Fenway is ideal for him.

We haven't even gotten to the All-Star break yet. He's still gotta make it through the dog days of the season in August and September.

Hey hey Mike Stanton ends an HR skid with a walkoff last night.

So far, he's gotta be a top candidate.

1B isn't the most grueling position on the diamond. He's also a mellow dude. I think he's going to be all right.

He certainly is on his way, although Bautista might have something to say about it.

Seems like Granderson might, too.

Possibly, but his lower average hurts his chances compared to the other two.

I know sportswriters probably don't pay attention to things like WAR, but Granderson is higher than AGon, but lower than Bautista (as per fangraphs).

Unrelated, but speaking of WAR, Dustin Ackley currently has .9 WAR in 16 games.

Bautista is having a historically awesome season. If he keeps up, not giving him the MVP would be silly to say the least. See this comparison to other historically great seasons, for example: Jose Bautista’s Historic Season and the Hall of Fame | Community – FanGraphs Baseball

And I wouldn't bet on Gonzalez's .389 BABIP remaining that high.

Yeah, I doubt they'd focus in on something like that too much.

I'd rate Konerko higher than Granderson this year myself.

He's a top candidate for sure. I just think its too early to say he's a lock.

As opposed to dredging up 3 year old trades of mediocre talent and declaring victory over two fan bases who forgot the trade even took place until you brought it up?

I'm glad you're happy with Jason Vargas. I hope he does well for you. I'm not exactly going to lose any sleep over his loss.

And sorry for the delayed responses... I'm out of my office during the summer so I'm about 5 days behind on everything

"Mediocre" talent that has produced multiple WAR each year for two years. And I only brought it up because I saw an article on the sbnation about it. From the perspective of the Mets.

I woke up to see that this morning. My god people, settle down, it's a baseball.


More shit like that and it is going to usher in hockey-glass on the front rails of each deck.
