Insight: Although his second half of the season (.268 BA, 7 HR, 36 RBI) has not been as good as the first half (.279BA, 20 HR, 64 RBI), Pujols has rebounded nicely in 2014. While he will never be the player he once was, Pujols is still a major threat at the plate, and will continue to be over the next couple of seasons.
