"Candidate For MVP(Or Tim's Petition For Sainthood-Ditto, Miller & Morgan)For Derek Jeter(All You Shills Including Kay, Shut Up, Thanks)"
The “Gang of Two” on ESPN, Jon Miller & Joe Morgan, couldn’t get the 1st names of Sox Players correct, but all that one heard about was Dear, Darling Derek Jeter. What was FORGOTTEN was that the Red Sox took 3 out of 4 Games from the Yankees, causing the huge # of October “Arrivistas” who came to the South Bronx, looking for a celebration of the Yankees 9th Straight East Crown, & being sent home without supper, instead. It couldn’t happen to nicer “Fans”, who believe that they have a sense of entitlement, unseen anywhere, in modern times.
Did anyone notice in this year’s All Star Game, that when Alex Rodriguez fielded a ball & almost threw it away,which 1st Baseman saved that throw from landing in the stands, to become an unexpected All Star Game Souvenir?
Answer is David “Big Papi” Ortiz, but I don’t think that the pundits noticed. David does play a good 1st base, but his forte is as a Designated Hitter, which has been a position in the American League since 1972, if any pundit has noticed. His RBI totals also include Game Winning Hits, but that isn’t what’s really looked at by Baseball Writers.
You see, David is NOT a National Commercial Spokesman for a major product. Derek Jeter has a Cologne called “Driven”, while Alex Rodriguez is a major spokesman for Pepsi.
What I’m afraid of, is that the Most Valuable Player Award, is just a ploy for what the sponsors want, in order to target sales in major media markets. Sex Appeal sells. It isn’t about achievement anymore.
