Our friend, John Fay, believes Joey Votto merits consideration as this year’s MVP:
His big day yesterday Ã¢â‚¬â€ he was 5-for-7 with two home runs and four RBI in the doubleheader Ã¢â‚¬â€ put him in the lead in on-base plus slugging. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s what I look at first as an MVP voter. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s at .992. Ryan Braun is second at .985.
Votto also leads the NL in average with runners in scoring position at .435.
Again, I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t expect him to repeat, but his numbers warrant consideration.
What do you think?
