Why all the Pujols bashing? The guy was making an argument for why he thought he should have won the MVP. That's not whining. It's being honest. I look at all the selfish players out there that dog it on the field and in the off-season, I wish there were more athletes like Pujols for my oldest son to look up to. (Pujols is his current idol. Much better than when he looked up to Bonds.) As far as MVP, I don't have a problem with Howard, although I would have given the edge to Pujols. The voters went for the sexy HR numbers.
As far as salaries, the combined salaries of Howard (NL MVP) and Morneau (AL MVP) add to less than a million dollars.
"THE SKIES SHALL RAIN BLOOD AND ALL THE WORLD SHALL QUAKE IN THE SHADOW OF THE CARDINAL AND GOLD!"
As a devout Cardinals fan, I must say that one thing that has begun to bother me about Pujols is his sometimes sneaky ugly side. He does great things on the field and off, but then sometimes he says something like this, or he flips his bat when he's ******. He may be a fantastic player, but he hasn't developed the leadership or class that you would expect from someone in his position. Don't get me wrong, I love Albert, but he has some growing up to do. I'm glad he has teammates like Scott Rolen, Jim Edmonds, Chris Carpenter, and David Eckstein.
I wouldn't be tossing Jim Edmonds into that same list. The others are OK, though.
Um since when did D Lee win the MVP? Pujols won it last yeard bud.
Pujols should not make this complaint. His team was worse than the Phillies throughout the season and thanks to being in a horse **** division were able to make the playoffs. All the credit in the world to them for winning it but don't become all high and mighty. Howard's hitting in the clutch was....clutch! When the playoffs were on the line, he was the hottest. That is true clutch. He had many game winning hits
Is Howard better than Pujols? Of course not. Anyone who says that doesn't know the game of baseball. But Howard, this year was deserving of that award. Quit crying Pujols. Are Pujols true colors starting to show?
I was referring to the all star game a few years back.
Pujols himself said that Lee deserved it (the start)
