Gagne Is Not the MVP

Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

I've been so disenchanted with the Dodger columns in the Times this week that when I saw another I disagreed with - the worst of the bunch - I decided I had to just let it go.

Fortunately, Idiots Write About Sports countered Bill Plashcke's "Gagne for MVP" column" today most effectively in a posting entitled, What's French for 'Are You Freakin' Nuts?'

They, like me, were particularly stunned that anyone could consider Gagne, in all his greatness, more of a daily savior than Barry Bonds.

Gagne's own logic that relievers are better contenders for the MVP than the Cy Young is every bit as flawed.

You know I think the world of Gagne, but please, can we maintain just a little perspective?

(Thanks to Baseball Musings for the refer.)
