It seems just about anything can upset a Yankees’ fan. Magglio Ordonez finished a distant second place in the American League MVP race and he even picked up a couple of first place votes. Of course those votes came from a pair of Detroit writers and that’s what has everyone all up in arms. Regardless, Ordonez had a monster season and had it not been for an even bigger year by Alex Rodriguez, he would have walked away with the title. Kind of like those solid years Albert Pujols had when Barry Bonds was going nuts with some of those seasons he had earlier in the decade.
Jason Beck also did a new mailbag column where he addresses Joel Zumaya’s post-surgery velocity as well as the Scott Boras/Kenny Rogers split. Good stuff as always from Mr. Beck.
