Do you think Eckstein's MVP was deserved?

No doubt about it, it seemed that everytime he came up he did something, ran hard, put Detroit under pressure.
I can't think who else would deserve it, beasuse as the commentators said last night, it's not that the Cards palyed really well, it's just that Detroit played poorly and Eckstein wqas one player who really took advantage.
He really stood out.

Its a bit unusual for a shortstop to win it (even more unusual when you consider Eckstein is only 5ft 7!), I didn't see all of the games but going 8-for-22 is a good enough start I guess, and he certainly proved himself as a quality clutch player in games four and five.

This forum is going to be dead now until April!

Thrilled with the result. Managed to win 120 euros too after putting a 20 euro bet on the redbirds at the start of the season.

I refute that, dead 'till April?
What about the trade rumours?
Winter training sessions in Ireland..
Managers being fired and hired..potential drug scandals..
(Mota being banned for 50 days!)

..almost too much going on to keep track of!!

Totally agree, watched the repeat of the 1988 World Series with Kirk Gibson a few weeks back and haven't seen many sporting events like that in my time, some of Michael Jordans moments being up there with it.

Unless you were being sarcastic, of course...

If you are being sarcastic then you are a moron.

Absolutely zero point in commenting on
something with as rich a history and passionate a
worldwide following as baseball when you obviously
know nothing about

You sir, are a clown
