Plain and simple, Pujols had a better year. In any other season or year Prince's numbers would have been a sure-shot for MVP because his numbers were so great: 46 Homers, .299 AVG, 141 RBI's. It's awesome, but the fact that he placed fourth in the MVP voting is just pitiful. I can see Pujols and the awesome all-around hitter Hanley Ramirez, but not Ryan Howard! Prince beat him senseless in AVG and most others and tied for RBI's and closely beat him in homers. Since this outrage occurred, I expect all of these numbers and more in the years to come.
