  • Who's your team's 2007 MVP so far?

    It's about mid-September. I figure that people can say who's been about the most important player on the team so far. The one, whether loudly or quietly, has done so much to keep their team in contention, or at least given them reason to believe that they can contend and play very well in the future.

    Feel free to choose co-MVPs, listing who are some of the most important players. Any summaries of the individual player contributions is definitely encouraged.

    For the Yanks, I'd say it's been switch-hitting & slugging catcher, Jorge Posada, who's having quite a year this season, and of course, Alex Rodriguez, who's been having a monster year.

    For pitching, I'd give it to Chien-Ming Wang, who's been very consistent in turning in fine performances, frequently giving his team many opportunities to win.

    For other teams, regardless of which one, please state your team's MVP, including reasons why you feel this way.

    I'm a Tigers fan so here's the awards I'd give out to them:


    ROY: Tough call since there aren't many. I guess Andrew Miller since he's done the most as a rookie although Ryan Raburn has probably played the best as a rookie.

    Gold Glove: Curtis Granderson

    Lead Glove: Carlos Guillen

    Silver Slugger: Magglio Ordonez

    Lead Slugger: Brandon Inge

    Most Improved: Curtis Granderson

    Least improved: Brandon Inge

    LVP: Jose Mesa, Neifi Perez, and Craig Monroe are off the team so I'd say Brandon Inge or Jeremy Bonderman.

    MVP: Magglio Ordonez

    MOY: Jim Leyland although he sure as heck doesn't deserve it.

    Cy Young: Justin Verlander

    Cy Old: Jeremy Bonderman

      David Wright. Guy is having a 30/30 type yr. He can hit for average, hit for power, has a great eye at the plate (one of the toughest 2 strike hitters to k), makes web gem plays at the "hot corner".

            Silver Slugger: David Wright

              Why not Brian Roberts at second base? He has 4 less OPS+ points but 26 more steals and only 1 more caught stealing. His EqA is .302 compared to Markakis .296, and he plays a more valuable defensive position.

                Agreed about Wright... I'm not sure on Maine yet... Sure, love the guy but his 2nd half has been so disappointing that I may be leaning towards Ollie... Their #'s, going into tonights game are almost identical! I just feel that Ollie has been more consistent... 7 wins before and 7 wins so far after the AS break whereas most of Maine's success came before the AS break...(only 4 wins after)

                I think you could make a case for either and neither is a bad option...

                  Gold Glove: Jeff Francouer

                  Lead Glove: Edgar Renteria

                  Silver Slugger: Chipper Jones/Brian McCann/Teixeira

                  Lead Slugger: Andruw Jones

                  Most Improved: Kelly Johnson

                  Least improved: Andruw Jones

                  LVP: Andruw Jones

                  MVP: Chipper Jones

                  MOY: Bobby Cox but he's made some questionable lineup decisions. So I don't think he deserves it.

                  Cy Young: John Smoltz (Tim Hudson a close 2nd)

                  Cy Old: Chuck James

                    Actually, I had Roberts written in before switching it to Markakis. Roberts may be more valuable, but Markakis has been the most consistent, and steals some bases himself. The argument could be made that as Roberts goes, so go the Orioles, but I still like Markakis.

                      In KC it has to be Gil Meche. Though Brian Bannister is having every bit as good a season it has been Meche's ability to go out there every fifth day and give us good start (31 starts, 195 IP's, 3.78 ERA). This is not Cy Young territory by any means but it has given someone we could count on. This in turn allowed us to keep from destroying the bullpen.

                      Since we don't have a single hitter whose production exceeds league average we have to go with a pitcher in KC.
