The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

I don't see him getting them either. Ozzie won't risk injuring Thome while Konerko can play there.The Loveable Losers wrote:Old_Style wrote:thome needs 2 more games at 1B to gain eligibility for yahoo leagues
And don't count him out on getting them. It's not likely but if something happened to Konerko that prevented him from playing the field for a few days but wasn't bad enough to keep him from DH'ing then Thome would almost certainly play first base. It's a bit of a long shot but it's not out of the realm of possibility.
