Well, if the MVP is given according to the stats then Derrek Lee should get the NL MVP. If not, then this is all about popularity(which it shouldn't). Derrek Lee had an outstanding year. He did whatever he could to help this team get into the playoffs(but they didn't), otherwise the cubs would of been last in their division by the way the team played. Yet Lee carried his team to atleast a fourth place. Reality: its all about team work!

ACTUALLY JOE DID TELL THE OWNER OF COMINSKY PARK, BUT NOBODY WOULD LISTEN. THE FIRST TIME HE WAS BRIBED, HE DECLINED THE OFFER. HE WENT ON TO PLAY THE WORLD SERIES AND TRIED HIS BEST, UNFORTUNATELY A WIN IS ALL ABOUT TEAM WORK WHICH IT DIDN'T HAPPENED. THE REDS WON AND AFTERWARDS HE GOT A PIECE OF THE MONEY. MY POINT HERE IS THAT THERES A BIGGER CHANCE HE WAS INNOCENT AND WELL SINCE BACK THEN JOE WAS SORT OF ILLITERATE HE COULDN'T DO ANYTHING TO STOP IT. SO PLEASE PEOPLE GO DO MORE RESEARCH BEFORE BASHING SOMEONE.

U probably have a point there dyams(i dont know, but the fact is many were wearing jerseys and even got out of their jobs to attend since it was friday, and let me tell you people don't risk jobs for a stupid "new bandwagon") the truth is the WHITE SOX WON AND THEY WERE THE TEAM WITH THE LOWEST BUDGET IN THE PLAYOFFS!!! NOW THATS TEAM WORK!!!! WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THE YANKEES AND RED SOX!!! THEY ARE OLD SCHOOL NOW!!!! GO CUBS!!!!

I thought the world series were amazing. I don't think the teams were a factor to the low ratings. In fact both teams deserved to be there. even though im a die-hard cubs fan i think the white sox were flawless. Yankees.. Red sox... who cares about them anymore. I think if they were in the world series they would've had low ratings as well, why? well because were tired of Yankees being there all the time and nobody cares about the red sox anymore i mean they ended their drougt already and they dont have a solid team anymore. People should watch baseball for the game and talented athletes out there not for "teams that are over used by the media" so their owners can get even more filthy rich.. well anyways CONGRATULATION WHITE SOX!!!!! YOU EARNED IT!!!! AND FOR THE CUBS HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE NEXT YEAR!!!!!
