Jay Payton

We all know that Frank Thomas has been our Most Indispensable Player, but in my opinion, Jay Payton has been our most valuable.

I understand he's overly aggressive and has had some rough times of late in the outfield, but Payton plays just as hard or harder then anyone on this team.

He has had numerous clutch hits this year and has played wherever we have asked due to various injuries. Unlike some other players on this team, Payton is durable.

His numbers aren't anything to get super excited about ( 10 HR, 54 RBI and poor OBP of .330) but he does lead the team in batting with .300 clip.

The bashing he took at the hands of our fans last week really wasn't fair either. All Payton has doen since coming to Oakland is work hard and play to win.

I know it's not a popular vote, but Jay Payton is MY 2006 A's MVP.
