Actually for almost the entire year Ortiz was batting BEFORE Manny not the other way around. It's only recently that they switched it around. Ortiz has a ton of RBI's because he has had a ton of opportunities. Manny could and and would have had even better numbers this year, say 140-150 rbis if the roles had been reversed and Ortiz hadn't constantly cleared the bases before he came up AND he had Ortiz for protection instead of the other way around. Ortiz is a monster hitter there is no doubt but what Manny has done this year-ALL year-consistently-makes him the easy MVP choice for me especially since his best competition, Vlad, is on a team that lets face it will not make the playoffs. Sheff could sneak in though. Let's see who wins the AL East.
