ANTICRIMEDOGGUY: But he never won the MVP and he wasn't THAT great for very long.
In all fairness, McGriff was penciled in as the AL MVP in 1989 until he had a major slump in September that left a bad taste in the voters' collective mouths. After that it turned into Robin Yount winning by default over McGriff and the then-underpublicized Ruben Sierra.
