Peter Gammons wakes up and smells the coffee:


MVP
American League
The Rangers may have been stricken by mad cow disease, but Alex Rodriguez is the best player in the league. Ichiro is right there with him, with Torii Hunter, Nomar Garciaparra, Derek Jeter, Darin Erstad and Paul Konerko on any list.


But then I lose all respect when he rubs salt on the festreing Ritchie wound:

Beneficial trades

5. Pittsburgh trading Todd Ritchie for Josh Fogg and Kip Wells.

Look on the bright side. At least the Sox were never stupid enough to trade Lou Brock.
