Vlad's last two weeks won him the award, but winning this way is not unprecedented. When Chipper won in 1999 he had not made the All-Star game that year.

This and NL Cy were the closest races, and I can't argue either.


Same here. The only one's I really had any issue with were NL Cy and AL MVP, but both winners were more than deserving.

No complaints here. ;-D

Have to admit that I'm surprised Sheff finished ahead of Manny though. :-?

Vlad wins as I expected. No compliants from me. He deserved it. No suprises here. All the people that I thought would win, won. THe only one I dont agree with is NL Cy Young. To me its Randy. I know there have been many debates about this.

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

While rude, I think that is the second funniest thing I've ever read on this site.

:-D


Dare I ask what the #1 spot is? :D

In the Battle of the Fruits, a guy mentioned that he couldn't wait to vote his favorite - cherries - through to the next round. To that, Pomplona's Finest said:

If you take it out of context, it's the funniest thing I've ever read on here. I had it as my sig for a while until I put my foot in my mouth (see below).

My current sig might just rank up there with some of the most ironic statements ever made.


yeah. i remember that it was your sig for some time. lol.

well, vlad wins ;-D

this year was less controversial than last year's awards IMO ;-)

Fat Boy...I mean fat guy...whatever fat is the key
Remember this is a Fantasy Baseball thread. When you look across the board I defy you to show me how Bonds is a better pick than Vlad when you are picking in the 1st round. As far as the hairdryer comment goes at least I can dry of with one towel - it seems like you would need a few.

By the way with your superior skills how many leagues did you win this year? I won 13 of 20 without Bonds in a single league

This thread seems destined for a nice, shiny padlock doesn't it?

I guess that all depends on what kind of league you play in. I play in points leagues, and the two I played in last year each used the same scoring system for hitters. In each, Bonds outscored Vlad 725 to 597. Now, I don't know how categorical scoring would apply here, but at least from the point aspect of the fantasy world, Bonds still murders Vlad.

I realize that this is a fantasy baseball site but when you say Vlad is the best in the game. Most people interpret "game" as MLB not fantasy baseball especially when the thread is about the MVP. Seems like a miscommunication.

Pogo is correct. Best fantasy player, and best in the game are two completely different things. ;-)

Either him or Manny would've been fine. Good for Vlad.
