You all miss the point. What was it it that one the White Sox a world series. Little things, dip&*$%. Ok, its great to hit home runs, but again, take away the home runs and what do we really have? Mags had, by far, many more rbi's from hits other than home runs. I think we can say that both are very talented players, but Mags did good things in many more ways than just depend on blasting home runs.

It's not like OSU in the past, oh let's say, 6-7 years has been a big pile of crap that Michigan should have easily rolled over, like Nebraska rolling over Kansas back in the day. OSU has been a contender for, or in the national championship during this period, so I think the record is a moot point. Both these teams go back and forth with one getting the better of the other for a few years at a time. It's been like that for 40 years.

Ok, A-rod had a great year, but if he wore the old english D and Mags is in pin stripes, Mags wins the MVP, with homers from NY voting for A-rod. Jimmy Rollins had an ok year and he won over Halliday, so explain that one? Let's not fool ourselves here, if the Tigers weren't hit with the injuries they had they win over 100 games, the world series...yada...yada...yada. Put an average player at third in A-rod's place and the they're still playoff contenders. My point is that we get caught up in home-run hitting when it's all the little things that Mags did that get overlooked (Hitting for average driving in a ton of runs, doubles galore, etc.) All a-rod has is home-runs and after that what did he really do? I wish the other writers would get their heads out of the yankee butt and look at what other teams and players are doing.
