Short and sweet.

Congratulations Joe Mauer on a well deserved first MVP award.

Keizo Konishi--you kind of suck. And that's all I'm going to say about that.

Also filed under things that suck: Miguel Cabrera gets a $200,000 bonus for coming in 4th in the voting, and Joe Mauer gets $100,000 for winning the darn thing. Hopefully we will just tack another $100,001 on to his gigantic contract offer to make up for it.

I'll chip that extra $1 for Joe. Heck, I'll even chip in 20 bucks if that's what it takes.

I almost want to agree with you.. then I thought for a second. Miguel Cabrera had to watch his team TANK the final month of the season when they had it in the bag. One more game...
I think we can let him have an extra $100,000 to cry about it all.

Oh... and how come a Japanese writer for a Japanese newspaper is allowed to vote for the BBWAA??

He writes for a Seattle newspaper too. Apparently he only writes about Ichiro, though.

There were a lot of theories out there today that perhaps he voted against Mauer out of spite for Mauer beating Ichiro out for the batting title.

Apparently, he's a part of the Seattle BBWAA... which doesn't make sense except that he covers Ichiro. But I would think to give someone a ballot, they would have to cover a team, not just a person. It's ridiculous.
