I always saw the Comeback Player of the Year award as an award that should go to a guy who had a solid career, then got hurt or had a horrible year or something along those lines. If that's the case, it's Cliff Lee without a doubt.
Josh Hamilton's a special case this year though. He didn't have a big league career before his comeback, but his story is so amazing that I don't think anyone will be able to pass him over.
Although I don't think Hamilton necessarily qualifies for the award in the way I think it should be given, I do think he deserves it this year.
And I'm totally fine with that because Lee's a virtual lock for the Cy Young Award. Unless the voters go crazy over K-Rod's saves record. Which would be absolutely ridiculous based on the fact that he's not even the best (or second best - Mariano Rivera - or third best - Jonathan Papelbon - or even fourth best - Joakim Soria) closer in the league. That title goes to Joe Nathan.
