Sweet Justice

Well, I'm sure you've heard, but Albert Pujols is your 2008 NL MVP. He obviously deserved it, but I was a little afraid he'd get jobbed because we didn't make the playoffs. Fortunately, enough people had the sense to realize you shouldn't be win the MVP if you strike-out 200 times in a year (ahem, Ryan Howard). Anyway, I don't have much time today, so I'll leave it at that. It's not a world series win, but it does validate the season somewhat I think. Some food for thought: if Albert didn't play another game, would he be a first ballot hall-of-famer? I think so, he's put up unprecedented numbers up to this point, but I think it's an interesting topic. Hopefully just a theoretical one of course!

P.S. Be on the look out for the 2nd annual Cardinal Blogger awards this week on all the UCB blogs. C70 will be posting the winners I believe on the 21st. John and I will hopefully get around to our votes sometime before then!

I am interested in purchasing one simple text link on your website's homepage. How much would you charge for that?
