Thanks to Blez, we now have wonderful polls going (over 1000 voted for the last poll!). But I think we should have a space to discuss why we voted for who we voted for. Well, fellow ANers, here you have it! Defend your position of who is the first-half MVP for the A's. Have at it... you can even defend your position of Macha, Young, Beane, or Blez being first-half MVPs!
