Who are your early picks for AL and NL MVP? My early picks are:
AL: Jim Thome (I know the "DH is not a position" people are going to have a field day over this pick)
NL: Albert Pujols

Hafner and Mauer both have to get looks for MVP in the AL. Same with Vern Wells.

Pujols is a lock in the NL, but Beltran has been awfully good lately.

I love Thome, but I think Ortiz has a better chance at winning MVP than our DH (bigger market, numbers, division leader, espn love, etc...). Although, if I had a vote, I'd cast my ballot for JD.

The ESPN hype machine has been pushing Ortiz for weeks now.

Pujols will win in the NL

Ortiz or Giambi/Jeter in the AL (you know they have to find someone on these two teams, and it certainly won't be A-Rod)

Secondary consideration to Liriano/Santana


Pujols in the NL

A month ago, I would have agreed with the Thome and Dye votes, but the White Sox need to re-establish themselves again.

AL: Ortiz. We can all thank ESPN for that one.
NL: Pujols.

If Houston can make a run, I wouldn't necessarily count out Lance Berkman. But I agree with most of the others it's Pujol's award to lose.

AL: Probably Ortiz :(: . 35 HRs and 99 RBIs are hard to ignore...

Yeah, I know everyone is in love with Thome, as he is a damn good power hitter. Dye's getting so overlooked. Excellent batting average, great glove in right, clutch hitting, and great power. If he keeps up his pace and doesn't win the MVP, the baseball writers need to be strung up from their feet and beaten with fungo bats.

I hate Ortiz and the Red Sox personally, but you cant say you think Thome should and Ortiz WILL, because at the same position, Ortiz is having the better season. However, I agree that JD should get a major look, because he plays 9 innings a game, not 4. The same reason why a Closer shouldnt win Cy Young. If they pitched more then 1 inning a game, they wouldnt be so dominat (if Paplebon threw 7 innings a game, he would have an ERA over 4).

What can you possibly hate about David Ortiz? I'm not a Red Sox fan by any stretch, but he's such a great character for the game.

and if Dye doesn't win it, something is seriously wrong

Jermaine has to be creeping into the pic.:smile:

as much as I would like to see Thome get it, I don't think he will. I think he might be a front runner for comeback player of the year though

Agreed on the Comeback Player of the Year. Unless a DH puts up monster numbers, which Ortiz has been doing, it's very hard for him to win MVP.
