Predicting The MVP’s….

Now it is time to predict the big boys of baseball…the MVP’s. There are 2 ways to look at who will win this award. 1. The player that means the most to his team, puts up good stats and brings the intangibles (Pedroia in 08, Larkin in 95 & Gibson in 88) or 2. The player that puts numbers so much better than everyone else, you have to give him the award (Dawson in 87, Walker in 97, Bonds in 04 or 01).

Here are the candidates in the NL & NL along with the winners…

Another MVP for Pujols

Another MVP for Pujols

NL

Candidates – David Wright, Ryan Howard, Manny Ramirez, Albert Pujols, Ryan Braun & Hanley Ramirez

Winner – Albert Pujols

WHY – I was debating between Manny Ramirez and Pujols but sometimes you just have to go with the safe bet. Pujols will have the numbers and I think the Cardinals will be competitive in 09. Those 2 factors equal another MVP for Pujols

AL

Candidates – Kevin Youkilis, Justin Morneau, Evan Longoria, Miguel Cabrera, Grady Sizemore & Josh Hamilton

Winner – Grady Sizemore

WHY – This will be a battle of stats (Cabrera) vs team performance and intangibles (Sizemore). In the end, I think this is Sizemore’s year to breakout. The Indians will be very competitive in the AL Central and Sizemore’s offense AND defense will win him this award.
