In response to Beantowne's comment:
MVP:...Cabrera & Posey....hard to argue even in hindsight both led there respective teams to a World Series, both were pretty much a lock since mid Septemeber (with young Trout the only other real serious player to threaten Carbrera in the AL)...Yawn...
Cy Young; IMHO has lost it's appeal given that it's been highjacked by the sabre metric crew...I like the old standard of he who wins the most games wins the award (named after the winningest pitcher of all time). Let the debate begin, but even Hill55 the lord of War won't be able to move me off my position on this one...
ROY; Trout in the AL "that boy's got game" a race that was over by the All Star break....In the NL not even sure I know who did win it or who deserves too? Harper?
Manager of the year; the criteria is the issue always seems to go to the little engine that could vs the guy that did the best job making the most out of what he had and winning a worldseries...where I'm going with this is that IMHO. The guy that wins the WS should by default be the manager of the year.
Case study; Robin Ventura comes off the golf course and the White Sox were in the hunt all year...
An argument could be made: Bob Melvin a two time winner has yet to navigate any team passed the division series. How's he more valued than Bruce Bochte, he of the two rings with the San Francisco Giants both flawed team that played the game right.
Tip of the cap: Though I hate to admit it Buck Sholwalter derserves some love too. The question is can he finish what he's started...History suggest that good things are on the horizon for the Orioles. The problem for Buck is that means he'll be working for the networks when it happens...
How's that for stirring it up Zac?
And he'll always have you to bow down to his wishes. Why would he need his own team's board?
Btw, I'm thinking of going to a Yankee board and telling them I miss one of their biggest trolls and then letting them know they're not discussing the things I want them to. Any advice?
It's a trick question. The answer is see a psychiatrist.
Nice of you to turn a thread on Sox players into what a Yankee fan wants to discuss.
