Does this look like an MVP? Somehow, the bushleague thirdbaseman for the pinheads in pinstripes was voted the AL MVP today. I guess the voters just don't understand that MVP means the most VALUABLE player. When your teams up by 9 or 10 runs, he's the guy you want at the plate, but when the games on the line, you can count on him to ground into a double play (check out the last play of the Yankees season). On the other hand, they could have picked the most clutch player that I've ever seen. Now, granted, I'm not that old, but I've never seen a player perform in the clutch like the Big Papi. Granted, he only played a few games of defense and Arod had a decent year in the field (4th in the AL in fielding percentage). I guess I just see value a little differently than the experts. Well, my MVP is Papi, the people's MVP. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go stair at the Monday Night Football game with a pouty look on my face.

I'm with you, brother. It's a dark and gloomy day in the Red Sox Nation. Valuable is the key word. Here's a quote from Mr. Rodriguez today: "I would certainly trade his [Big Papi] World Series championship for this MVP trophy. That just goes to show the lack of appreciation and respect he has for this stellar award.
A terrible injustice has occurred today, my friends, just terrible. Keep your head high, Papi, as you are truly, by definition, the Most Valuable Player of the Year.
Go Sox!
