I can't believe that some of the voters didn't have Farrell or Francona in the top three. What league were they watching?


I think that's the biggest gripe I have. Good for Tito winning the award. He somehow didn't get it during his time with the Red Sox, but he definitely has been deserving for a long time.

I still would have liked to see Farrell get it because it would have been the icing on the cake over the fondant, but both Farrell and Tito were deserving, so it's nice to see one of them get it.

And how did 7 people have Girardi in their top 3?

Two of them were reporters from New England: Sean McAdam and Brian MacPherson. What the hell?

Voting for awards is done at the end of the regular season, not the post season.

Thanks Ace. I was using that as an exclamation point to the facts that Farrell competed in the AL East, the RS went from last to first in said division, and were picked by almost every sportswriter and broadcaster to finish last again. The CHB even predicted that 2013 would be worse than 2012 (maybe it was for him, dificult to tell).

I think the word "gaylord" should make a comeback.

Being the lord of the gays has its benefits.

Ironically enough, Homobonus is the patron saint of tailors, shoemakers, and clothworkers.

He probably was trying to engineer some new fan meme or something. Man's got to sell books, y'know.

Nobody ever accused MLB players of being smart.


“When he gets up to bat, you can hit him and hit him hard,” the player said. “That’s what I’d do. He sued us. Jhonny Peralta and Nelson Cruz screwed up. You know what? They owned up to it. They took their medicine.

“[Rodriguez] needs to be scared of coming back and facing people he sued. If he can’t fear the wrath of getting kicked out or not being included, he’s going to be forced out.”

Dempster was just ahead of the pack.

The best idea in this situation is to have Daniel Bard ready to go. Teams facing the Yankees can trade for Bard and then have him face A-Dick a few times during each series.

You might be right. Prince Fielder has lost some weight.

But he will search high and low, and leave no stone unturned, until he's found it again.
