How can anyone consider Orditz an MVP without playing defensivly if he gets the nod shame on the game of baseball.

I assume you mean David Ortiz? I agree, they need a special award for DHs because Ortiz is incredibly clutch. But guys that play both sides of the game are fatigued far more than a a DH in the stretch. That has to negatively affect their offensive production.

It can be done, but you better have some dominating stats on a playoff type team and right now Boston Sucks.

I thought Ortiz had a big lead in the MVP but now it's super close, if the MVP was decided fairly which it isn't I think Jeter, Dye, Ortiz, Morneau, and Hafner would be candidates.

If the Yanks win the division I think Jeter get's it....

If I could pick one player to get me a hit in the clutch it would definately be Jeter plus his glove is totally awesome.

being a Twins fan first, and the yanks 2nd--- how can you honestly say that Jeter is a better MVP than Mauer???? Mauer is hitting like .20-25 points higher--- roughly same #'s of HR's and RBI's, and Mauer has done it in less AB's. Both are excellent at their postions, but Joe plays a much more demanding Pos,, (when was the last time a C lead the league in batting???) Jeter has him in steals-- but Mauer has him in strikouts and OBP. Mauer has Morneau batting 2 after, Jeter has about $180 million worth of South American teak batting all around him. Not even close--- Mauer over Jeter and get this east coast bias straightened out.

I wish Mauer would win the MVP..... but considering he's not even our team MVP and has ZERO chance of finishing ahead of Jeter in the MVP balloting I think it's a moot point.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true
