Sometimes, I think certain writers write outrageous things -- particularly on the internet -- just so others will link to them.
This may be the case here.
And yet, I'm falling for it.
His N.L. MVP top 3? Manny Ramirez, C.C. Sabathia, and Ryan Howard. Two guys who spent the first half of the season in the other league, and a guy who did nothing the first two months of the season (and thus, whose overall performance trails behind others in his league).
His A.L. MVP? K-Rod. Because he set a record for the most saves.
So if K-Rod is his MVP, he's also the Cy Young, right?
Well, no...he has K-Rod third on his A.L. Cy Young ballot. And Sabathia, the highest-slotted pitcher on his MVP ballot, is 2nd in the N.L.
