OK. Check out the logo. Don't know why I never thought of it before last night...BUT...why is the apostrophe in the logo??? Maybe I'm dumb but I don't get it.

I think that answers the question pretty well. It's a "hack" used so that it is understandable. Otherwise, they'd be the Oakland As, which could be confusing for some.

Greinke also had four more complete games (six to two). I agree with you, anyone other than Greinke winning this award would be unfortunate. And Cardinals players winning the MVP and Cy Young awards, as appears likely to me, sure will be bittersweet....
