If Carlos Lee keeps this pace up, 8-o , he may be the darkhorse!

But in all seriousness

AL - Tejada
AL - Arod

NL - Pujols
NL - Abreu

Can the Cubs win without Lee - no. Can the Cards win without Pujols - definitely. Hence why Steve Nash and not Shaq was the basketball MVP. If the Cubs make it to the playoffs, I think Lee is the MVP. If they don't, I agree they're looking for reasons to give it to Pujols.


ummmmmm.... did you mean that is why shaq should have won the mvp. i know you dont think that shaq's supporting cast(wade) was better than nash's(amare, marion, q-dog).

The reason why I don't see A-Rod winning it is how much he gets bashed in the media out here. Sure, he's got the best numbers, but you would never believe how often the media says things like "if you take out that one TB game and such and such game, his numbers are just average" and "he's is just good in the blow-outs, the team can't rely on him in big spots" plus the perception that he is a bad defensive third baseman. Maybe it's too much talk radio in NYC, but I don't think so. If he can't pick up the east coast media vote, he wont win. Plus, I don't think a Yankee on a team that will probably not make the playoffs will be chosen for MVP.

Am I going to be the first to call Carlos Lee for real?
He's a second-half player, currently leading the NL in homers and RBI.
His average has been climbing steadily and will almost certainly top .300 by year's end.
And, most importantly, he has been key to his team flirting with .500 when everyone expected them to be celler-dwellers.
If the pitching continues to be solid and Milwaukee is even sniffing at a wild-card shot at the end of the year, and Lee is looking at .300, 35-40 HR, 125 RBI? I say he's your dark horse.
And, yeah, I own him on four teams ;-)

I think AL MVP will come down to who makes playoffs between O's and Rangers. Tejada if O's do, Teixeira if Rangers do, whoever has better stats if both do, A-Rod if neither do.

AL- Tejada. Not just his numbers on offense.. the guy plays everyday, gives 110% on every play. Plays great defense. And is the team leader. He makes everyone around him better. 2nd place will be D. Ortiz.

NL-Pujols. Many have said it and I agree.. Pujols should have won it already but because of Bonds he just couldn't quite get there. Bonds out of the way it Pujols's to lose. I don't think D.Lee will win because many of those that vote like to give the award to someone who consistently puts up the big numbers. Lee is having a breakout year no doubt. If he can duplicate it next year than he'll get more votes next year. But Pujols has been doing this for 4 years now. It's time he got the award he deserves. 2nd place will be D.Lee or B.Abreu.

Given all the hype lately, put me down for Dan Johnson in the AL and Weeks in the NL.
