Wow, saw the doubleheader for the Phils today which proved that their bullpen is the absolute worst in the league, their manager is the worst in the league, and that Ryan Howard MUST win the MVP. He now cannot lose. No player matters more to their team's success.

Yes he can lose, if the team doesn't make the playoffs.

EX: Mike Piazza 1997: .362 40 124

It's the most valuable player award, his value wouldnt be as great because the team could not make the playoffs without him. Now if there was a player of the year award, Its his, because he is just a beast. So If they make the playoffs, yea, its a no brainer.


Numb. You see that catch Beltran made to SAVE the game on Saturday? Man he put himself on the line for the team big time (even though the game was meaningless) WOWZERS!!

ryan howard should be the MVP. his team is awful. take him out and they lose 100 games. with him they're in the hunt for the playoffs, all be it barely at .500 and in a brutal league, in the hunt none the less.

i don't think he will win it if the phillies miss the playoffs, but he should.

a-rod won the mvp (horrible decision) with a horrible team, so howard's situation makes much more sense than his. why not?

the only players of value other than him are utley, rollins, victorino, myers, and hamels. that's it

btw, at the first game sunday a fan ran out on the field at howard's fourth at bat and BOWED to him. we philly fans are too good

because when AROD won nobody had comparable numbers.

howard has great numbers, but so do other guys. if he doesnt make the playoffs it will be a big knock against him.

batting average is one of the worst stats to judge a hitter

I did see the Beltran catch. It was sensastional given the game situation. When he limped off the field, I got really worried.

The Metropolitans are 9-8 when Beltran is out of the lineup.

There's a good candiadate for NL MVP.

I think the Mets being so far out in front will actually hurt Beltran's chances, cause there's no stretch run to focus on.
So I think its a 2 horse race with Pujols and Howard.
I say Howard gets it as long as the Phils stay in the race until the final weekend.
Otherwise Anuses gets it.

i don't think you're giving howard enough credit by saying that anyone on that roster other than utley and rollins are "players of value." i guess you could consider hamels "of value" based on his potential, but other than utley, rollins and howard.. that team blows.

shane victorino does not exactly strike fear into the hearts of opposing pitchers.
