Pujols getting a big head?

Check out what he had to say in thisarticle:

"I see it this way: Someone who doesn't take his team to the playoffs doesn't deserve to win the MVP," Pujols said in Spanish at a news conference organized by the Dominican Republic's sports ministry.

Which isn't that bad to say, still it's mostly better if others say it, not the person in the running for the award. Here's the clincher though:

Pujols led the Cardinals to the NL Central title this year and their first World Series championship since 1982. Howard and the Phillies missed the playoffs -- though they won two more regular-season games than St. Louis did.

Ha! Sure, St Louis got into the playoffs. OK. Won the World Series even. Fine. But the Phillies, behind Ryan Howard, WON MORE GAMES THAN PUJOLS'S TEAM DID.

I'm not saying Howard should've won, I'm just saying he was probably more valuable to his team than Pujols, by Pujols's own reasoning.

I'm in total agreement. Who would disagree with your point? When I first heard this story I immediately said, "wow, Pujols got a big head pretty darn quickly."
