Mike G:

Thanks for the Nolan Ryan observation (and for all of your comments throughout, you've been remarkably patient). I went back and scanned his K rates, and you're right---quite odd. It doesn't prove he's a steroid user, but it looks like *something* was going on in his age 40 season, no? I mean, right? Who's a better athlete at 40 than 25? It's not like he got trickier, either. Maybe somebody *should* be asking questions about Nolan Ryan, since Roger's so eager to use Nolan as his defense.

It may not add up to all that many plate appearances, but it's annoying to watch Manuel go get him, consistently, for the last 2-3 innings in the field. I still think we'd see Pat's best game in a different city.

I'd agree with the argument that no one N.L. player had a season that was head-and-shoulders above the rest. On the other hand, Rollins' rate stats tell me that he didn't belong in the discussion. His positive counting stats were great, but his negative counting stats get ignored if you're only looking for reasons to hang your hat on giving Rollins an MVP award. Rollins' rate stats in the N.L. put him slightly below Alfonso Soriano: a guy who had a very good year who didn't seriously belong in the MVP discussion.

It is only going to punish Rockie hitters that have huge differences in Home-Away splits.

Like I said, I don't see any one player as having "THE" MVP season. I am fine with Rollins winning it because you can make the case that his season was very valuable to the Phillies. Rollins scoring 139 runs, 10% more than any other NL player, could be a reason why he won the award, along with the fact that he did go 30-94-41.

If the Mets don't choke, I bet it would have been Wright tha took home the award.

NL-only. "Gutsy" is a nice word for it. I'd paid $19 for him, but he was absolutely killing me. I knew he had a solid OBP, so I knew I on the inside that I probably should have stuck it out. But I'd stuck it out a month longer than I wanted to anyway.

That argument is going to punish Colorado hitters forever and ever. And it's only going to flow in one direction; I doubt a Rockies starter with a 3.80 ERA is going to get Cy Young votes because the writers feel sorry for him.

TJ, N.L. only or mixed? I've always said that one of the things about N.L. only is that if you pay $15-20 for a guy like Pat, you're married to him all year.

That's a gutsy move if you made it in an N.L.-only. Being a Philadelphia guy, I wouldn't have done it (there was nothing mechanical wrong with him), but I can see why you lost patience.

The funny thing is that the boos from 2006 continued into 2007 and then the fans almost seemed to give up. At that point, it's like Pat woke up from a long sleep.

Orlando Cabrera Cleveland Indians
Something seems wrong with these bid prices. If he earned $16, $23 and $25 over the last 3 seasons, why
does it look like we should only bid $15 this year? (or $11 in 5x5 ?).

I had him for $21 last year and can keep him at that price. It seems fair value to lock up consistent production across all 5 categories.
