Well, there are worse things that you can get from Babe Ruth.
Via Dom Amore:
Alex Rodriguez, BTW, will be in New York on Saturday to receive the Babe Ruth Award from the New York Chapter of the BBWAA.
The award, which for many years was strictly a World Series MVP award, is now given to the MVP of the entire postseason – it’s the only award of its kind, and truly Ruthian – and Rodriguez, beaten out for ALCS MVP by CC Sabathia and World Series MVP by Hideki Matsui, deserves the credit for what he did over the course of 15 postseason games. To wit, he was 19-for-52 with six homers and 18 RBI, and he walked 12 times. If A-Rod doesn’t homer off Joe Nathan to tie up Game 2 of the Division Series, the whole post-season could have been very different.
Better yet, Linda Ruth Tosetti, the Babe’s granddaughter, will be down from Connecticut to present the Babe Ruth Award to Rodriguez. Should be a great night.
