Dustin Pedroia... MVP!

Postby lastingsgriller » Mon Apr 20, 2009 2:58 pm

so I was looking at last years MVP and trying to determine weather he deserved this award or if this was simply a case of east coat bias and the fact the people just simply seem to like him..

here are the numbers or pedroia and his two closest competitors..

Avg .326, 118 runs, 213 hits, 54 doubles, 17 HR, 83 RBI, 20 steals, 322 total bases, .376 OBP, .493 SLG%, .869 OPS, total runs created 184, 52 K's

Avg. 312, 91 runs, 168 hits, 43 doubles, 29 HR, 115 RBI, 3 steals, 306 total bases, .390 OBP, .569 SLG%, .959 OPS, total runs created 177, 108 K's

Avg. 300, 97 runs, 187 hits, 47 doubles, 23 HR, 129 RBI, 0 steals, 311 total bases, .374 OBP, .499 SLG%, .873 OPS, total runs created 203, 84 K's

MVP debates were discussed pretty thoroughly when they came out if you search for them.

Well, comparing him to Youk won't get rid of any East Coast bias.

His numbers compare pretty well to Morneau; I'd call their lines about a wash, but the fact that Pedroia did it as a 2B tilts the scale.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
