Right now, I hope it's Upton, but I think Braun will win it. 'Backs could easily get overtaken by the Giants, but moreover, I feel the writers will likely reward the Brewers for their really strong finish.

Another writer wanting to be controversial. :-B

So now let's give Halladay the MVP even though he's not assured of the Cy Young? ;-7

Sure, he's the best candidate for both awards.

he's not even close to being the most valuable player on his own team.

Depends on what you believe in. Some don't feel WAR is the end all be all.

he has a .965 OPS and 28 hr and 100 RBI and it's still august. I agree that Braun is better, but his "MVP stats" stack up with anyone.

just sayin' he should be mentioned.

I don't see why he would. He's putting up worse offensive numbers than multiple players who don't have the deadly combination of being a bad fielder at the easiest position and a horrible base-runner. Not much makes sense in MVP voting, but I at least have enough faith that they don't consider Fielder.
