Most Valuable Jockey
Diminutive Dustin of the Boston Red Stockings won the MVP award; his teammate Kevin Youkilis came in third.
Rob Bradford and Alex Speier posted a brief and incisive debate over who was the more deserving candidate on WEEI's webpage
. They highlight lots of categories those two led, and who hit better against good pitching and who hit better in close-game situations.
The best stat, though, is this one, pertaining to Dustin "Swing For the Fences At Every Pitch" Pedroia:
Percentage of swings and misses on pitches faced: 8.1 (lowest in the AL)
