Once a Crybaby.

Always a crybaby.

RALEIGH, North Carolina (Reuters) - The man who finished second to Jose Canseco in voting for the 1988 American League most valuable player award says he should have the award now that Canseco is talking publicly about his steroid use.

"Where's my MVP?" former Boston Red Sox outfielder Mike Greenwell told the Fort Myers, Florida, News-Press. "(Canseco's) an admitted steroid user. I was clean."

What a whiner. The guy batted .325 with 22 home runs - decent numbers, but hardly MVP status. Kirby Puckett whupped Greenwell's ass in 1988. How he managed to rank second in the MVP balloting is a mystery to me.

It's not like it was a close vote. And I'd wager a good portion of the voters were aware (or at least had STRONG suspicions of) Canseco's steroid use.
