    If your everyday life seems poor to you, do not accuse it; accuse yourself; tell yourself you are not poet enough to summon up its riches, since for the creator there is no poverty and no poor or unimportant place.

    MVP/E

    With the All-Star break upon us as the symbolic halfway point of the season, I thought it might be an interesting time to look at some of the leading MVP candidates in each league with regard to P/E Averages. Statistics are current through teamsí final games on Sunday, July 13th.
