The Angels have a long and storied history, one filled with joy, tears, pain, and blood. Many great players have come and gone under the Big A, Tim Salmon, Garret Anderson, and Nolan Ryan to name a few, yet in the history of the Angels franchise not a single player has gone to Cooperstown wearing a Halo on his head. How could a franchise that has been honored by many historical players be shunned in the eternal afterlife of baseball that is the Hall of Fame? This current Angels team has many young stars with endless potential, but is there really a single player you can point to and say "He's a Hall of Famer, no doubt about it." The only player on the team that gives me vague hope of seeing him in Cooperstown wearing a Halo is Jered Weaver; well...that was my only hope a few months ago. With the Angels acquisition of Albert Pujols they now have a sure-fire Hall of Famer, a no doubter in anyone's book. However, the real question about his Hall of Fame eligibility isn't whether or not he'll make it, but whose cap will he grace in the Hall of Fame for all eternity.
He may have been a Cardinal for the past 11 years, but will he be remembered as an Angel for the rest of baseball history?
