Name nine of the ten former MVP's and/or Cy Young award winners that used their middle names (shortened or otherwise) as their first names.

Sorry...I don't do multiple-answer questions. I get the same points for a single-answer question. I could name 8 but the person who names the last wins. Personally, I would discourage multiple-answer questions...but that's just me.:-D

PS - It's just like fantasy baseball...complete with flaws and quirks in the configuration. By the time someone has dug up the answer to this multiple-answer question, I'm rounding third and heading for home with answers to 3 single-answer questions. ;-)

Feel free to 'research' it first, I would also discourage you from thinking 'out loud' so that someone else swoops in and answers the question. However this is probably easier than some other questions out there that are still unanswered.

Zoob, we really dont need to hear your thoughts. if you dont want to answer the question, then ignore it. its ok to keep some thoughts to yourself ;-)

I think it's interesting how some members must have the exact info with all the i's dotted and the t's crossed even if it's a disputed question while others just say..."well, good enuf" %-6

Not sure I understand what you mean, Zoob. The original question asked for nine of ten, which viking named (impressive... :-) ).
