Yeah it's on MLB Network too. I'm not watching; too depressing.

I'm kind of listening to it while I am working.

Now they're saying Martinez is asking for 7yrs/$210M.

Seriously? I mean he's a good player and any team would benefit by signing him but $30M per year for 7 years? Nobody is worth that; not even Bryce Harper or Mike Trout. Boar-ass is just trying to set the table for Harper's free agency next year. Good luck with that.

And Martinez is 30 years old. Gimme a break. Statistically he has 1 or 2 more years of really good production left and then it's all downhill. Look at what happened to Pujols.

I would hope so. Not only is it his third one but he's won one in each league.

Maybe not first ballot, because it depends how many others "worthy" are on it. You never know the way that balloting works, sometimes it's just ridiculous. And there are some egregious omissions. Either way, he definitely deserves it.

If Altuve wins the AL MVP award tonight it will be the first time a player has won both a World Series AND an MVP award since Willie Hernandez in 1984 (thanks to MLB Now for that tidbit).

EDIT: Altuve won. Good for him; I like him.

Those are the only two I would say really stand out. They had long and consistently solid careers.

The various MLB Network shows had discussions about the rest of the ballot all day. The bottom line was that you could make a case for or against just about everyone else on that list.
