Winning the World Series is the main thing, but as long as they have individual awards you might as well talk about them. That being said why isn’t JD Martinez at least a finalist in the AL MVP race? I get it about DH and all that, but MVP is an offensive award and always has been. I’ve pointed this out before, but Brooks Robinson is the greatest defensive 3rd basemen of all-time so why did his only MVP award which was in 1964 come in his best offensive year? Why didn’t he win the award in any of the other years? Because it’s an offensive award that’s why. I think the ultimate winner will be Mookie Betts so its a moot point about JD Martinez, but come on he deserves to be a finalist.
The more I watch Tom Brady the more I think that he is grossly underrated.
I went 9-4 in my NFL picks in week #9 and now stand at 81-46.
