    Now that Bonds is effectively banished from baseball, Pujols can make up for those lost 4 years. :p

    Pujols has been in the league for eight years, right? I'm thinking...twelve.

    The dude is amazing. I agree with those who say he's the best since Teddy Ballgame.

    But, will he accept the award? [face_mischief]

    2006 comments.


    Words have a funny way of biting people in the ass. Or their Pujols.

    In 2006, Ryan Howard won the National League Most Valuable Player Award ? prompting runner-up Albert Pujols to say the following ?

    ?I see it this way: Someone who doesn?t take his team to the playoffs doesn?t deserve to win the MVP?

    Pujols had the sour grapes in 2006 after leading his St. Louis Cardinals to a World Series Championship while Howard?s Philadelphia Phillies didn?t make the playoffs.

    Fast Forward to today ? Albert Pujols won the 2008 NL MVP, beating out runner-up Ryan Howard. Howard?s Phillies won the World Series while Pujols? Cardinals didn?t make the playoffs.

    OOPS. You can?t write this stuff any better.

    I would love to hear Pujols say ?I really don?t deserve this? when he accepts the award. Even though I think Pujols is 100 times more deserving of the 2008 NL MVP than Ryan Howard.

    By being named MVP, Pujols will get a $200,000 bonus from the Cardinals, per his contract.


    :oops:

    First line is really classy.:p

    Eh, I thought Pujols got robbed in 2006, so I'm cool with it.

    that article doesn't mention that a day later Pujols retracted his statement and said Howard deserved the award...

    Dustin Pedroia named AL MVP. Morneau was 2nd, Youkilis 3rd.

    If Morneau hadn't fallen into a two week long slump to end the season he would have won his second MVP. It just blows me away that he still gets little respect from so many, not even making the top five for so many.

    I even saw A-Rod get a mention......oh, dear.

    Pedroia deserved to win, but guys like A-Rod and Hamilton weren't in the mix for a reason peoples:p
