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.

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.
