Bonds, Sheffield: MVPs

Only "MVP" in this case might well stand for Mightily Vexed Player.

Sparks are flying in Chicago too: Dusty Baker is at odds with both Sammy Sosa and Steve Stone over the Cubs' poor showing this season. ESPN's Phil Taylor says that the Cubs are losing their 'lovable loser' tag, but not in the way they would have hoped - they're still losing; they're just less and less lovable.

[Update: I missed this one on Sammy, commented on by The Cub Reporter. All is not well in the Windy City.]
