    It's like the definition that judge used to describe porn in a free-speech case. Porn is like an All Star ballplayer: You know it when you see it.

    But 3 months to earn the game's greatest platform? Couldn't be siller.

    Are you ok with a rotten 66-67 games but not with 81 or something? You’re arguing nonsense.
    Nope. Not arguing at all. Please reread what I said.

    Apparently it's too easy for it you to figure out . Not going to get into a pissing contest with you.

    Silly is voting limited by the number of email addresses you have and 5 times a day per address, it really lends credence to vote early and often

    I remember getting trashed last year for saying Arrenado is the best 3b in baseball. Glad hes finally getting MvP recognition

    Yup. Pitchers shouldn’t be winning mvps.

    Not a big fan of pitchers winning the MVP either.

    I get why they can and I get that there’s the Hank Aaron award but nobody besides baseball geeks even know what the Hank Aaron award is.

    Exactly. Definitely not recognized as highly as mvp or cy young

    Find it hard to care about awards. Does not change the results. Players receive plenty of recognition with $$$$.

    I agree with that as well.

    There must be a better way for fans to vote.

    I think they should do a better job bringing it to light though.

    Hank Aaron, CY Young, MVP should all be given the same merit.
