NL MVP article on ESPN


Recommended Posts

Well, I admit that Cabs doesn't have a chance to win MVP (unless he goes on an absolute tear these last 3 weeks, and the Marlins win the WC), but Jayson Stark wrote a nice piece about the NL MVP race, focusing mainly on Howard and Pujols, but mentions Cabs 3rd. Here is the blurb:


Miguel Cabrera


Has anybody noticed Cabrera is having a spectacular year? He keeps bobbing in and out of the league lead in average, on-base percentage and multi-hit games. He's hitting .387 with runners in scoring position. He has been responsible for a higher percentage of his team's runs produced (16.0 percent) than any regular player in the league. And according to the stat gurus at Baseball Prospectus, the only player in the NL who has had a "more valuable" year than Cabrera, as measured by his value over an average replacement player (VORP), is Pujols. And Cabrera was actually No. 1 in those rankings until Pujols' game-winning double Tuesday against the Astros.
