Albert Pujols, winner, winner, winner...

... and the hits keep coming, courtesy of one Albert Pujols. There's not much argument out there about his latest selection, described by Derrick Goold, who blogs the birds for the St. Louis Post Dispatch's online version, STLtoday.

Bird Land » Blog Archive » Albert Pujols named Player of the Year: "Pujols edged LA Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez and Cleveland pitcher Cliff Lee for the award, which is based on a vote of his peers, fellow members of the players’ union. The award punctuates a week of accolades for the Cardinals’ first baseman and leading candidate for the NL MVP. Earlier, Pujols was honored with the Players Choice Award for NL Outstanding Player and Sporting News selected him as its Player of the Year. Both honors were based on votes of players."
