I don't know why I always do the sports trivia ones like this... all they do is remind me how little I actually know about sports. Props to the rest of you though.

9/25. Would have been 10/25 if I hadn't forgotten the tenet: If there's a question about baseball, one of the answers is *always* Jimmie Foxx
Oct 10th, 2008 at 22:25 GMT
19 out of 25... missing Joe Morgan was inexcusable.

It seems outrageous that Babe Ruth and Pete Rose are not correct answers, doesn't it?
Oct 11th, 2008 at 16:54 GMT
Not really, Tom: The MVP as we know it today didn't exist until 1931, which was well after Ruth's best years. Rose won it once, in '73, but was facing competition from his own teammates on The Big Red Machine who won in '70, '72, and '75-'77.
Oct 11th, 2008 at 18:08 GMT
That was more difficult than I thought it'd be. I'll take my 18, but I'm not too happy about it.
Oct 12th, 2008 at 02:41 GMT
Crap, would've had 22/25 but I misspelled DiMaggio and Hubbell
Oct 15th, 2008 at 14:32 GMT
I missed Newhouser and Hubble... and Johnny Bench! No excuse. I knew it had to be from those Big Red Machine teams too. Rose... nope. Perez... nope. Foster... nope. Johnny freakin Bench.

Heywood J: It does, however, credit Gehrig for winning in 1927.
Nov 10th, 2008 at 11:14 GMT
Hey Kevin. You are correct; I missed that. Thanks for pointing that out. The deal with that was there was a League Award from 1922-29 that was a precursor to the MVP as we know it. Ruth won it in 1923, but one of the stipulations of that award was that no former winners could be considered, which explains why Gehrig won in '27 when Ruth had one of his best seasons.

time to add pujols to the list!
Nov 18th, 2008 at 19:53 GMT
I was just about to say what hsox05 commented...time to add albert pujols to this list because he won this years MVP and like
Jan 13th, 2009 at 04:18 GMT
22/26...can't believe i missed Ernie Banks
Mar 7th, 2009 at 21:22 GMT
It makes me sick to see Barry Bonds up there 7 times. How many times did he actually earn it?
Mar 25th, 2009 at 02:44 GMT
Apr 24th, 2009 at 20:14 GMT
i only got 15...i figured i would do better than that.
May 13th, 2009 at 20:25 GMT
@Teresa, If you believe "Game of Shadows" Bonds earned 3 of his MVP's before he started using HGH
Jun 2nd, 2009 at 01:09 GMT
Forgot Mickey Cochrane. 1928 and 1934 I believe.
Jun 15th, 2009 at 03:53 GMT
why isn't rogers hornsby on the list
Jul 10th, 2009 at 18:33 GMT
very interesting, hubbell won it in in '36 and no pitcher has won it twice since
Jul 10th, 2009 at 18:35 GMT
scratch that, didn't realize newhouser was a pitcher
Jul 28th, 2009 at 18:17 GMT
pujols is about to win 3rd just watch
Jul 30th, 2009 at 18:36 GMT
I got 18... the only one I'm ticked off that i missed is Frank Thomas. I'm too young for this stuff.
Oct 11th, 2009 at 20:08 GMT
@stlblues74 - because Hornsby's awards were before the BBWAA's MVP award. He won the shortlived National League award.
Dec 5th, 2009 at 01:47 GMT
Here's an interesting question: Who is the worst winner of multiple MVPs? Of eligible player, only Murphy, Maris and Gonzalez are not in the Hall of Fame. You could throw Newhouser in that group since he won both his awards in a WWII-weakened league. I'd probably say Gonzalez is the worst of the group.
Jan 4th, 2010 at 03:57 GMT
I can't believe I missed Greenberg. Gonzalez was too productive over a long stretch to be considered the worst. It pains me to say it but I would put Maris since he only had a handfull of productive seasons outside of 60-61. It's a shame but his career outside of three seasons is disappointing.
Jan 6th, 2010 at 15:59 GMT
@JoshT: Hal Newhouser is one of the least deserving members of the Hall of Fame - his career record throwing out his war-years record is barely over .500 (127-123). While conceivable that he could have done well against anyone in the prime of his career, he still only had 3 dominant years, and a total of 7 seasons with double-digit wins. Gonzalez hit over 400 HRs, albeit in a juiced era, but was one of the most dangerous hitters in the AL for a good 10 years.
Sep 21st, 2010 at 04:58 GMT
@slujboy - from my math, you're saying that 1944-1946 were the war years. most players were gone from 1942-1945, which would give him a 137-102 record in non-war years. his best year very well may have been 1946 when almost every player was back
Sep 30th, 2010 at 16:38 GMT
Man....Dimaggio over Williams in 41 is just inexcusable.
Feb 4th, 2011 at 22:41 GMT
Even more inexcusable is Joe Gordon winning the MVP over Williams in 42. Williams had the Triple Crown that year, while the only things Gordon led the league in were, no joke, strikouts and most grounded into double plays. Even in the 40's, it paid to be a Yankee.
May 5th, 2011 at 19:18 GMT
The media always hated Ted Williams.
Jul 20th, 2011 at 08:46 GMT
totally agree on the gordon/williams year. worst mvp snub ever.
Dec 21st, 2011 at 21:34 GMT
Go to H.E. Double Baseball Bats, Barry Bonds.
Dec 28th, 2011 at 16:26 GMT
Small fix: In keeping with the stylistic format Albert Pujols should read "2005, 2008-09". Good quiz overall.
May 2nd, 2012 at 15:46 GMT
Gottem all, nailed Greenberg with 4 seconds left. Spelt his name wrong with 6 and had to retype it.
May 18th, 2012 at 22:42 GMT
Jun 20th, 2012 at 08:57 GMT
Apparently I forgot Ted Williams. Smh.
Jul 16th, 2012 at 02:21 GMT
7 MVP awards and a gajillion dollars for a head the size of a basketball? Was it worth it? He may not have hit as many HRs, or been intentionally so often, but he was already a multiple MVP before he became the baseball "Ahnold." I guess the real question is, 7 MVP's for 1 HOF?
Jul 23rd, 2012 at 02:54 GMT
If you use Gehrig's 1927, then why not use Johnson 1913, 1924 and Rogers Hornsby 1925, 1929 season's
Oct 10th, 2012 at 19:48 GMT
Weakest multiple MVP winner? OK, so we have three non-HOFers (Murphy, Maris, Gonzalez), one controversial HOFer (Newhouser), and three players not eligible yet (Pujols, Rodriguez, and Bonds). I don't think anyone would dispute that the three ineligibles are better than the other four, even if you give Bonds a heavy penalty for steroid use. Newhouser won his MVP awards during WWII, but he was a terrific pitcher for several years after the war as well, and ranks as deserving of his HOF status, if barely. Murphy, similarly, should be in the HOF, as he is close enough to the "average" HOF to deserve recognition. So it pretty much comes down to Gonzalez, a darn good slugger but otherwise undistinguished, and Maris, a good slugger and fielder in a shorter career. It's close, but I'd say Gonzalez is a slightly weaker player.
