    Yeah that's awesome! He deserved it. 13-0 in the second half with a 1.21 ERA or something like that. Those numbers most likely will never be beat by a Twin! Way to go Johan!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    I thought that Schilling might have got it for his gutsy effort in the Post Season. I know that it is suppose to be a regular season award but when they vote so late, after the World Series, people can't help but include that in the voting.

    I was happy that it was a unanimous vote for Santana. Normally there is a HOMER in there that will give a token vote for there hometown boy.

    The awards are voted by the writers before the playoffs start (supposedly) so they didn't see Schilling's efforts and then vote!

    I like to think they voted before hand also. But why wait until a month after the Series to announce it.

    I think they do that to try to keep baseball in the minds of the fan. They extend the awards and stuff and that probably equals selling more merchandise over a longer period of time. If they announced them all right at the end of the regular season then none of us would even be discussing this stuff right now. Know what I mean?
