Ortiz has a 100 times better case than any of those three: Tejada sucked for the first half--and I mean SUCKED!; Chavez can't hit lefties, still and had a rough first half; and Stewart was with the Blue Jays for the first half, and the move of Santana to the rotation was what propelled that team. Ortiz had so, so many clutch hits the last six months of the season it was silly.
That said, I'd vote for Arod.
Haha, hilarious finish to a good point. Thats a good point though, Jason Stark did say Shannon Stewart is his MVP and yeah,he was a BLUE JAY (a blue jay in the first half, while they still had a shot by the way). Though, I do think we can only say things like this because there really is no clear cut winner in the AL this year. Ortiz has a better shot than Stewart and will get his share of votes. Maybe people outside of Red Sox Nation don't see what we've been seeing every day since July, the ridiculous clutch hitting of a guy that my roomates and I affectionately refer to as "The Monster". (he is very monster-looking, dont you agree?
Again...doubtful he'll win it, but he's MY MVP, i LOVE Ortiz...Sox wouldn't have won a thing without him this year.
and....ahhhhh this is post 666 for me!!!!!
Rest in peace Mitch Hedberg. I name my fantasy team "Buoyancy of Citrus", in your honor.
