Wednesday, November 21, 2001 MLB - Ichiro edges Giambi for AL MVP

Exhibit # 2512 in the argument that sportswriters as a group have about as much sense as a bunch of network executives. The only reason Ichiro Suzuki won the MVP was the hype. All season long, he was the player everybody talked about. Naturally, given that sportswriters have the same problem as Oscar voters with long-term memory, they remember that hype and respond to it. Meanwhile, Ichiro wasn't even the best player on his own team (Hi, Bret Boone). Where's my gun?
