No. Miggy will sign with someone, but he's going to get a lot less than he thinks he's worth.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Without Oakands big 3, Tejada doesnt come close to mvp. He had a nice year, but it was Arods award far and away.

well, i think one of the reasons a rod wasnt picked was because in texas, the offense is everything. its all they got. last year, they had raffy and juan gone hitting bombs all over the place so arod fit right in and hit 57 of his own but in oakland, there isnt much of a offense, its more of plate discipline and walking and getting on base and miggy did just that and more by getting game winning hits and showing emotion and bringing life back to baseball. arod had a better year but it could have gone either way. arod deserved it though because its 57 frickin homers, thats alot for a ss these days. but hes yet to be the best ss of all time. he needs a few more years before he passes honus in my mind.
