.300+/30+/100+ nine years straight. Three MVP's. Countless other hitting awards. Yet, apperently Ryan Howard and Prince Fielder are better then Albert Pujols.

Ryan howard and Prince can each hit 30 homers and 100 RBI. On the other hand they cannot hit .300. They strikeout countless times.(Pujols barley ever strikes out). There is no comparison there. None. Howard has a few hitting awards yes, nothing like Pujols. If Howard had been around since 2001 he would probably be very close to Pujols I agree, but he hasn't, and he isn't.

This article is basically a call for someone to sit down and write me a good long explanation on why Howard and Fielder are evidently all of a sudden better then Pujols. I don't want any your biased comments twords me, or anyone else, I want a clear cut answer.

Where can I comment?
