    [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.

    Really? When you're 2nd in HRs (34), lead the league in RBIs (97), and Runs Scored (113, the guy who's 2nd has 90!). That's not what Gammons thinks.

    Here's guessing the uniform has something to do with it.

    [QUOTE]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.
    Posted by BostonTrollSpanker[/QUOTE]

    You mean like Teixeira & Cano? I'm not a stickler for awards either, and still think the MVP is AGon, FWIW, but are you telling me many RS fans don't care about this, when convenient? Give me a break. This stereotype falls flat.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Curtis Granderson will be the AL MVP : 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.

    Posted by Mikeyinthebronx2[/QUOTE]
    Many knowledgeable and mature Yankee fans could care less whether Granderson is named the AL MVP in 2011.  He has been the one position player on the 2011 roster who has had a "career year."  So what?  Unto itself that does not warrant an MVP Award on a team loaded with outstanding players. 

    Yankee players have been named Most Valuable Player 20 times and it's interesting that the first, Ruth, and the most recent, Rodriguez, were not home grown or "real Yankees" by definition.  All of the others were.  The St. Louis Cardinals not surprisingly are the 2d most decorated team in MLB history with with 19 MVP's.  The Boston Red Sox who are essentially an average franchise (middle of the pack) among the original 16 teams) historically have a total of 11 MVP's, one of whom was a former Yankee (Jackie Jensen) and the other of whom was the equivalent of a free agent (Jimmie Foxx), but was a guy the owner bought for cash like Ruth and A Rod.  It's largely irrelevant whether or not Granderson wins an MVP Award or he does not.  Most long time fans could care less about individual awards in a team sport.

    If the Red Sox win the division A-Gon or Ellsbury deserve it, if the Yankees win Granderson deserves it. Pedroia and Cano both have been really hot since the ASB too, should be fun the next month.

    As I have said many times over, Granderson is having a fine year.   But he is not the MVP.   I will conceed that if Gonzo continues his slump much longer he will be out of the running.   He has his swing back ... so we shall see.

    Not to nitpick, but Babe Ruth never won an MVP - he won a League Award, which was voted by players and coaches and had different rules.  I'm sure he would have won an MVP, but that award didn't start until 1931.  Also, Roger Maris (who won 2) was not a 'home grown' Yankee.
