Just because you went to college for four years to learn how to write doesn't mean you have the knowledge to say who the best ball player is. Ugh.

The thing is, it's not that hard to determine who the best players were.

Pedroia isn't even the MVP of the Red Sox. Where the hell is Sizemore? He didn't even list him in the "Thanks for playing" section. Seriously? Hanley missing from the top 10 of the NL? But Manny/Sabathia are 3 and 4? Yet somehow Sabathia doesn't make his top 3 for Cy? :-?

Better than Heyman's, sure, but that's not saying much. I can't believe they're paid to print this. :-S

Yeah, Pedroia is definitely the one :-?

AL MVP is a bit tricky though, especially now that MIN didn't make the playoffs.

Here's one definition of an MVP: Toward season's end in Tampa Bay, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire wanted to get Joe Mauer out from behind the plate and was considering slotting the catcher as the designated hitter. He asked Morneau, who started every game this year, if he needed a rest or if he was good to go at first base. Morneau's answer: "Whatever is going to keep Joe Mauer in the lineup." Morneau played first that day.


I can't stop laughing at this.
