Agreed Thome should win but no love for Mike Lowell?

He's had a pretty decent season after most people completely wrote him off. He should have been on the list, even if it's at the bottom.

As good as Thome's been this year, I'd give my vote to Frank Thomas, because he's been hurt for such a long time.

Same thing for Nomar.

I'm going with Thome. And that's coming from a Tigers fan.

Thome. He has returned to superstar status while Schilling has not.

To me, it's between Thomas and Thome. While Thome clearly has the better numbers, my vote is for Thomas. He was basically left for dead. People were calling for him to retire. Thome was thought of as a great addition for the Sox. Health was an issue for him and he would be able to DH with them. While I think that Thomas is more deserving and would get my vote, I think that Thome gets the award.

And Frank has come out with this type of year when all odds were against him, shows me that he is the comeback player of the year.

I agree!
