    Trout isn't that off from Pujols as it stands now. 4-5 more years of his current production and he'll have passed him.

    And I know his reg numbers don't match up to those pitchers, but I'm taking Madbum over all of their careers if postseason is a factor.

    Great thread, I was just thinking about this the other day. Among players who are still active as of right now:

    Albert Pujols
    Mike Trout
    Miguel Cabrera
    Clayton Kershaw
    Max Scherzer
    Justin Verlander
    Zack Greinke
    Buster Posey
    Madison Bumgarner (his postseason numbers alone vault him onto the list)
    Joey Votto

    Cano's doping allegations and Altuve's scandal make them questionable to being future HOFers (even if their numbers say they are), while guys like Yelich and Betts are still way too early on in their careers to be put on this list.

    I think a case could be made for Arenado over some of the guys that have been mentioned
