    Well deserved demonstrated to a lot of people, myself included, that things may not always be as they appear.

    Well deserved. I would think that the Sox collapse  , while certainly not his fault , would kill any shot he had at MVP. Will probably finish in the top three.  Silver Slugger and Golden Glove awards are very possible.  All in all, a great season.

    Easy award to win. Just tank an entire season with a micro-fracture ribs and then return and try and pull every fastball you get in front of Pedroia and AGon. Never hit the padded walls, play the ball of of it, play deep in CF and never dive for anything.

    Pity the team that pays this guys FA years.

     I'm amazed that he had the kind of year he had seeing that he was playing on a team that had a # of guys who had backstabbed him last year.

    Besides Youk, who complained about Ellsbury last year?

     Youk went public with his criticisms. It has been reported by Boston media that other players criticized him, but didn't want their names used for attribution.
