Jason Stark in his piece at ESPN about the NL MVP voting:

• And what happened in those two years when Sir Albert didn't finish in the top three? He came in fourth in one of them and ninth in the other. So he's never had a year in which he didn't show up in the top 10 in the MVP voting. Never. Not one. Musial and Willie Mays also had 10 top-10 finishes in a row once upon a time -- but not in their first 10 seasons.

I'm sure the Angels are happy they drafted Alfredo Amezaga just ahead of Pujols in 1999 (in the 13th round).

Truth be told I think Halladay is the MVP, but most people don't want to hear that about a guy who plays only 260 innings a year.

After that I have trouble distinguishing between the seasons of Votto, Adrian Gonzalez, and Votto. I wouldn't put Ryan Zimmerman too far behind them either. Defensive position matters and he plays a much more important one than the three leading candidates. Tulo would be there too, but for his layoff. I'd put him a solid #5 with room to grow. SS has a significant value in my book.

My vote goes to Votto....and I don't think it should even be that close.

Albert lets his bat remind everyone that he is still the best hitter in the game today!

What a stud!

I'm the biggest Padre (and hence Adrian Gonzalez) fan in the world ... and yes, Adrian deserves MVP consideration ... but I'd still vote for Albert. Wow!

It would be good for him to take the stage and speak out against the AZ immigration law (as he has in the past) and get booed of the stage. That would be very strategic of him and cement him as a great political thinker and leader.

I care. It bothered me that a bunch of Padres in the 80's and 90's were John Birchers. It bothered me that Curt Shilling supported Bush. I become a little bit bigger fan when players appear to have my political leaning (Tampa Bay players showing up at an Obama rally in 2008).

He's going to lose some fans after Saturday. I never understand why people on either side get all that worked up about what an entertainer with little to no political experience has to say about issues, so I don't really care either way.

He's just the best ...

My favorite fun-fact ...

Pujols has fewer strikeouts than Ichiro Suzuki in the same number of seasons, as well as a higher career batting average.

... can that be? Amazing!
