Or Tejada.

And another vote for Santana as Cy Young.

If Beltran was in the AL still, then based on numbers he might win the MVP. His RC/27 is about the same as Ichiro's too. Both play well in the OF with Beltran having better range and Ichiro having a better arm. Beltran has an edge in speed, going 36-39 in SB's, while Ichiro is 32-42. Not a huge difference, so it could go either way. You'd have to assume the Royals would still be horrible though....... and so are the Mariners.

As for who will win AL MVP :-? one of Manny, Ortiz, Vlad, or Sheff wouldn't surprise me. Sheff isn't as valuable to the Yanks though since without him they'd still be a playoff team. Same can be said about Manny/Ortiz. For that reason, I'd say Vlad for now.

AL Cy Young is gonna be Santana and I don't think there's much to dispute with that. He's been better then everyone by a mile. Schilling has more wins but using wins to rank pitchers is like using R/RBI to judge hitters :-°

Easily Santana in my mind.

On a side note, anyone else notice that Mulder's ERA is near 4, yet some still consider him a top Cy Youg contender? He has fallen off the map for me, while Santana has stamped his name on it.

I've got Mulder and Santana, and it's been no contest for the last six weeks. Mulder's turned into a schmoe over that stretch but has still plucked some wins thanks to massive run support.

I'd say Santana, then Schill, then Mulder.

(Interesting, they could well represent the three division winners ... maybe, of course ;-7)

Schilling has quietly had another stellar season. It was Santana, Mulder for about the last 2 months. Now, I dont even see Mulder in the top 3. I see it as being Johan, Schilling, Pedro.
