Howard just passed Schmidt for the Phillies single season record for homeruns w/ 49.

With a month to go.......

if the phillies make the playoffs, ryan howard is your MVP... he may be regardless (beltran/reyes/wright will split the vote, leaving just pujols and howard)

if you look at that lineup... after utley, rollins and howard... they're awful. their pitching sucks, howard is getting protected by the likes of david friggin delluci... and they're right there (all be it because the NL is awful, but still). there is no reason whatsoever to pitch to howard, and he's having an absoloute beastly season.

and with the colapse of the sawks, i'm afraid the AL MVP is gonna go to derek jeter.

Ortiz' health scare and subsequent missed games won't help either. His only hope is the Sox go on a tear, he returns to the lineup and hits 8 more bombs, including 2 or 3 game winners and the Sox at least close the race to 3 games.
Not likley.
Jeter is a fairly worthy candidate, though 12HR's and 83 RBI are weak production. He needs to get to 100 RBI methinks.
If Giambi's Avg was higher than .260 he'd be viable.
Mauer has the same issue as Jeter, poor production though he's hitting .350.
Frankly I think if I had a vote right now I'd give it to Jermaine Dye just because the Red Sox fell out of the race, otherwise Ortiz should have been unanimous.

However, the writers have mostly stated that Arod will win, mostly based on his incredible D, clutch hitting and wonderful attitude.

If Ortiz comes back and has a strong September, I think he still has a shot at winning it whether the Sox do any better or not.

yankee fans are dumb

they boo him even before he gets to the plate. then they boo him for popping out. then when he hits a homerun, they cheer him and demand a curtain call (which he obliged yesterday).

he probably would still have a shot, but if the red sox end the season without getting back into playoff contention i don't think he has a shot.

the sentement for jeter seems to be strong, and if the yankees pull away i think he'll get the nod in a close race with mauer.

NL is a three horse race between beltran, pujols and howard... beltran will be hurt by other mets splitting his vote, pujols will be hurt by the time he missed and the cardinals not exactly lighting things up (all be it still in first place), and howard will be hurt if the phills miss the playoffs.

I don't understand. We traded away veterans who weren't working out, not the nucleus.

So Jeter at .340, 12HR and 83 RBI
and Mauer at .350, 10HR and 73 RBI
will battle out for MVP while Jermaine Dye at .327, 39HR and 106 RBI for a playoff team gets no consideration??

east coast bias

(yes i'm aware that joe mauer isn't on the east coast)

i think dye will be hurt by being in a lineup with konerko and thome, on a team that is considered to be good based mostly on their pitching. not that he's not worthy, i just don't think he'll get the votes.

If Lidle is still in the rotation, you probably win 3 more games. Think about that on Oct 2 if the Fightin' Phils are sittin home while David Wells and the Fattin' Padres are pounding the Mets at Shea having finished just 1 game ahead of the Cheesesteaks.
At least your owner saved some money.(for himself, I doubt he dropped ticket prices after the trade).

And Thome being out of the lineup down the stretch doesn't help him?

i really doubt the padres are able to pound anyone, let alone a team that beat them 5 out of 6 times (and lost the 6th on a play at the plate in the 14th inning).

the padres will be lucky if they get one guy to drive in 80 runs this year... woooooo... willie must be shaking in his boots.

That was the pre-Boomer Padres.
He's got them all on Harley's heading out for burritos and whiskey as a pregame ritual now, big difference.
Fear the Fathers.
