Pujols is NL MVP
I read an interesing line in the Daily Quickie this morning. Is Pujols reaching the "Shaq Status" where he is so good, but people just take it for granted and exclude him from MVP talks because he is always so good. Pujols should have won the MVP 4 or 5 times by now, but people were too enamored with Barry Bonds's giant cro-magnon head. Pujols still won. Andruw Jones was 2nd in a two-horse race, and received waaaaaay too many votes. Pujols is 25. 25. Remember, he is 25. He should have 4 MVPs already, and could realistically win the MVP for the next 8-10 seasons. This could actually happen. Being as he plays for the Cards and not the Astros, he is a natural enemy, but he is phenominal. He's not a defensive liability and pitchers are truly afraid of him. He also has that glare that intimidates me. He is hitting .332 for his career and already has 201 HRs. Not bad for a 25 year old kid.
