Baseball Players....The Sour:

[from SportsIllustrated.Com 11/30/06]

Albert Pujols thinks he was snubbed. The St. Louis Cardinals' slugger is upset he lost out to Philadelphia's Ryan Howard for the National League MVP award, saying Wednesday the honor should go to someone on a playoff team."I see it this way: Someone who doesn't take his team to the playoffs doesn't deserve to win the MVP," Pujols said in Spanish at a news conference organized by the Dominican Republic's sports ministry.

Yo, loser! The Phillies won three more games than the Cardinals this year. Move over, Burrell, and make room for this sourpuss in the MM Doghouse.

And The Sweet:

[Scott Palmer of The Philadelphia Daily News 11/29/06) talking about Phillies catcher Chris Coste]:

One of the things I'll remember always about this first season was being with Chris in a cab on his first road trip going to Fenway Park and, it was a thunderstorm, and it just came down and actually flooded the dugout. We could see some of our equipment start to float away and we had to go get it. But before we got in, it was raining so hard we couldn't even get out of our cab. And Chris, looking at me, and saying, 'I waited my whole life to play in Fenway Park, and now it's a rainstorm and I can't get in the door.' And I said, 'That's pretty bad, isn't it?" And he said, "You know what, though? I wish that I could run right now. It's Fenway rain, and I would never have to wash my clothes and they wouldn't dry.'

Everybody always says how classy Albert Pujols is, but he really dropped into terminal tackiness with his sour grapes about Howard's MVP. Maybe he'll say it was translated wrong from the Spanish. The Phillies wouldn't have been anywhere near the playoffs without Howard.

He was tacky during the LCS talking about Glavine. He and stinkin' Rolen can go be crybabies together. He makes me like stinkin' Burrell again.

Till the next time ol' Pat comes up with men on second and third, two outs, and three-and-two, and jumps back from a fastball right down the middle.

Well, Stinkin' Burrell actually only had 131 K's, but they were all so painful it seemed like 231!

Well, Anonymous (if that's your real name....), I'm not completely insane - if you plopped Pujols down into the Phillies clubhouse I'd convert him to a left-fielder (because he is NOT going to play first) and be very happy if I never saw Partyin' Pat again.
