hall of Fame greatness. -Tony LaRussa
