Personally, I think it's far fetched. I think you have to consider the whole season. Without Nomar and Manny contributing early, Ortiz might not have gotten this opportunity. Pedro has been lights out since returning as well. Without that guaranteed win every 5th game, the Sox might not be in the race. I'd be split between 4 players if I had to vote for Boston's MVP, and I don't think any of them have stood out enough to get the AL MVP. Nomar/Manny/Ortiz/Pedro have all made big contributions. I'm not trying to downplay Ortiz because he has done very well and certainly helped the Sox win games, I just don't think he stands out as the AL MVP.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
