That's right, the guy who missed all of last season with a possible career-ending injury who has come back like a house afire (currently hitting .326 with career-high 10 homers) isn't even on the list of candidates for comeback player of the year. Here are the choices:
Jason Giambi - Yankees
Roy Halladay - Blue Jays
Bob Wickman - Indians
Jay Gibbons - Orioles
Barry Zito - Athletics
Richie Sexson - Mariners
These guys are all deserving of being on the list, but how could they miss Ellis???? You can't even write him in, you can only vote for the ones on the list.
Seems to me it's a foregone conclusion that Jason Giambi will win this award. After all, Giambi had A LOT OF COMPLICATIONS DUE TO STEROID USE to get over, so he deserves to be the comeback guy. Oh yeah, and he's a YANKEE (thanks as usual, east coast biased media). Give me a break!

What a pathetic joke. Ellis deserves this award.
