Why no love for Thomas in MVP talk?

I have always like Big Hurt, but he is no way even close to being in the MVP conversation. He has had a good year and should be comeback player of the year for the AL, but he should not be up there with Hafner, Wells and gang for the MVP race.

There is still a month left to go. Don't forget about a guy named swisher who has also been a big reason for oaklands success this year.However he definitely should be up there for comeback player of the year.

Agreed. I've always cheered for big Frank; however, he doesnt belong in this conversation.
Agreed. Thomas doesn't even sniff any of the other front runners. Is this a joke post?

I agree with everybody else. He should definately get the AL comeback player of the year, but no MVP talks. If he had the numbers like Papi for a DH, then definately, but he doesn't.

He's the most essential and necessary to his team, but his #'s just aren't good enough.

Then again, I can remember Kirk Gibson winning the MVP with 25 HR's and 76 Rbis while batting under .300.

If Thomas had a barely below a .300 avg., over 30HRs, 100 RBIs, and more run #s, he would probably be considered, but he just doesn't have the numbers to be considered.

For me, MVP has always stood for Most Valuable Player. It doesn't state anywhere that the award is the most valuable player to his particular team, it's the most valuable player period. Thomas? Shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence with the MVP award as his stat line is definitely less than impressive.

If we're talking Most Valuable Player, it's Ortiz.

If we're talking Most Valuable Player to their respective team, that's a bit tougher, but I'm leaning towards Dye at the moment.
