Frank's having a decent year, although his average is about 20 points off, Barring any injuries, Thome should be a lock.

Didn't Giambi win last year after his "comeback" from steroids? What a joke. Hopefully Thome wins it this year.

Thome's really the only choice. Frank is a distant second.

Are their published criteria for this award? Some of the nominees are only coming back from being bad, not from any injury.

Thome or Nomar I would imagine.

Thome or Nomar I would imagine.Don't they do one in each league? Edit: Yes, they do. http://mlb.mlb.com/NASApp/mlb/mlb/fan_forum/viagra/y2006/index.jsp I find it just mildly amusing that the award is sponsored by Viagra.

The finalists lists for both leagues definitely have a Chicago flavor. Considering that Sox fans have shown the shameless ability to put Sox players over the top in these sorts of elections, you might consider Thome the favorite. But considering many Sox fans applaud Thomas when he homers against the Sox, I'm not so sure. White Sox Army might split its vote.

You might be right about Schilling.

Where is Mark Prior on this list? He did have a dominating win in his last outing!!

Why does every ****ing award have to have some fan element? Next thing you know, they'll let fans vote for MVPs too. It's ridiculous.
