Ryan Howard seems like a good guy and a nice story, Missouri kid and all. Sure was fun watching him mash moon shots in the HR Derby and know (well, hope) he's clean of artificial enhancements that would shrivel his testicles. In many seasons, his offensive numbers would be good enough for MVP. But not this year.
I imitated Lou and did some research. Howard had 9 more HR and 12 more RBI than Pujols. And that, folks, apparently won him the award. Never mind that Albert scored 15 more runs, stole 7 more bases, batted 18 points higher, and struck out 131(!) fewer times. THESE are the stats that show Albert clearly got shafted:
Howard with RISP: 164 AB, .256 AVG, .518 SLG, 12 HR, 83 RBI, 56 SO
Pujols with RISP: 126 AB, .397 AVG, .802 SLG, 14 HR, 88 RBI, 10 SOThe disparity is stunning. If Albert had had as many ABs with RISP as Howard (just imagine Utley hitting in front of Pujols all season), he clearly would have won the RBI crown. And yet because he still might have been a few homers shy, not playing 81 games in Citizens Bank Bandbox, the myopic BBWAA voters might still have blown it. Chicks, and the media, dig the long ball.
Oh yeah, and there's that Gold Glove thing.

The American people have given the Democrats an opportunity to take this country in a new direction. I hope they don't fritter away this opportunity amid scandal and hypocrisy as the House Republicans have done for the last twelve years.

"I just presumed that what I considered to be the most competent national security team since Truman was indeed going to be competent," Mr Adelman said.
"They turned out to be among the most incompetent teams in the postwar era. Not only did each of them, individually, have enormous flaws, but together they were deadly, dysfunctional."

If you vote in a place that has a electronic voting machines ask them for paper confirmation. Ask them if they have the source codes for their machines. See what they say. In the future, we will discover that elections have been fixed with these devices.
