MLB announced their Comeback Player of the Year awards earlier this morning. Prince Fielder won the AL award and Matt Harvey won the NL award. Boooooooooooooo!!!
Oh, I'm just kidding. Fielder is a very deserving winner of the AL award. Alex Rodriguez was the runner up.
Fielder hit .305/.378/.463 with 23 home runs in 158 games this past season after missing most of 2014 following neck surgery. Before his injury in 2014, Fielder played in all 162 games four out of five seasons, and he played in 161 games in 2010 when he was still with the Brewers.
A-Rod hit .250/.356/.486 with 33 homers this past season after missing all of 2014.
Anyway, congratulations to Prince Fielder on an award that was well-deserved. And congratulations to Alex for making this into a debate on social media. Yes, some people are actually mad that he didn't win the award. I know, I can't believe it either. Even more amazing is that most of the people who are upset aren't even Yankee fans.
What is this world coming to?
