El Hombre, no. 2

[For El Hombre, no. 1, see here]

For Cardinals fans, the season was not a complete loss (after all, the Cubs lost in the first round of the playoffs). In addition, Albert is collecting postseason awards: Sporting News' Player of the Year and MLBPA's NL Outstanding Player. Surely he is set up to win his second NL MVP this season.

Would certainly seem like Albert should win the MVP - one of the most telling stats I saw comparing Albert and Ryan Howard was their BA. against certian pitchers.

Against, pitchers with a low ERA Albert hit close to .350 - imagine that. On the other hand Howard hit a very dissapointing .200 or something like that.

Howard cleaned up against poor hitting, which has been evident in his recent (up until the WS) playoff slump.
