Troy Glaus

All of the players listed had good cases for World Series MVP. Tim Salmon especially could have taken home the honors with his 2 home runs and an extremely impressive batting line of .346/.452/.615. He also drove in five runs, but what probably hurt his chances was that most of his damage was done in game two. That turned out to be a critical game which the Angels held on to win 11-10 but with epic game six following, it was a distant memory by the time the MVP vote came up.

Glaus turned in the most consistent and productive series out of the bunch of Angels who stepped up for the seven games. His batting line was .385/.467/.846. and was propped up by his team leading three home runs and eight RBI’s. He also had what may have been the biggest hit of the series when he capped off the teams comeback in game six. That game is one of the best in Series history, and it is because in the eighth inning with the Angels down 5-4 Glaus ripped a double into the gap that scored the go ahead run. His MVP trophy was assured after that one at bat once the Angels would go on to win their first World Series the next night.

It feels like a long time ago when the Angels and Glaus lifted up their championship hardware. Hopefully it won;t be long till we have a new Angel take home World Series MVP honors.
