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.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
