I just have a problem giving the comeback player of the year award to some that didn't really comeback until July. If you are going to reward a player for only coming back and being great for part of the year why not give it to Halladay?
Because Halladay hasn't pitched in over two months. Otherwise, he would have been the no-brainer choice for Comeback Player (not to mention Cy). Halladay got hurt, came back and then got hurt again. Giambi, on the other hand, is still playing, and still contributing. If anything, Gambi's early struggles make his comeback more impressive. It was a "midseason comeback."
I'd also take Sexson over Wickman for Comeback Player.
