Despite missing the entire month of September
while at rehab to recover from his addiction to Four Loko because of an ouchie spot in his rib area, Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton has claimed the 2010 American League MVP award over runners-up Miguel Cabrera and Robbie Cano. Josh won with 22 of 28 first place votes and 358 total points.
Josh led the league in batting average (.359), slugging percentage (.633), OPS (1.044), and newsprint/kilobytes wasted on spirituality (too many to count). Defensively, Hammy played most of the year just around league average in left field but improved late with 29 games in center field. His Texas Rangers won the AL West with aplomb, enjoying at least a five-game division lead every day of the season after July 19th.
Plus he once abused drugs and boozed a lot but then stopped except for that one time in the bar with those gals, so really, he was the perfect candidate. HUMAN CONDITION.
