Mvp

MVP race with about 30 games left...probably top 4 candidates are Cabrera, Hammy, Bautista and Cano. Bautista probably doesn't get as much consideration because he plays for Toronto. Cabrera has been the best hitter in the majors this year, but like Bautista's Blue Jays, Detroit isn't competing either. Cabrera could be a feel good type story because of his alcohol abuse struggles, but that doesn't compare to Hammy's feel good story (relapse or not) and there's the fact that he had an altercation. Cabrera has been great, but he hasn't been THAT much better than Hammy. Hammy actually plays for a contending team. Only thing that I can really think of as a knock against Hammy is the fact that he is so much better at home (.311 OPS higher at home, but road ops is still a healthy .894). Then there's Cano. He's a yankee. That's always a plus. But that team also has MVP candidates Teixeira and Nick Swisher (yes, nick swisher). If it's between Hammy and Cano I give the edge to Hammy. Let's hope he outperforms him next weekend in a SWEEP.

Angels 2010 37th round pick, Tagen Struhs.

2

From drug addict to prospect to the Major Leagues? This could one day be the story of Tagen Struhs, one of the Angels 2010 draft picks. I won't even attempt to steal the thunder from the article, but the drafting of Struhs not only conjours memories of Josh Hamilton's ongoing struggle with substance abuse, but also of former Angels farmhand and current Chicago White Sox closer Bobby Jenks. Struhs has yet to sign a contract with the Angels and is currently working towards his GED. The 1134th overall pick doesn't often make the major leagues, but I have to root for this guy on his way to recovery alongside the long and lonely road through Arizona, Utah, Iowa, and the other stops on the way to Anaheim.
