He never should have even won his first MVP award. Mauer was worth way more to his team than Morneau. Way way more. Mauer had a higher OPS, played a much tougher defensive position, and played it exceptionally well.
True..True..I like Mauer too, but Mauer did not go out 162 games and go 34 HR, 130 RBI, 190 Hit's, 97 Runs and a nice .321 Ave, Morneau was absolutely clutch that year and drove in the teamates to get the Twins the W's and to the playoffs and trumping Mauer in almost everything but Ave..That year Morneau hit .348 in Sept and Oct and .410 in July..He carried them into the playoffs on fire like a MVP should..Justin was to the Twins that season what Matt Holliday was to the Rockies in 07' down the stretch..In the playoffs that year..Morneau 5 for 12, scored almost 1/2 their runs and had 2 HR's in 3 games..Mauer when it counted.. 2 for 11 and no HR's..no RBI's
