Ryan Howard Beats Albert for MVP

Ryan Howard has been named NL MVP for 2006, just edging out El Hombre.  Congratulations to Ryan on an amazing season!  He is from St. Louis after all, so we don’t need to be bitter. 

Of course I would have voted for Albert because I know from watching the Cardinals everyday the impact he has on this team and the way he can change a game. It’s not just his bat but his stellar defense, aggressive baserunning, and leadership on and off the field.  I haven’t watched Howard enough to compare.  Howard’s numbers were a bit better in most areas, but then Albert missed about a month due to injury, too. 

Anyway, if Albert gets depressed about this, he can just look at his World Series ring to cheer up.
