In Response to Re: Curtis Granderson will be the AL MVP
[QUOTE]Just to clarify a small point. Granderson is hitting .281 and trending upward beautifully since the break.Terrible, we know. Reasonable Sox posters (of whom there are many who we all enjoy reading),please look away.Why all the fooling around on who wins the MVP or the Cy Young? It misses the point on a forum that is only about one upsmanship--mine is better than yours. This is all further aggravated by some in RSN frustrated that they're even in this godawful position
to begin with their early expectations so high for the Sox---looking up in the standings at the EE in late August, the 50 HR season for Agon turning into a look alike contest with Casey Kotchman, etc.---and let's say, some other issues. Back to "mine is better than yours" specifically for the soxmeisters, SPCs, slomags, andrewmitches, and UConns in the crowd----Granderson is putting up better #s across the board than any Sox player. Let's try that another way--statistically, Granderson is a more complete player than anyone on the Sox and has the #s to prove it. And the Yankees wake up today in first place and with the best offense in baseball. Should Grandy win the MVP? Who cares, soxmeister? Mine is better than yours.

Don't lump my name in that group. I stated that Granderson is the MVP as of right now."they're even in this godawful position"
- Um, what godawful position is that? A half game back? The Sox 10-2 vs. the EE so far this season? Is that really a "godawful position"? I'm waiting for you to bust out that the Yanks have done it without A-Rod for the past few months yet fail to recognize that the Red Sox have done it without Buchholz, a borderline ace. That would be a typical Yankee homer reaction.
Yeah AGon doesn't have 50 HR, but nobody saw him hitting .340. Plus his RBI numbers are still very high and many believe his power is down because he's battling through a shoulder injury. To compare him to Casey Kotchman is laughable.
You're one of the elite yankee trolls/homers on this forum and a post like that just adds to your list of garbage.
