    The Tigers are not done yet! I think the key for them will be scoring early and hope to weather the Texas storm of relievers and hitters later in the game. Either way it's been a great season for the Tigers and I wish them the best of luck.

    As a general rule, I say an everyday player for the MVP and Pitcher's get the Cy Young, but Verlander is the Pitcher who is an exception that proves the rule!!!

    You also appear to be a bit of a confused individual!!! LOL J/K If a Pitcher ever truly deserved the MVP, Verlander's season is the one to do it!!!

    Now keep an eye on C.C. next year, he can now buy a shitload more Capt'n Crunch!!!





    P.S. Thanks. Always appreciate an opportunity to use the "Go Yankees" smiley!!! LOL

    Thanks for the

    Verlander was certainly the MVP for the Tigers this year which brought "swagger" to the team even when he wasn't pitching. I'm not sure how one measure's this but if there was a season for a pitcher to win this award this one was it. Go Tigers and Verlander!

    P.S. If C.C. is going to keep hammering down the Captain Crunch you better hope he is eating it with skim milk this off season!

    I know I will be villified for this, but just read some recent articles regarding Jeter and the 3.000 hit club and while I am obviously biased, it's very cool how the rest of the league regards him. Jeter has truly become actual Yankee Royalty, and I don't really say it as a Yankee fan. Seems the entire league regards him as the "Heir Apparent" to the Yankee legacy. I mean I always did, but it's nice when "Baseball" as a whole does the same. See the recent issue of MLB Insider's Club and ESPN: the Magazine for starters. Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle, Berra, Ford, Jackson, Munson, Mattingly, The Scooter and JETER. We are witnessing HISTORY folks!! Take it in and pass it on, whatever your team allegiance. These are the GREATS of the game!!! Pujols to follow I am sure. As well as Holliday and Mo!!! To name a few!!!

    God, I love baseball!!!!!


    And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming....................................... .........................

    I give my sons a signed ball every year at Christmas. Now I also give one to my son-in-law and one to my grandson who is only 18 months old - his has to be a rookie that particuylar year.

    So this year one sone gets CC Sabathia, one gets Felix Hernandez - my SIL gets Hanley ramirez (he's a Marlins Fan) and my grandson is getting Mike Trout.

    Maybe the'll give me a signed ball again this year - last year they gave me Mariano Rivera!

    Between them they now have many greats to include Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Robbie Cano; Mike Mussina, David Cone, Don Mattingly, Reggie Jackson, Francisco Liriano, Pete Rose, Dave Winfield, El Duke, Stan Musial, Yogi Berra, Melky Cabrera, .... There are a few more - we have had this tradition for about 12 years now since my boys were 10 years old.

    Maybe the'll give me a signed ball again this year - last year they gave me Mariano Rivera!

    Between them they now have many greats to include Derek Jeter, Bernie Williams, Robbie Cano; Mike Mussina, David Cone, Don Mattingly, Reggie Jackson, Francisco Liriano, Pete Rose, Dave Winfield, El Duke, Stan Musial, Yogi Berra, Melky Cabrera, .... There are a few more - we have had this tradition for about 12 years now since my boys were 10 years old.
    Absolutely Wonderful Tradition, Bob!!!! You are "Da Man"!!!!!!

    Thanks - Last year when I got Rivera - they actualy thougth of getting me Mickey Mantle - that would have been the most awesomest gift ever - and they quickly found out that they were priced out rather quickly - The four kids pooled their money (and my wife supplemented when they came up short) for teh Rivera ball which I believe they paid about $300 for! :-) man I love my kids! wifey too! :-)

    Wonder what this year brings!!!!!
