Our good friend Mike Berardino...

He picked Lee as part of his personal attacks on the Marlins. I wouldn't have been surprised if he picked Pudge for AL MVP and Redman for AL Cy Young. Berardino's a joke, a writer who seemingly has a personal vendetta against a team he gets paid to cover.

Mike Berardino works for the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel is owned by the Chicago Tribune Company.

The Chicago Cubs are also owned by the Chicago Tribune Company.

Berardino broke journalism's number one rule and that is disclosure of possible bias. He never said what I just posted above so he is automatically discredited in my mind. Full disclosure is not his thing, so I don't read or believe him.

dude, you say that every time there is either an anti-marlins or pro-cubs article on the sentinel.

 

i can assure you the tribune company has no hand in telling its non-chicago newspapers to oppose their local teams or to beef up the cubs. that's preposterous.

 

the sports writers who work for the LA times and the baltimore sun don't have some secret conspiracy against their home teams or some secret allegiance toward the cubs... any bias you read in berardino's articles is injected solely by him and has nothing to do with what company owns his newspaper.

He's just trying to make an outlandish pick so in the .000001% D Lee wins it he can be like "I know everything about sports all bow down to me" or something similar

that's a good point.

 

if a sportswriter goes the traditional route and picks someone like bonds or pujols, nobody cares if he's correct.

I'm not sure why picking the Phillies #1 and the Marlins #2 is anything terrible. Picking Lee as NL MVP is a little far-fetched, I mean Derek could hit a lot of homers but he's a .270 hitter.

 

And I agree alkazoid, Berardino doesn't need to mention the Tribune... his bias is personal, and he's not required to provide disclaimers about the Sentinel being owned by the Tribune every time he makes a statement anyway.

Lee for MVP is legit, people.

honestly Josh, lay off the peace pipe Didn't Preston lead the NL in RBI when he left PPS? Wasn't he an MVP candidate?

 

Why not Derrek, who is a much better hitter than Preston IMO? I dont really think anyone ever said Preston was an MVP candidate

 

Helton's numbers were just as good(except rbi), so I think he had a better year

 

Will Derrek have a good year? probably so...... but he will not win the MVP and if he does, I will eat my shoe

write it down

preston was #16 with 12 points.

 

he got one 7th, one 8th, two 9th, and one 10th place votes. i wouldn't really consider that a real candidate.

 

helton (75 pts) mopped the floor with him.

 

even JP (39 pts) and mike lowell (30 pts) kicked his ass in MVP voting.

 

DLee isn't moving to Coors for crissakes... he'll do well as a cub but he's no MVP, especially when he's got sosa and prior on his team.

D Lee is a good ball player but not a great ball player. When is time to hit in clutch more times than not he does not come through. You know everybody is thinking that Lee is going to have a great year because he is going to be playing at Wrigley but all you people forget that pitchers will adjust and pitch him more inside were he is not going to be able to extent his arms and he the ball out to right center. Pitchers not only pitch you according to your weakness but also to the park they are pitching. I think by the end of season Lee will probably still be between 25 - 30 HRs and 80 - 100 RBIs with a .270 AVE typical for D Lee not bad but not the superstar everybody is making him out to be. I think that offensibly the CUBS are going to miss K Lofton he was a great spark plug for them setting the table for middle of order hitters.
