    Watching J.D. Drew get overwhelmed right now when he was up with only one out and the bases loaded reminded me of how some players find themselves to be horrible fits for teams.

    Whitson was the poster child. Can you think of anyone else off the top of your head?

    Perfect choice. Looked like a world-beater in Detroit, but once he donned the pinstripes ...

    A-Rod was a prime example of this, up until this year...

    A-Rod won an MVP with the Yankees. So no.

    Renteria with the Red Sox.

    Nomar as a Cub. Sosa as an Oriole.

    As a Yankees fan, I can say with clear conscience that the '05 MVP Award belongs to David Ortiz.

    Nomar would've been fine, had he not had his groin go pop.

    Sosa was off the drugs, so it was kind of hard to expect much from him.

    Fair enough. Just trying to help. Although Sosa's resurgence this year kind of makes a case to include him here.

    As a Yankee fan, I say BULL SHIT. Pappy never has to drag his fat ass on to the filed and play for 3 hours a night.
    If ARod was a DH for 155 games a year, he'd hit .390 with 65 homers and 189 RBI and 50 stolen bases.

    Ptichers play, fielders play, DHs hit. MVP not MVH
