Definitely FRANK!!!

I'd say Joe Girardi, Felipe Alou and Dusty had a better day before I'd vote for a Yankee!

Well, if you define "better game" as "most valuable" to his team - clearly it was Frank.

While Jeter set the tone for the Yanks, he had help from Giambi and Abreu. Frank had almost no help against the best pitcher in the game.

Frank took it to the best pitcher in the majors and singlehandedly won the game for them.

I was sick to my stomach listening to Mike & Mike this morning and them falling all over Jeter and how wonderful he is and was last night. Bottom line, Frank Thomas and Barry Zito WON the A's game 1 while the same cannot be said for Jeter even though, yes he went 5-5 but if Abreu doesn't come up with the big hits with runners on it's a different game.

Which is why I don't believe that Jeter is an MVP candidate. Anybody can hit .342 when you have A-Fraud, Sheffield, Roidboy, Matsui, Cano, and Posada behind you to clean up your mistakes. I doubt Derek goes 5-5 against Santana in the Metrodome and beats him to win the game. Abreu's 4 RBIs were the difference. Otherwise, the kittens steal game 1.

The question is "Who had a better game?"

Answer: Jeter

Frank was awesome. He made the difference, but that's not the question.

Against the best pitcher, on the road, and won them the game.
