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.”

Redsox Talk A-Rod

November 8, 2007

“If we’re seen going in there or coming out, I’m sure there’s going to be ‘A-Rod, Red Sox’ on the front page of ESPN.com, but I wouldn’t fall into that trap,” Epstein said, according to the Boston Herald. “We always talk to Scott. We’re not scheduling a meeting with Scott to talk about Alex. I’m just checking in with Scott.”

Boras told The Boston Globe the meeting was a chance for him to make the same pitch he had made the New York Mets and the Los Angeles Angels a day earlier about A-Rod, complete with revenue projections. He said the meeting lasted more than an hour.

But Boras noted he was also touching base with the Red Sox about his other clients on the roster, including catcher Jason Varitek and releiver Eric Gagne.

“We went over all of our client list with them,” said Boras last night. “I’ll let them talk about the four-letter word [A-Rod].”
