Who knew Albert Pujols loved Derek Jeter so much? With baseball awash with emotion after Derek Jeter announced 2014 would be his last season, leave it to Pujols to heap the highest of praise on Jeter.

Legend? Bigger than that. Hall of Famer? Still bigger. The new logo of baseball (like Jerry West in the NBA)? Nope. Still bigger.

Pujols thinks Derek Jeter is close to the level of Jesus. 

Well, Pujols did go from being a Cardinal to an Angel. Maybe he's got more insight into religion than we all assumed.
