I really don't see how Jeter can win it, although he probably will. Yes, his avg. was excellent, he stole a lot of bases, he's a gold glove...but the power numbers aren't there at all.

Morneau really deserves to win it, for taking the Twins from God-awful to division winners in a three month span.

But then I see Howard win it in the NL, and if you go by that, Ortiz should win it in the AL. It's not like the Phillies had that much better of a record than the Red Sox, even though they were in it longer.

I think for one year, he'll still be a valuable asset for the Mets. He can still hit.

He's younger than Julio Franco.

If Jeter doesn't win then Ortiz should get it. Even if he was the DH, Ortiz was still the MVP for the Red Sox. Without him, they would've been below .500. Even though I can't stand the BoSox, Ortiz kept them in contention.

Of course he really didn't deserve the Gold Glove either.
Michael Young or AGonz deserved it.

I mean he's supposedly tagging Jessica Biel now (its just a front, he's really tagging ARod), what more does he deserve.

it's a no lose situation because it's only a 1 year deal. he'll be splitting a lot of time with endy chavez as well, so they don't need him to play 150+ games, and when you look at the contracts being given out to soriano, sheffield and offered to lee and drew, then yea... i'm quite happy with alou. spend the money on starting pitching... the lineup is fine as it is anyways.

i'd also like to see them upgrade their bench... franco stopped prdoucing after, oh, april.

I can't believe some asswipe actually typed that Jeter was "tagging" A-rod. How fuckin' lame is that? Let's get back to baseball and leave the gay jokes somewhere else. Preferably next to Micheal Richards' career.

Justin Morneau won the AL MVP.

As much as I personally wish Ortiz could have gotten it, this choice makes sense.

I believe I stated my case for Morneau in the MLB thread at the end of the regular season.
Glad he got it.
I knew Ortiz wouldn't because the Sox fell so far out of contention even though he had the best numbers of anyone, but we know you have to be on a winner to get the MVP.

Post from the MLB Menage a Trois (I hope that doesn't offend anyone) thread on Sept 25:

Your 2006 AL MVP, Justin Morneau...Current stats
.323 Average (5th in league, .16 points behind Jeets)
33 HR (11th in league, 19 more than Jeets)
126 RBI (2nd in league, 30 more than Jeets)
