Just thought maybe he deserved it more but you can certainly make a case for Belle.

I think McGwire had 147 RBI that year. I know he had a great line with the 70 home runs, but Belle hit for a lot higher average, drove in more runs & added a few SB. Though it was def. close that year!


They were both on steroids, so it really was even ;-D :-b

Pedro in 2000 was the Fantasy MVP. 1.74 ERA. Second best? 2.58 by Kevin Brown who only won 13 games. If asked guys who had him that year, they will tell how he carried them that year. It is also that year that made him the consenus number 1 the following year.

Corking your bat doesn't exactly make you clean.
