Barry Bonds was named the NL MVP (http://espn.go.com/mlb/news/2001/1119/1280603.html). That's my man! Too bad my Giants didn't make the playoffs. Congrats Barry. (I know he's a lurker here, I just know it.)

That boy is a lurker everywhere. He flys so damn low beneath the media convoy. I feel bad for the guy since everyone hates him 'cause of that.

i've never been a huge bonds fan, but i don't understand why he's always gotten so much flack from the media. from what i've read about him, he's a nice guy who happens to guard his privacy a little more than some athletes. i can respect that. he's definitely not an albert belle or john rocker.......and he seems to be a good citizen. i say GO BARRY!

The media does seem to confuse jerks with people who don't like to give interviews. Sad to say, I think Barry Bonds probably falls into the first category. He's often brusque, rude, and it's no secret the guys on his team aren't thrilled with him. He has a bloody throne in the clubhouse, for christ's sakes!
I just can't bring myself to like the guy. It isn't race, it isn't that Mark McGwire was more affable, it isn't because he's from San Fran (home of the homers, and I don't mean home runs). He just rubs me the wrong way.

Barry Bonds MVP *yawn*
More impressive is Ichiro Suzuki winning Rookie of the Year as well as AL MVP. Check out this impressive article:
The only other rookie to win the MVP was Boston's Fred Lynn in 1975. Last week, Suzuki received 27 of 28 first-place votes in balloting for AL Rookie of the Year.
The 28-year-old outfielder, the first rookie to win a batting title since Tony Oliva in 1964, led the AL with a .350 average and topped the major leagues with 56 stolen bases, impressed voters with his speed and his strong arm. His 242 hits were a rookie record, the most for anyone since Bill Terry's 254 for the 1930 New York Giants.
