Yesterday’s question and answer: During which decade did the Cardinals have a player win the MVP Award five times? The answer is the 1940’s. Mort Cooper took the award in 1942. Marty Marion won in 1944. Stan Musial won the award in 1943, 1946 and 1948. The Reds actually took six MVP trophies in the 1970s with the Big Red Machine with Johnny Bench winning in 1970 and 1972, Pete Rose in 1973, Joe Morgan in 1975 and 1976 and George Foster in 1977.
