Top 10 reasons ...
We'll be asking you for your top 10 lists all during the playoffs, and on the eve of Game 1 of the ALDS between the Red Sox and Angels we're kicking off with this question:
Name the top 10 reasons why Manny Ramirez should win the American League MVP over Angels outfielder Vladimir Guerrero. Be serious, funny, clever, or all three, if you can pull it off. Have fun!
Manny should win MVP because he has had more bad hair days than Vlad.

10. Manny is easier to say than Vlad. 9. How many years did it take to COMPLETELY hide that B on the helmet? 8. This is NOT the same Manny as years past. 7. That catch in NY 6. That smile that lights up Fenway. 5. More chances to see the double finger point / denied / double slap man-hugs 4. The hair! 3. His ability to clear the Monster seats with a single swing. 2. He's just a major cog in the personality of this team. 1. He's Manny and he plays for Boston! Nuff said!!!!!

Guerrero has a poor home run handshake.
The #1 reason Manny will win AL MVP: Because Tony Womack plays in the NL. 2. I live in Rockland with a backyard full of chicken wings and land mines (courtesy of my roommate Moxie)....if that doesn't spell MVP for MANNY, I don't know what would. 3. My girlfriend likes Manny....she doesn't know baseball 4. My girlfriend likes Vlad, therefore..... 5. Manny hates baseballs and doesn't like when they get a "free walk" on the grass in fenway. He would much rather put them on the mass pike. 6. Vlad rejected a contract from Detroit, and that alone will be a curse on his performance this series (man I love detroit, hands down my favorite team) 7. Vlad is an Expo at heart, and the Expo's all fwackin stink 8. My dog plays better ball than Vlad 9. Vlad is going to get jumped as soon as he reaches 1st base when I run out of the stands shirtless and kick him in the junk 10. Manny isn't sure it's the playoffs
Frankly, He is just BETTER.......
10.) Manny has played in 152 games this year, isn't that a record or something?! 9.) Manny switched spots in the batting order and STILL is amazing! 8.) Manny's learning from Curt how to pitch, and play the game right (he was reading over his shoulder) 7.) He's having FUN!...have we ever seen him have FUN!? 6.) Along with the other guys, Johnny, Pedro, etc, he's not cutting his hair and that is something else! 5.) Did you see his catch against the A's when he layed it all out? 4.) How about the LEAPING catch in the Bronx...against a team he once said he would like to play for! 3.) Watching how he interacts with OC is SO funny! 2.) How about when he was interviewed last night by Milliar!? And, the number one reason why Manny should be named MVP is... 1.) He's gotten better since the trade of his good friend Nomah ;)
