Giants Fan brought up a good point, with all this Ortiz/Rodriguez MVP debate, not much has been said about Vlad, but if you think about it, he really is the best choice.

Ortiz- Has Damon, Ramierez, and Varitek as his best three around him
Rodriguez has Sheffield, Giambi, and Matsui/Jeter
Vlad has Anderson, Molina, and Erstad

Who seems to be carrying their team more?
Ramierez has 125 rbi's, and damon has 72
giambi has 80 rbis, matsui has 102, and sheffield has 110
anderson has 88, molina has 64 and molina has 60

this means that vlads 2-3-4s rbis are 37-65 less rbis than everyone else

Sure Arod is the best player in the league, but Vlad has been single handedly keeping his team afloat in the offensive department

I don't think Vlad will repeat, simply because he plays in Anahein, and with all the Yankees Red Sox stuff going on, he simply dosen't get noticed as much as say David Ortiz and Akex Rodriguez do. He is a great player and has really carried the Angels, but I think A-Rod and Ortiz have had better years.

I didn't know that, but you realize this close to the post season they're not gonna pitch to him. I'm sure they'd rather pitch to Tim Salmon.

He's not horrible he's just been hurt the whole year, and he's getting older.

The angels had a really good 2002 team. All their old players who neevr did anything speacial had really good seasons.

I really wanted to Giants to win that World Series though, simply because they haven't won since 1954.

yea, they too had a really good team that year

They did, the 2002 world series was one of the best I've ever seen. Game 6 was amazing, yet depressing for me.

They had some REAL power hitters on that team let me tell you, I haven't seen a team hit so many homers in a long while

Vlad has no shot at mvp. And you don't award mvp based on the mvps teammates.
