A-Rod was named MVP today. Only the two writers from Detroit voted for Magglio Ordonez instead of him. I think he deserved it but it should have been closer. His amazing season has been described a million different times so I won't get into that again now. Its his 3rd MVP and 2nd in 3 years.
Interestingly its the third year in the row the Yankees had arguably the player deserving the MVP. In 2005 it was Alex, 2006 it was Jeter, and this year it was, of course, Alex again. Those three years they missed the playoffs. I`m not one of those people that think that having the best player in baseball is a bad thing but its just an interesting note.
