More Pujols Love
For those of you who still might think that Ryan Howard should have been the NL MVP last year instead of Albert Pujols, look at a mock fantasy draft by fantasy experts on ESPN.com. Albert went number one overall, Ryan Howard was picked number 22. The next Cardinal drafted in this league was Ryan Ludwick at 57. Ryan Howard was actually the third Phillie picked. Jimmy Rollins was picked 8th and Chase Utley was picked 11th. I know that fantasy geeks are not good gauges of the true MVP, but it should show you who stat geeks value above others. It also shows you that Howard had far more help in that lineup (and we haven't even mentioned an injured Pat Burrell) than Pujols. Anyway, that is my HOT SPORTS OPINION!
