The View is Much Better When You’re the Lead Dog: Mike Trout Closes in on Another Second-Place MVP Finish

Williams. Musial. Pujols. It looks like Trout is about to join some very exclusive company.

The Decline of Albert Pujols Underscores the Greatness of Frank Thomas

Piling on Phat Albert.

“Frank Thomas was a first-ballot HOFer, but in some respects he might be modestly underrated as a hitter. I suspect it’s because Thomas, like Pujols, endured an extended decline phase that began after his last truly great season (at age 32). But unlike Pujols, Thomas was actually a very good hitter deep into his 30s; Pujols (and the Angels) would kill for this kind of production.”
