Good god man, Yankee fans will spin shit any way they can these days.  There is no way to justify paying these choke artists to fail in the playoffs like they did.  Especially, when its mostly small market teams that are winning these days.  Yankees have to adapt.

I'm not spinning anything.  I just listened a member of the baseball media explain how the red sox are in a better position for success than NY, at this very moment.

red sox in better shape, i can't see that in any way except if your considering money as success and not a world championship. yankees overspent and got eliminated. redsox dumped payroll and stunk it up under bobby valentine just as i knew they would. whoever left that guy back in the country no less the major leagues  anyway?

He's talking about his age 41 year in isolation.

The real argument is that Williams did it in 87 fewer PA.  Then the reverse is that Williams batted against pitchers who built bridges and waited in line for soup in the offseason, whereas Ibanez did it against much better competition.....then it......

That's the whole point - that Raul Ibanez was able to do the same thing as Ted Williams in his 41st year, which is a feat unto itself.

Nobody's saying Raul could carry Ted's jockstrap or anything.

exactly and raul has 5 games to hit 1 more and stand ahead of  everyone all-time at that age .  ted was going to quit playing a year or two before he actually did but a friend talked him out of it telling him  that he's so close to some milestones like 500 homers etc. ted played on and actually hit a long homer his last at bat.

With the advances in training, nutrition, off season workouts, etc... comparing ages now isnt anything special imo. 

The only way to do it is to look at the deviation from the mean at the current period.  Comparing numbers at face value without context is worthless.  So we pretty much agree.

But, with respect to Ibanez, there's no other 41 year olds doing this, so it's special.   Factor in he's facing better comp, even moreso.

checked it out there was a lot of ties in the early days. but even more surprising was the new york yankees were actually the original baltimore orioles franchise from 1901-1902. 1903-1912 they were called the new york highlanders[actually knew that]. and officially became the yankees in 1913 to present day.

I used to think it belonged to Altuve but Judge leads in HR / RBI in the counting stats, but also in OBP / SLG / wOBA / wRC+ and tied in Fangraphs WAR.

It should go to Judge.

Good point, but I discount runs / RBI since are largely dependent on what others' do, rather than the player himself.

as great the seasons Judge & Altuve are having, Trout is still the leader in OBP & SLG.

Mike Trout has a genuinely massive cock.

Trout's the leader in WPA and it ain't close.  Altuve is 2nd.  (Judge is 28th.)

I'm probably the biggest Trout fan out there, and feel he should have 5 or so MVPs at this point (even during Miggy Triple Crown year)........it's unfortunate he got hurt this year.

I just think what Judge is doing as a rookie is insane 50 HR / 125 R / 120 BB - only done by Ruth / Mantle / McGwire / Bonds.............he is also a good defender and baserunner as well.

I understand the value Altuve provides with his numbers relative to his position, but I believe Judge's edge in the statistical categories he's leading in outweighs it.

I think MVP should be "best player" since MVP is so subjective and writers just make up shit to vote for who they want, but, in this case, I think he kind of fits that mold too.

I give it to Judge. He is a rookie for crying out loud. He has also scored more runs and has a better OPS than Altuve.

                     ;) ;) ;) ;) over here we pay men millions of dollars to throw hard projectiles at other men holding wooden clubs trying to hit the projectile into a large field of play,, if he is so lucky to hit said projectile aka a ball, he can now traverse his way around a four bag system known as a diamond. if he is very skilled and hits the ball over a distant wall he can now traverse his way safely around the diamond without impedance of the 9 fielders trying to stop his journey around said base path. this is known as a four bagger or home run.
