Of course he won it. Duh. Who did we expect to win it? ;-7

Note to guy who wrote that blog:

EqA accounts for his steals too. Just to throw more fuel on the fire. ;-)

He's a great player, no doubt. But I just don't understand the need to force awards on him he simply shouldn't win.

Maybe the do it to bring "recognition" to the fact the award is given in the first place. In the end, they only damage the credibility of the award making it even more insignificant to the public in the future.

I think many people believe that the Hank Aaron Award goes to the 2nd place MVP winner. So, Howard got it in the NL (and he might lose the MVP to Pujols in 2006). AJones lost the MVP to Pujols last year but won the Hank Aaron Award. Pujols lost the MVP to Bonds but won the HAA in 2003. But there are cases where the MVP wins both like Bonds did in 2004 and ARod did in 2003. But it could be that Jeter was given this award mainly because he did not win the MVP in the AL this year.

The ACTUAL RC numbers

1 Jeter 138
2 Ortiz 127

Jeter also leads Ortiz in RC/27

Batting Win Shares
1 Ortiz 29.3
2 Jeter 28

This award is also voted on by the FANS, not the writers, so the idea that its for the 2nd place MVP doesn't make too much sense.

People can find all kinds of numbers to support one guy over another. Here are some numbers that actually support Jeter:

Times on base: 1st
Batting average: 2nd
Runs: 2d
Hits: 3d
On-base percentage: 4th

As a #2 hitter, his job was in that lineup was to get hits and get on base. Nobody got on base more than Derek Jeter did in 2006. The 34 SB's and 97 RBI's are gravy.

I probably wouldn't have voted for him, but it's not like he's a shockingly bad choice.

Agreed! The more I look at what Jeter did this year the more impressed I get. I hate the Yanks and I'm not really a fan of Jeter but he had a very good year!!
