Hello Fellow and Lady Posters.  Didn't someone predict that Wieters would be the 2014 AL MVP and didn't several uninformed posters criticize said prediction in rather severe terms?  Please reference the Prediction Thread for details.

 

Apologies are being accepted from the non-believers.

Madam Tootsie, your math is very impressive.  Wieters is on pace for about 30 homers, 110 RBI's, and a .350 BA.  Combine that with the O's first place finish in the AL East with 93 wins and you've got the MVP.

This is idiotic.

 

If the MVP were decided today it would go to Abreu.

 

I'm as happy as anyone to see Weiters starting on what appears, finally, to be his breakout offensive year.

 

I've also been one of his staunchest defenders on this board and suggested, again correctly, that he was just entering his prime and we should expect that his best years are ahead of him.

 

He's going to have a very good year but the MVP talk is becoming ridiculous.

Dear Madame Joy,

 

Your prediction for MVP Wieters was .255, 22 HR, and 80-90 RBI's, hardly the prediction of a breakout year. 

 

Are you ready to dye your hair green and run naked through the streets of Brooklyn?  Are you ready to don the purple studded jock strap for the run down Padonia Road?  In the interest of the good (and bad) people of Brooklyn and Padonia Road, I'm prepared to allow you to withdraw your offers.

Wow, I guess I just haven't been paying attention. Has Wieters amassed more than 22 home runs and 90 RBI's already?
