Phil Ryken received a top priority phone message during our meeting. Albert Pujols has won the NL MVP award. Phil wants to remind all Phillie fans who think the award should go to Ryan Howard because he led the Phillies into the World Series, that Howard won the award two years ago when Pujols led the Cardinals to the Series, as well. To argue otherwise is vanity and a striving after the wind.

...except that the year the Cardinals won the World Series and Pujols the MVP, the Phillies actually had a better record than the Cardinals who only made the playoffs by being in the weakest division.

This year, the Cardinals finished 4th in their own division, while Howard put his team on his back in September and carried them into the playoffs.

I think the voters just got tired of giving the award to a Phillie every year...

"The year the Cards won the WS and 'Howard' the MVP", that is.
