Wilbon & Kornheiser discussed the issue of including the postseason when voting for the awards on PTI today. I believe they both thought it was a bad idea.
Manuel got his with the WS ring. I don't think he cares much about the manager of the year.

I officially don't put any faith in the results.
Dale Sveum (Milwaukee) received one vote. He went 7-5 for the year. :eek:

Well, I am biased as a Cardinals fan. But...... Pujols was easily the best hitter in baseball last year. Add in excellent defense at first and solid base running and a level of intensity other players strive for - I don't know how he doesn't win it. But, every year there are several players that are important to their team.

NL MVP to be announced shortly.
I'm guessing Pujols, but there could be some weird voting. Expect Ryan Howard, Manny Ramirez & Lance Berkman to be in the Top 5.
On edit - just heard that Pujols won. More details forthcoming.

The National League's best player has also been named its most valuable.
Albert Pujols' magnificent season earned him his second NL Most Valuable Player Award. Pujols finished ahead of Philadelphia's Ryan Howard, who beat him out by a narrow margin to win the 2006 MVP.
Pujols has finished in the top 10 in the voting in every one of his eight Major League seasons, and has been fourth or better seven times. He is the 11th player to win two NL MVP awards.
As baseball waited to hear the results of the ballot, the discussion centered on the definition of "most valuable." Some argued that because Pujols' Cardinals did not make the postseason, he could not be the most valuable player in the league. It was the only possible case against Pujols, who was indisputably his league's best hitter and who plays Gold Glove-caliber defense at first base.
