I've seen Quentin mentioned for AL Comeback Player a couple times. Why?

Is everyone picking Hamilton cause they think he will win or cause they think he should win? Cause I think he will win because of the gaudy RBI total but I don't think he is the MVP.

Not the first time this will be an issue to argue over...

One could make the case that Quentin deserves the MVP more because the ChiSox are in first place.
