Alex Rodriguez wins AL MVP


Recommended Posts

I don't get how Ortiz wasn't 2nd but whatever, 2nd place in MVP voting is pointless.


Because for some reason, most people were under the impression he had a down year.



Production as far as HRs (although homers were down across the board) but the man had probably his best season.


171 OPS+ (A-Rod was at 177)

.445 OBP (Led League, A-Rod was at .422) | 111 BB to 103 Ks

.621 SLG% (3rd in League)


I'm absolutely not saying Ortiz is more deserving than Rodriguez, just that Ortiz was the clear number 2 to me. The fact that he posted a .332/.445/.621 line with a knee that was very bad and required surgery shortly after the season.

There were two voters who voted Magglio Ordonez 1st and A-Rod 2nd.

One was Tom Gage of The Detroit News.

The other, Jim Hawkins, of The Oakland Press in Pontiac, Michigan.


No surprise there.

What's the big deal?
