A-Rod Wins 3rd MVP

November 19, 2007

A-Rod won his third AL MVP award Monday, easily defeating Detroit’s Magglio Ordonez after compiling an astounding season at the plate. Rodriguez received 26 first-place votes and 382 points in balloting by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, while Ordonez had two firsts and 258 points.

Rodriguez won his first MVP in 2003, his last season with the Texas Rangers. He also won with the Yankees in 2005 — but he’s never played in a World Series.

“There’s definitely a huge hole in the resume,” he said. “It’s my third MVP and I’m here to say that I would trade all three for one world championship. I wouldn’t think twice about it.”

He put Daisuke Matsuzaka in Fenway Park and perhaps more significantly, Boras got another client, outfielder J.D. Drew, to opt out of his contract with the Dodgers. Where did he end up? Boston, for five years and $70 million. The road map is there. “
