2005 MVP



Congratulations to Alex Rodriguez on Winning the American League Most Valuable Player Award

Despite the fact that he's not even the MVP of his own team, he really did have a great regular season and just seemed infinitely more comfortable in New York (until October, that is). Mariano Rivera was undoubtedly the most valuable, but between A-Rod and Big Papi, I'm very happy that the writers used a little common sense this time and overlooked the fact that Alex Rodriguez is a Yankee. No offense to David Ortiz (and, for the record, give me Papi in a clutch situation any day over Alex...) but the numbers were just too similar for A-Rod's gold-glove worthy defense to be overlooked on top of the better batting average and nearly identical offensive numbers. What we need to do now is figure out why the hell the man chokes come playoff time. The 9th inning, Game 5 Double Play comes to mind immediately, but the whole series turned when he misplayed that ball in the field during Game 2 that led to a Yankees loss. But enough of the negative...Alex Rodriguez is the first Yankees third baseman ever to win the award and the first Yankee player since Don Mattingly won in 1985. I really am happy for him. I'd be happier if they were handing him a World Series MVP Award instead, but, once again, I digress. Congratulations, A-Rod!

Thank you for weighing-in... Why not learn how to spell before posting, though, you're just feeding into the "Stupid, Ignorant Red Sox Fan" stereotype and I'd hate for you to label yourself!
