We're sorry to pick on him โ€” really! โ€” but we feel obliged to point out that in his new More Cowbell column, which looks at the American League MVP race, our boy Bill says the National League race โ€” a league that Simmons full confesses to "knowing nothing about" โ€” "can be summed up in one word: Pujols." (We assume he means Albert; when it comes to the NL, you can never be too sure of Bill's ignorance.) Of course, the talk all year has been of Cubs first baseman Derrek Lee's run for the Triple Crown. We have a feeling Bill legitimately hasn't noticed. Of course, if we were hanging out with Jeffrey Ross and "Jimmy" at the Pam Anderson Roast, we might have missed some stuff too.
