"I wish I have half the career Pujols has had and he's still going," Machado said. "I think he could reach 700, but at the end of the day, they're two great role models, two Dominican-born players, two guys I looked up to growing up. Just to have half the career they have is a great accomplishment, because it's not easy getting there. It's a lot of blood, a lot of sweat and tears, a lot of time away from your family, so it's not easy. Just to see it and be a part of it, it's a great honor."
