MVP battle

The Red Sox and Yankees meet up tomorrow in New York for their last four games of the season. I guess it would be an understatement to say that this year has been a very bad one for the Sox and a great one for the Yanks but one thing this year has been clearly understood by everyone - Derek Jeter deserves 100% to be the AL's 2006 MVP. No matter how many HR's or gamewinning hits large Papi had he still did not have anywhere near the impact that Jeter has had on his team. Put simply - the Yankees are baseballs best team - and put simply again - the Red Sox are definitely not baseballs best team - in fact they had one of the worst records for the month of August. While Ortiz has cooled down as the weather has cooled down - Jeter has heated up for the Playoffs. Ortiz has forgotten what it's like to play defense everyday - Jeter is a Gold Glove candidate. To top it off - while Ortiz has talked himself up - Jeter has only commented on the team.

It's not hard to see who deserves it more.
