TSN named A-Rod player of the year

I just received an e-mail from The Sporting News saying that Alex Rodriguez was their Player of the Year.

Am I alone in being surprised that The Sporting News is still being published?

Anyway, according to the release, the award was voted on by 488 players. Rodriguez was selected by 353 of them. Wait a second, 135 players didn’t vote for A-Rod?

Magglio Ordonez, that’s one. Every player with Toronto, that’s 25 more. Bronson Arroyo, that’s another. Where did the other 108 come from?

No offense to The Sporting News, but any award where only 72 percent of the voters pick A-Rod as the player of the year is pretty worthless.
