9. Albert Pujols

Bonafides From 2002-2012: 2x World Series Champion, 3x NL MVP, 2004 NLCS MVP, 8x All-Star, 2x Golden Glove Winner
Since Complex launched, Albert Pujols has hit .328, with 1,199 RBIs, and 437 home runs—that's a great baseball career, much less a 10-year run. The Machine's also banked $90 million in that time, but that's nothing compared to what he's set to earn over the next ten years. This winter, the Angels locked up the league's best hitter until 2022 for the bargain price of $254 million dollars. Albert, we're just hoping our next decade will be as nice as yours homie.
