    1. The more I learn, the more convinced I am that many players are over-rated due to inflated stats from offensive home parks (and eras)

    Why do you have AL MVP number one toughest, but NL MVP 6th toughest?

      I think Buck Showalter will win the AL MOY very easily. I know the A's surprised a lot of people, but they've had a somewhat recent history of success. The Orioles have had a LONG playoff drought and Buck is viewed as the #1 reason for their turnaround and change in culture. I think due to the Moneyball book, especially the parts about Art Howe not having any real flexibility to make decisions and most decisions being dictated by Beane, it will be a long time before an Oakland A's manager gets any real credit for his team outperforming expectations. The majority of the credit will go to the GM.
      My top 10 players:

      1. Babe Ruth
      2. Barry Bonds
      3. Ty Cobb
      4. Ted Williams
      5. Willie Mays
      6. Alex Rodriguez
      7. Hank Aaron
      8. Honus Wagner
      9. Lou Gehrig
      10. Mickey Mantle
