Clint Hurdle is launching himself into NL MOY conversations. I'm tempted to place him over Redmond.

And if I recall, Marte has had a monster second-half to 2014. Marte, Cutch, Polanco. Sucio.

AL MVP - Mike Trout - finally

AL ROY - Jose Abreu - MVP if his team was in the playoff hunt

AL CY Young - Felix Hernandez - same deal as above with Chris Sale

AL COY - Mike Scioscia


NL MVP - Clayton Kershaw - no clear hitter, amazing year

NL ROY - Jacob DeGrom - bad year for NL Rookies, Hamilton is ok

NL CY Young - Clayton Kershaw

NL COY - Matt Williams
post #26708 of 77453
^ Respectfully, could you please tell me why Matt Williams?

Rookie Manager who led Nationals to (probably) best record in the NL despite injuries to Zimmerman, Ramos, and Harper

Understandable, personally not a fan of his decision-making with bullpen calls and lineup adjustments. I get the connection to hire Matty, his relationship with Rizzo in Arizona and how green Ripken would be for a first gig.

I'm not a fan of a pitcher winning the MVP. They don't play everyday

Stanton's unfortunate injury only helps Kershaw's case.

Clayton Kershaw is going to face like 900 batters this year, a Batter is going to make like 600 PA,

soooo, thats like saying you want 3 quarters instead of a 1 dollar bill becuase theres "more" of them. laugh.gif


It's very difficult for a pitcher to be the best player in a league, but its not because of the every day thing.

Defense and baserunning more than bridge that gap, Osh (generally speaking).

No one will ever convince me that a pitcher has equal or more overall impact than an everyday position player (generally speaking). That being said, I don't think it's impossible for a pitcher to deserve Most Valuable. But yes, really, really difficult.

Bullpen calls have improved dramatically in the second half. Still don't like Harper batting 6th, but it's working.

Bias aside, because you've been fair in the past, Matty's your NL MOY? If the season ended today.

Genereally speaking yes, I agree it's difficult or it should be.

Only Pedro in 00 and maybe Grenkie in 09 I can think of really merited in recent history.

Dellin Betances just broke Yankees record for most strikeouts in a season by a reliever 131Ks in 87 IP.

Previous leader Mariano Rivera in 1996 with 130Ks in 107.2 IP.

Nah, I wouldn't give it to him. I'd probably give it to Redmond in Miami. I'd give Williams consideration, but honestly he was handed the keys to a Mercedes and all he had to do was not crash it.
