;-D I though Vlad should win it but I'm surprised Manny was 3rd.

No surprise here. Vlad is the best player in the game bar none (including Bonds).

It's people like you that spawn the warnings on hairdryers that say "Do not use in the shower".

Thats just uncalled for.

Anyway, how is Bonds in the field? Certainly that matters when a player is claimed to be the best PLAYER in the game and not just hitter.

Vlad, Pujols, and Alex are just three players I'd rather have on my team than Barry

That's an overstatement. Manny's a better hitter, for one. But for everything together, I'd probably take Arod, if he's not in NY. :)

And, no surprise here. I thought Manny should have won it, but it seems Vlad's last two weeks carried the day. But as a wiseman I know said, if Vlad had Manny's OBP for the whole season, he probably wouldn't have needed to hit all those homeruns to make the playoffs.

Anyway, congrats.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

I'm still sticking with Pudge, but of the three with a shot he was my choice, hands down.

Bonds is probably below average in the field, but would you rather have:

A) a .400 OBP, 1.000 OPS, and a good fielder
B) a .600 OBP, 1.400 OPSand a below-average fielder.

Remember, .400-1.000 is good, but .600-1.400 is godly. Insane. Out of this world.

I'd rather have Bonds than anyone right now.

The AL MVP was not that big of a deal to me. I hadn't made a decision, and therefore it didn't matter as much.
