Felger & Mazz: Justin Verlander Wins MVP, Ellsbury Finishes Second

Felger and Massarotti opened the show discussing the M.V.P voting process in Major League Baseball and this years winner, Detroit Tigers pitcher, Justin Verlander.

Boston Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury finished 2nd in the voting. Even though Verlander is a pitcher, does he deserve the award? Did the voters get it right?

Twelve years ago, this town had the same debate about a pitcher being able to win the MVP award. Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez didn’t win it in 1999, but Verlander won it this year. How much of a difference in performance was there between Pedro in ’99 and Verlander in ’11?

Should a pitcher win the MVP?
