Man Ram for MVP?

Postby kemper5 » Wed Aug 09, 2006 11:47 pm

He's been overshawdowed by the great Papi, however you cannot ignore the .322 ave, 32 HR, 91 RBI and much improved Defense.. With a solid Aug & Sept.. He could snag it from Papi.. On pace for a .320, 40+ HR, 120+ RBI season.. Nice ;-D

Even if he has a better OPS, RC, or anything like that he won't have a shot over Ortiz. Not that I agree with that, but it's the sad truth.

Even is he does get more votes than Papi I think they'll sorta cancel each other out.

Unless he picks it up in the hr department I don't see it happening unless Papi slows down for some odd reason.

HR totals have the greatest influence on determining the MVP. Unless Manny goes on a HR tear and Papi drops off then I can't see how Manny could win it.

Am I the only guy that thinks if Manny moved to 3rd and Papi to 4th that Manny would be just as good as he is now, maybe better, and Papi would be worse?

It'd be interesting for sure, but if it ain't broke...

Yes because Ortiz would get walked a lot more without Manny protecting him.

I think Ortiz and Manny will cancel each other out. Knowing the writers in this country, Jeter will probably win an undeserved MVP.

Manny IS a slightly better hitter than Ortiz, but not nearly as likeable.
