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.

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.

He's legit MVP now.

Altuve may still get it because of position, but it's going to be difficult to deny Judge.
               i won't argue if either of the two gets the award.

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.

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.

Carroll William Hardy

Bats Right, Throws Right
Height 6' 0", Weight 185 lb.
School University of Colorado
High School Sturgis Brown High School
Debut April 15, 1958
Final Game September 27, 1967

Died August 9, 2020 in Highlands Ranch, CO USA
BR page

Biographical Information
Carroll Hardy played 8 games for the 1955 San Francisco 49ers as a running back.

He is the answer to a trivia question as the only player to pinch hit for Ted Williams; it happened on September 20, 1960, in the last weeks of Williams' career. Williams fouled a ball off his foot in the 1st inning, Hardy took over for him and lined into a double play. He is also the answer to an even more trivial question, as the only player to break a scoreless tie with a walk-off grand slam in the 12th inning (no one has done this in a later inning). It happened for the Boston Red Sox against the Cleveland Indians on April 11, 1962: Hardy drove in Carl Yastrzemski, Frank Malzone and Russ Nixon. It was the first home run that rookie pitcher Ron Taylor had given up.

On May 31, 1961, Hardy also pinch hit for rookie Carl Yastrzemski, making him the only player to substitute for future Hall of Famers, Yaz and Teddy Ballgame. Hardy also hit his first major league home run pinch-hitting for Roger Maris when both were with Cleveland, on May 18, 1958.
