The Jury wrote:So I pick Giambi for keeping his team in first place when the bullpen sucked, when Bernie was out, when Soriano struggled, and when Jeter was out.
Jason Giambi for AL MVP.
HUH?????? He kept the team in first place while Jeter was out?
April: .204, 5 HRs, 15 Rs, 16 RBIs
May: .260, 6 HRs, 10 Rs, 16 RBIs
Sure, in June he hit .373 with 11 HRs, but his average has dropped again, .247 in July, .279 in August.
The Yankees pitching, especially Mussina at the begining of the year, has kept their team in first place. Not certainly a .267 hitter.
I'm back. Sorta.
Do not boo Johnny.
