The Angels would have gone nowhere without Vlad this season, so he totally deserved this honor. You can't discount the numbers he put up when it counted, especially in the last few days of the season.

I had wanted the Yankees to get Vlad last offseason, and was disappointed when they picked Sheffield instead. However, both excelled in thier new environment, and I am Glad Vlad got some much deserved praise.

Interestingly, Vlad is the NINTH straight MVP to come from the AL West.

Oakland: Tejada, Giambi
Seattle: Ichiro, Griffey
Texas: A-Rod, Pudge, Juan Gonzalez (twice)

So much for the 'writers don't stay up late and watch their games' theory.

Agent: Tell you what, sir. From now on, you'll be, uh, Homer Thompson at Terror Lake. Let's just practise a bit, hmm? When I say, "Hello, Mr. Thompson," you'll say, "Hi."
Homer: Check.
Agent: Hello, Mr. Thompson.
Homer: [stares blankly]
Agent: Remember now, your name is Homer Thompson.
Homer: I gotcha.
Agent: Hello, Mr. Thompson.
Homer: [stares blankly]
[A long time later]
Agent: [sighs in frustration] Now, when I say, "Hello, Mr. Thompson," and press down on your foot, you smile and nod.
Homer: No problem.
Agent: Hello, Mr. Thompson! [stomps on Homer's foot a few times]
Homer: [stares blankly then says to other agent] I think he's talking to you.....
