If asked in March to name the player most likely to win a Triple Crown, you'd pick Pujols every year. Indeed, Prince Albert is no stranger to the Triple Crown chase. In 2003, at the age of 23, he led the majors with a .359 average while falling just four homers and 17 RBIs short of National League leaders Jim Thome and Preston Wilson (another Rockie who drove in 84 of his 141 runs at home). In 2009, Pujols led the majors with 47 homers, but fell just six RBIs short of co-leaders Ryan Howard and Prince Fielder and 15 points behind batting leader Hanley Ramirez.
