Every team has a few missing pieces here and there. Yet there are a few players who excel at baseball enouh to immediatly turn a losing team into a champion. \
There is one player in particular that combines every statistic and every tool perfectly. Yet who is this master of the field? You might just be surpirsed.
Lets take a look back at a few players that are the team. There isn't an I in team. But there is a m and an e.
Albert Pujols. Is this the guy? Haha you wish. Yea he has everything I describe. Except speed. Sorry Albert, maybe another day.
Hanley Ramirez. He owns the Marlins. Yet will he come in to his own and show that he is the MVP he deserves? Time will tell
Derek Jeter....No comment.
Ichiro Suzuki. If he hit 15 homers every year Pujols wouldn't be the best in the game, it would be this little bugger.
Chris Carpenter. Man this guy can pitch. In my opinion, he is the best pitcher in the game. He can out shine any other of the greats. And a bonus, he came back from Tommy John. Putting in his averages, he was due for a CY Young in '07 or '08.
Ok lets get down to bussines. Who is the player that can make any team a winner.
It is...drum roll please....
Ya ya. He is. He can hit anywere in the lineup. If he hit third or second in stead of leadoff he would lead the MLB in RBI, as well as Hits. He has a better AVG and more hits then the entire Washington Nationals all time totals.
He can startup an entire team, add him to the Pirates and they have 15 more wins then they do know. Add them to the Nationals and they...ok that may be the only team.
Pujols has the power, but Ichi has everything else, and he still cna bust some out.
