STLtoday - Redbirds pull it out in the ninth

STLtoday - Redbirds pull it out in the ninth: "Any calculator can reveal the numbers Albert Pujols needs this final weekend of the season to run down his second National League batting title. What it will take for the Cardinals' first baseman to also claim his second NL MVP is less quantifiable.

It's not awarded just for crunching numbers; it's can come from numbers in the crunch. On Friday, he did both until he could do neither."

... There's no reliable barometer when it comes to the MVP.
