If I'm not mistaken, Joe D. won because Williams was hated by the press because he wasn't very cooperative with them and because Joe helped the yankees win another pennant!:lol: :lol: :lol: :NY: :NY: :NY:

Although today, such a characteristic would work against him...:(

Just think of what talk radio and the general media would do today if this had happened. Yes, Joe being a Yankee did help, but Ted was hated by the press and this hatred didn't end for a long time!:lol: :lol: :lol:

Sixty one, could you expand on this a little? I've heard some people (usually Yankee haters) who say that Joe won this and the 41 MVP because he was a Yankee, not because of his great skills.
