Ok, so the Marlins aren't in anyone's predictions. No Marlins player is in anyone's prediction. And can someone tell me how the f*** Troy Tulowitzki gets so many votes for MVP and Hanley gets none? Is it now consensus among clueless analysts that this guy is a better player than Hanley?

One of the ESPN commentators on the Yankee-Tigers game showed some love (albeit very briefly) for the Marlins. When talking about the rise of Atlanta, he said "When are people going to start talking about Florida? They're my team."

 

Was that Aaron Boone? Heh

Well, he's finished in the top 5 in MVP voting each of the least two years, and he's a gold glove defender.
