You Better Recognize

As much as I love Curtis Granderson, you just have to give it up for Magglio Ordonez right now. He is just crushing the ball. 4-4 today with another 3 RBI leading the Tigers to a 12-0 win and series win over the Angels.

He is hands down at the front of the AL MVP race right now. Check out his stats and ranks in the American League.

Batting average - .361 (3rd)
Home runs - 12 (3rd)
Runs - 42 (1st)
Runs Batted In - 45 (1st)
Doubles - 23 (1st)
Extra Base Hits - 35 (1st)
On Base Percentage - .441 (3rd)
Slugging Percentage - .710 (1st)
OPS - 1.151 (1st)

Can you say WOW?!?!?!?! His lowest rank in any of those major stats is 3rd in the American League. This from a guy that was battling injuries the last few years and thought to be horribly overpaid by the Tigers when they signed him as a free agent. And let's not forget, he's the same guy that authored the single biggest moment in Tigers history in the last 20 years back in October.
