NL MVP.

Postby SpecialFNK » Thu Aug 23, 2012 10:01 am

who is going to win the NL MVP?

does Andrew McCutchen get this?
currently..
1st in AVG - .349
1st in OBP - .414
2nd in SLG - .580
1st in OPS - .995
1st in R - 87
7th in HR - 24
13th in RBI - 76

Andrew McCutchen - .349/.414/.580/.995/ 24 HR/ 76 RBI/ 87 R/ 15 SB

who else is there?

Ryan Braun? .308/.384/.602/.986/ 34 HR/ 85 RBI/ 81 RBI/ 20 SB
Braun won last year, but then tested positive for PED. he won his appeal, but I bet there are going to be voters who will not vote for him this season regardless of his numbers.

Buster Posey? .327/.403/.538/.940/ 19 HR/ 79 RBI/ 56 R
Carlos Gonzalez? .317/.386/.537/.923/ 20 HR/ 79 RBI/ 78 R/ 16 SB
Carlos Beltran? .278/.349/.531/.881/ 28 HR/ 85 RBI/ 69 RBI/ 13 SB
Matt Holliday? .278/.349/.531/.881/ 23 HR/ 81 RBI/ 78 R/
^ teammates and could take votes from each other.

anyone else I haven't mentioned?

McCutchen seems to have it for now. We'll see how the NL Central plays out and where Braun's numbers land, and how many votes he will garner after this preseason's controversy.

EDIT: Posey is a darkhorse that will get a lot of consideration.

With McCutchen trending down the last month, I think it's Braun right now, with Posey making a mad dash to the top, looks like the last few weeks will make or break any of the three.

They're not gonna give it to Braun, and the Mets are terrible (decidedly less terrible than usual or expected, but still terrible nonetheless), so... yeah, probably McCutchen. And he deserves it.

Off the top of my head, other than a couple of good games this week, hasn't Braun been pretty cold, too?

Currently a toss up between Cutch and Braun...with an outside chance of Posey getting in there if he can finish strong and the other two don't.

I'm going to go with Braun...he's not likely to win it with the whole steriods thing though.

...or with the Brewers on in contention. That's basically why Kemp didn't win last season & that Dodgers team is likely better than what the Brewers are trotting out there right now.

Definitely Cutch at this point. With Posey and Beltran being the only challengers. With an additional wildcard team this year, voters will have less of an excuse for voting for playoff bound players over better players on nonplayoff teams.

If the Bucs finish above .500, the Dread Pirate will win it going away

I never know sometimes what people think as far as if you are saying who you think will win or you think should win...
