Plate Coverage editor Jeremy Lehrman recently had the pleasure of joining Wayne Unger and Craig Stier on their lively "Weighted Donuts" podcast to discuss Lou Gehrig and Albert Pujols, Adrian Beltre's place among the top third basemen of all-time, Mike Trout's MVP collection, and this, that, and the other thing.
Listen in as Greg Rasheed and Jeremy Lehrman talk about the long, somewhat twisted history of baseball's Most Valuable Player award. Why does the award matter so much to so many people? Are MVP voters racist? Is there anything more to say about Mike Trout (there is)? And what's Lehrman's problem with Juan Gonzalez?
