Hawk and DJ touched on this a little bit today. Who would you say is the Most Valuble Player on this team.

Yup..throw in Jose, too for good measure.

Dye for his offensive consistency and defense:

Honorable mentions:
Thome (Dye wins for the glove)
PK (good glove at 1st, but Dye's numbers are better)
Crede (has to be most improved player)
AJ (great BA and handling of pitchers)
Jenks (better than that Boston shmuck)
Contreras (9-0)

I'd have to say Thome. His presence in the line-up makes everybody better.

07-09-2006, 07:48 PM
It's gotta be Thome. We would've lost some of these games without him.

This is easy.....

Thome has been big, but JD has brought it at the plate & in the field...

HUGE clutch hits & huge defensive plays.....just look at today.

Very tough to choose btw. Thome and Dye. My choice goes to Dye right now because of his defense, but it's anybody's guess as to who is best overall for the entire season.

07-09-2006, 07:59 PM
I voted for "other". This is only the first half and we're in the middle of a very tight pennant race. I feel that the MVP could go to anyone right now. We'll see who comes through in the second half.

07-09-2006, 07:59 PM
Dye is the AL MVP.

07-09-2006, 08:01 PM
Dye is the AL MVP.I agree.

07-09-2006, 08:13 PM
Dye. The man has gone way beyond my expectations.

Dye is the AL MVP.
Been saying this for awhile now.

Dye is the MVP of the AL. No doubt in my mind.

I just about spat up my breakfast smoothie when I read this morning's Dallas Morning News.

National baseball writer Gerry Fraley wrote that Joe Crede was his third choice for first-half American League MVP. He ranked Jim Thome first, which is not a surprise, but it's good to see a national writer give Crede that kind of credit for being so good at the plate and in the field.

Dye brings everything to the table. HRs, RBI's, average, defense, decent speed. I think my 2nd place may actually be Jenks tho. Without him, this team is nowhere near as good.

07-09-2006, 09:26 PM
Dye is ****ing awesome.

07-09-2006, 09:32 PM
I go with Contreras ... he's been good and steady all year. None of the other starters can say that. I think he's the main key to success in the second half.

07-09-2006, 09:32 PM
I said other because I don't think I can pick just one for MVP. Dye's had better defense, Thome's made the lineup better. Crede, Iguchi, and Konerko have had some huge hits and have improved their offense overall from last year too.

07-09-2006, 09:56 PM
Very tough choices when almost all of them are eligible for MVP. The thought of it has made me cross-eyed. Gotta go with Dye, though right now.

07-09-2006, 10:00 PM
Gotta be dye...on the flip side i have been very disappointed with buerhle...he has to be better, along with the other members of the staff

07-09-2006, 11:22 PM
I wanna say Dye, but I wanna say Thome as well. I am gonna go with Thome for the simple fact that we had no idea what we were going to get out of him this year and just look what we got. We knew JD was good and would probably be good again, but we had no idea what to expect from Jimmy. So my vote is Jimmy with Dye a real close second.

07-09-2006, 11:38 PM
Thome is a close second.

1 Dye
1a Thome
