Albert Pujols Believes That Derek Jeter Is Comparable to Jesus

A few years ago, Albert Pujols and Derek Jeter were at the top of the baseball world. Now it appears that Jeter is on a different level than everyone else—on and off the field.

The longtime New York Yankees shortstop announced on Wednesday that the 2014 season would be his last year playing professional baseball. That announcement led to a lot of sentiment around the country, and players from around the league shared their reactions.

Many players payed him compliments, such as calling him a "class act" or things along those lines. One player went above and beyond while showing his respect for Jeter.

Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols came up with what may end up being MLB's best quote of the year, via the Los Angeles Times' Mike DiGiovanna:

Alright then.

Given that both players are on their way to Cooperstown, compliments don't get much better than that.
