Here’s Joey Votto, talking yesterday about how he stacked up against Albert Pujols after beating him out for the MVP award:

“I said, ‘Holy cow. He beat me in a lot of them.’ He beat me in runs, RBIs and home runs and a couple others. I had a better batting average, but we all kind of know that that’s an over-rated statistic. I was a pretty efficient player. I think I had the highest on-base percentage in baseball  and led tine National League in slugging.”

The bullies are at it again.  Or maybe the trendsetters. Could be either, really. That or the communists.

    It’s all Nixon’s fault for taking us off the gold standard.

    Communists were just trendsetting bullies, weren’t they?

      Communism’s just a red herring.

        Please tell me that was a “Clue” reference. Because that is one of my life’s all-time guilty pleasures.

        @Craig that was *absolutely* a “Clue” reference :p

    Before we sabermetric fans start patting ourselves on the back so much that we cough up blood, let’s remember who won the American League Gold Glove at shortstop.

      Won? Or got?

      I guess managers are just less susceptible to bullying.

        Of course, because all of them Played the Game. So they are automatically right about all baseball arguments.
