    Did you guys watch Justin Morneau this year? Or just because its Jeter he deserves it. Justin outplayed Jeter, and did this on a team with a 30 million payroll around him, and carried the team into the playoffs and what turned out to be the toughest divison in baseball.

    ............in 1980 "Ordinary People" won the Oscar for Best Picture over "Raging Bull." A quarter-century later, people laugh about that one and someday, they'll laugh about this one, too, the year Ordinary Player, otherwise known as Justin Morneau, was named the American League's MVP for 2006.

    this was very justified. Morneau was a beast all year and starred in a very underwhelming lineup compared to what Jeter had surrounding him. No doubt Jeter was his usual great self, but Morneau simply meant so much more and did more statistically than Jeter.
