No, I think it's just the pictures that they chose.

I'd say Dye will come in 7th place. In no particular order, I'd say Morneau, Mauer, Ortiz, Jeter, Santana, and Thomas will all finish ahead of Dye.

I hope Liriano wins Rookie of the Year. It will give him something to remember his playing days by.

There won't be that many votes going to the Twins. If I had to guess I'd say it goes:
1. Jeter
2. Morneau
3. Ortiz
4. Thomas
5. Dye
6. Mauer
7. Ramirez

I think in order for a pitcher to get into the MVP voting these days they have to have a transcendent year, something like 22-3 with a 1.60 ERA or something of that ilk.

Dye may come in 6th, but Mauer will definitely get more votes than Dye. Each voter votes for the top 10 in the league, with this point system: 15-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. Santana will probably get a fair amount of 4th pace votes.

I'm sorry but a starting pitcher should not be considered for the MVP. Pitchers have an award, it's called the Cy Young...pitching every five days does not make you the Most Valuable Player in the league.

Big Frank should win it (I have a hard time believing the A's would have even been in the playoffs without him), but Jeter will.

I agree with you about pitchers being MVP. I'm just stating what I think will happen. Santana will get a lot of votes, I'm sure.

I think Morneau will win it. The Twins got hot at the end and won the division. He had great numbers. He'll probably win it.

Thomas had a great second half, but DH's generally don't win MVPs. It's just the way it is.

If the Sox made the playoffs, this wouldn't even be a debate. Dye deserves it.

I don't think a voter would be wrong to vote for Dye, but Morneau had 130 RBIs, batted .321, and his team made the playoffs. The award has pretty much turned into the best offensive player from a playoff team, like it or not.

True, but the voters always put way too much importance on making the playoffs. The bullpen sucking down the stretch wasn't Dye's fault. I think it was 2002 when Arod hit like 57 homers and didn't win the MVP because his team was in last place.
