    The Scrappy Award.

    Awe.Some.

    Surprised it's not the "dirty uniform" award.

    Does Freel have any of these on his mantle?

    These days, it is a sin to hustle. It must mean you have no talent.
    Talent is God Given: be humble.
    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.

    It's not exctly the MVP award but it's something. Some good players on that list from last year.

    For those of you who want to mock Rosales, be reminded that MLB has other awards for things that aren't exactly related to performance. The Fred Hutchinson Award and I believe there is a Roberto Clemente Award as well.

    Yeah, but when hustle is your only talent?

    I like the way Adam plays in that he "plays the game the way its supposed to be played". Heart, hustle, scrap.

    I just wish he was a better player. Too bad he doesn't have the matching talent.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    You're right. He made it to the major leagues because he sprints to his position. No talent whatsoever. Please.

    He's no All-Star, but there are a lot of guys in the minors who will never see a major league field.

    Congrats to Rosales.

    When I saw this, I knew it would fuel the long-running RedsZone tensions between Cincinnatians' love for West Side blue-collar Pete Rose scrappiness and data-driven win-share talents.

    Yes, he does. According to George last night, prior Reds winners include Jerry Hairston Jr., Ryan Freel, and Adam Dunn.

    He just doesn't have major league talent.

    That's all I'm sayin'.

    He's got major league scrap and hustle, but he just doesn't have a major league offensive skillset. His defense is marginal for a major leaguer, IMO.
