Let me be the first to say, "Bullshit"

stanky... you beat me to it.

This was a total KNEE-JERK reaction from 85year old morons who think that the "DH" is a blight on baseball.

Hate the game not the player...

Geezers.

Well, I was wrong...overestimating the baseball establishment was pretty stupid of me.
Over at XM they were interviewing Mo Vaughn,which got me thinking: an offensive player who is a BAD position player (I thought Mo was the worst at firts since Dick Stuart) is considered "more valuable" than a DH. That's just nonsenese. Would flipping Millar and Ortiz have made any real difference in the team? But would it have gotten Ortiz the votes he needed to beat "Slappy?" I think so, and that's terrible logic.

At least ARod is a deserving recipient, unlike Colon.

Even as a Yankee fan I thought Ortiz deserved it but as Jack Marshall said, at least A-Rod was a deserving recipient unlike Colin in the Cy Young voting, that was total bs!

I don't know if anyone saw this, but the New York Times quoted one MVP voter who said that he would have voted for Ortiz if the Sox hadn't finished "behind" the Yankees in the East. So Ortiz didn't get a first place vote because the Indians lost over the last weekend (thus
not forcing the Sox and Yankees to break their tie)!!!! Who ARE these morons? What kind of %$##$%& logic is that?? Flipping a coin would have made more sense...
