I don’t know if we’ve done anything like this before, but basically, you go here and vote. Do it. Now.
If you’re one of those crazies who thinks Ryan Howard should be in the MVP discussion, or if I got one of the teams wrong, or you just want to explain yourself further, you can leave a comment. One of my picks is after the jump, and some of the other Ladies… will probably be adding theirs over the course of the next week or so.
Think! Vote! Discuss!
Crane’s NL Cy Young – Tim Lincecum. Chris Carpenter can take his “If that game right there doesn’t solidify [Adam Wainwright] as the best pitcher in the league, then I’m can’t imagine what would” and do something anatomically impossible with it – numbers don’t lie (assuming they’re sufficiently advanced), and Lincecum’s 8.0 WAR is a touch ahead of the spectacular Joe Mauer’s. Carpenter and Wainwright are each 5.5 WAR players, right around Matt Kemp’s value.
