    [QUOTE]No he isn't a team player ... that's why the Yanks lost all those games to the Sox.  Your boys swing for the fences, the Sox just have to pitch to prevent home runs.  And your guys, after losing 10 games, still haven't caught on.  Because that is all Granderson does.  Gonzo will hit a single or whatever just to get a run in.  granderson can't do that, he is just not that good a hitter.   His BA is 70 points lower than Gonzos, and Gonzo is in a slump.  Granderson is just not that good.  And babe, I said 40+ years ... thanks for proving my point.  And Granderson can come in second like Howard did, again, thanks for proving my point.

    And your "Ace", the guy all you Yankee trolls said was the sure Cy Young winner, is 0-4 against the Sox.   Guess he is bordeline Burnett.  At least against the Sox and their inferior team.

    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.

    When is the last time someone lead the league in RBI's, runs scored and quite possibly HR's and not win the MVP?

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Curtis Granderson will be the AL MVP : Who are those 2 guys?  Phil Hughes?  A guy that has yet to prove that he's a good starter in this league.  You know that.  Bartolo Colon only missed like a month and I wouldn't say he's had a better season than either Beckett or Lester.  You know that.  The Sox have missed a borderline ace-caliber pitcher for most of the season in Buchholz.  That has easily accounted for 5 fewer wins.

    Posted by SoxPatsCelts1988[/QUOTE]

    Well, before his stint on the DL Colon was certainly pitching better than buch, and now Garcia is on the DL and he has also pitched better than buch.

    And whether you hate him or not, Hughes is looking a lot better in his more recent starts.

    Leads the AL right now in runs and rbi's, which boggles the mind.  If he can keep that up, he is a shoo-in, regardless of any defensive metrics.

    CG and AGon are both way up there in the mix.  There is still plenty of ball to play, and there is no sense trying to nail it down this early.
    IMO, the MVP has to go to a player on a contending team, and that player had to have made substantial contributions to getting the team there.  When ARod won it on a last place team, I always wondered how valuable he could have been, since the team could certainly have gotten to last place with him or without him.

    As a Yankee fan, at this stage, I think AGon is more valuable to the Sox than CG is to the Yanks, but it is close.

    I'm surprised Colon and CC, with those chins hanging to their waistlines, aren't on the DL permanently. It's scary how huge those guys are. Very unhealthy!

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Curtis Granderson will be the AL MVP : But they have won with lower batting averages before. Not to mention, Dawson won the award in 1987 with a .287 while having lower OB% and SLG% than Granderson does now. So it's not like it's not possible.
    Posted by />.TheBabe.<[/QUOTE]

    True Babe, but back then the voters didn't even use some of the sabermetrics they're in love with now.  In that era, power numbers stood out and I can't quite recall who Dawson's biggest challenger was for the MVP (happens at my age - lol :)).  While I think Granderson is ahead of the pack so far, there's alot of year left.  MVP's have been won by folks with incredible Septembers.  Also, I'd much rather have AGON, Ells, or Pedey (heck, any Sox player) win the WS MVP.

    Granderson has a very good shot at MVP becauase no one on the Yanks team has played anywhere near as well as him, the rest have not stepped up. On the Sox, Ellsbury will split votes with Gonzalez and maybe Pedroia, thus giving the vote to Granderson. I care more about how wins in the postseason so Granderson can have the MVP and may the Yankees trolls hearts beat with misplaced pride.

    I honestly don't care about the MVP, if you and SPC will feel better about your singles hitting, non RBI producing, non home run hitting first baseman to win the award than so be it.  I mean so what if AGon got the vast majority of HR's and RBI's in the first half....it is the value of those few RBI's that he has produced here in the 2nd half.  Granted he has rarely driven in a run here in the 2nd half but the runs he drove in were so important!  Guys often win the MVP limping across the line...Babe you should just let it go, they're right!
