Okay, congrats to Albert Pujolis for winning the NL MVP, also!

It is really great to see Dustin (Peedy) win this award.  Last year he won Rookie of the Year, this year this award as well as a Golden Glove for 2nd base and the Silver Slugger award.  If you are not familiar with him, he is the second baseman for the Boston Red Sox.  I'm sure you can't tell I'm a fan!  :)  Given his size, it is just amazing how much he is able to do.  Watching him play is so much fun, you think "no way he makes this play" ~ and he does!   He is also one of those players, not as prevelant as they once were (Manny???), who gets his uniform dirty just walking out of the dugout in the first inning.

By the way ~ Coco Crisp has been traded to Kansas City for right hand reliever Ramon Ramirez today.  Ended the year with a 2.64 (I think) era, and looks like he will join the set-up crew for Jonathon Papelbon.  I think it is a good trade.  Anyone else?
