I watched the whole thing and I am disappointed Albom does not talk about Aaron Heilman.

A waste of 5 minutes; brief synopsis:
1) the "novel" he's plugging: the point of Time is not to count it, but to Make It Count
2) "we" saw Miguel Cabrera "deliver in the clutch" and Create an Aura around his team (Huh? Was he playing for the Yankees this year?); the MVP is not about [a bunch of made-up numbers nobody has EVER cited to make the case for Trout], it's about....what "we" saw

I thought Aura was half a stripper team in Pawtucket?

Ah, a modern day Lao Tzu.

I know people complain about Bill Plaschke, T.J. Simers and the like, but at least they're still sports journalists, and are still active in the area.

Mitch Albom? He's just an ####### that moved on to other areas and just pretends he's still a sports journalist. Why the heck are we paying attention to this fool?

Mitch Albom is an insufferable moron.

You can't prove this.

I wish that geek would stop trying to use numbers to tell me how many people I'm going to meet in heaven. He should get out of his mom's basement.
