      Here is a funny comment I just read:

      "Based upon the all powerful WAR, I propose that we go back and give the MVPs to the players with the highest WAR for each season. Congratulations to newly crowned two-time AL MVP Ben Zobrist (2009 & 2011). Zobrist finished 8th and 16th in MVP voting in those two seasons, but now he is one of the all-time greats after being awarded 2 MVPs in 3 seasons. Congratulations are also in order to 2008 AL (WAR) MVP Nick Markakis, who didn't receive a SINGLE MVP vote in 2008. The 2006 AL MVP is now Grady Sizemore, even though he finished 11th in MVP voting that season. If only the voters knew about WAR, imagine how different baseball history would look."

      Congrats to our triple crown winner Miguel Cabrera....greatest hitter of my lifetime for sure. It's been a privilege to watch this guy play the game. Here's to more MVP seasons in the years to come!

      Great gesture by the KC fans...for sure the first time I've ever seen a curtain call for an opposing player

      Its an aamzing feat when you think about just how tough this is. I mean you have guys that are geared to hitting homers and guys that specialize in batting runs in, and hitters like Ichiro that consistenly hit .320, and Cabrera is out there doing it all. Truly amazing, may never happen in my lifetime again

      The thing Cabrera should be most proud of is accomplishing everything without ever having been connected to PEDs of any kind.

      MLB Network. I have it with Comcast but local WOW Cable customers aren't as lucky (my in-laws are WOW customers). You can see if your inlaws cable company has it here: http://mlb.mlb.com/network/

      The A's know how to work JV and make him throw a lot of pitches.
      Like the Ace he is though, he saved the best stuff for last and sat em down in the 6th and 7th.
