Quentin, but Dye never seems to get the credit he deserves.

There's still two months of baseball to be played.

No there isn't. The Cubs already won the World Series.

Lego hair all the way. Even when he struggled, he still got on base by stepping into inside pitches and getting the free pass........

im taking JD because he has played great defense this year to go along with great hitting stats

I agree, and in all seriousness Dye has to be one of the best free agent signings ever. He signed for less than he was worth (and offered) because he kept his word to a GM. He gets named World Series MVP in his first season with his new club. The next season, he would have probably won the regular season MVP had his team not faded at the end (through no fault of his own). His fourth season with the team is another MVP-caliber season.

A pretty good signing for both the Sox and Dye.

Does anyone think since they both play for the same team, that they might cancel one another out and Josh Hamilton will win it

Possibly.

Right now there is no clear cut winner. Hamilton's team won't make the playoffs. Quentin and Dye are very good, but they might split up some votes. If the Yanks make the playoffs, A-Rod will get his share of votes too. If the Twins overtake the Sox (which obviously won't happen...) Morneau could be a favorite too. Then there's the possibility of K-Rod as an outside shot too (although he's more likely to win the Cy Young.) All that said there's still 2 months left to play and anything can happen.

And I hope Quentin doesn't hit another extended slump. Through July, it would be hard to put Dye ahead of Quentin, but Dye is having an MVP-caliber season. Even in Northern California there have been people talking about both Dye and Quentin as MVP candidates.

There may have been Richie Zisk-for-MVP talk 31 years ago, when it was only the end of July.

I'll predict Dye for AL MVP and Quentin for World Series MVP.

TCQ has had the most game-winning hits and has been an unbelievable surprise, so I voted for him. JD is always the professional and Mr. Clutch, but the Sox would be in third place without Carlos this year.

I think you can make the same argument for Hamilton and Kinsler. Hamilton and Quentin are the lead favorites, but Dye and Kinsler have an outsiders' chance.

How about Quentin for MVP, and Dye for Comeback Player of the Year?

Maybe, but I hope not. Isn't Willie Hernandez, for Detroit in '84, the only reliever to win the MVP? In my opinion, the MVP should go to an everyday player unless a pitcher is having a lights out year. Yeah, Rodriguez may break the save record, which I actually doubt, but he hasn't been lights out. He's 0-2 with a 2.47 ERA, 3 blown saves, and a 1.25 WHIP. That's just not good enough for a reliever to win the MVP. Just for reference, Bobby Thigpen went 4-6, had 57 saves (no stats on blown saves apparently), a 1.83 ERA, with a 1.04 WHIP in 1990. Thigpen finished 5th in MVP voting, and 4th in Cy young voting.

I just looked ... Eckersley won the Cy Young award and MVP award for Oakland in '92 also.
