Here’s Joey Votto, talking yesterday about how he stacked up against Albert Pujols after beating him out for the MVP award:
“I said, ‘Holy cow. He beat me in a lot of them.’ He beat me in runs, RBIs and home runs and a couple others. I had a better batting average, but we all kind of know that that’s an over-rated statistic. I was a pretty efficient player. I think I had the highest on-base percentage in baseball and led tine National League in slugging.”
The bullies are at it again. Or maybe the trendsetters. Could be either, really. That or the communists.
