Who do you think has been the most valuable player for the Reds this season? For my money, I think I would give the team MVP for 2009 to Daniel Ray Herrerra. The kid has done everything asked of him all season, exceeding expectations.

Votto, and I don't think it's close.

Willy Taveras- He is the perfect personification of this hapless, wayward franchise.

Agreed.

I'll need to wait until October as I'm voting for the last man standing.

Corey Patterson passed the torch beautifully to Willy Taveras.

Phillips, carried the team until his own injuries hit, and still plays.

Cordero.
There's no doubt that Votto has been the team's best player, but Cordero was an All-Star and avoided the DL while putting up excellent numbers.

He can't be MVP. He has his own "special" award.

Yonder Alonso. Perfect embodiment of the plight of the modern Reds. If it weren't for injuries, he/they would be contending at some arbitrary time in the future ( if it is after June, maybe as soon as next season).

Votto would be my choice if he hadn't missed so much time with anxiety and dizziness. You never really know if he'll be able to play from one minute to the next.

Herrerra has been reliable all season long. That's why I choose him.

I'll go with Brandon Phillips.

I'd have to pick Phillips, as well.

That would be me and I actually have a few games still to go this year, LOL :laugh: :beerme:

Seriously, I think it's a tie between Joey and Cordero. Cordero has managed to stay healthy (knock on wood) but he hasn't had as many chances to do his job as Joey has which is why I'd lean more towards Joey at this point in time. The Reds sorely missed him when he was out.

Phillips and Cordero are the only real choices. Votto would have been the guy, but he left the team and started its demise. Has to be either Phillips or Cordero.

I can name at least a dozen players before I name Daniel Herrerra the MVP of this team.

Any team that has DRH as its MVP would be the worst team in baseball history. We're bad, but not that bad.

I don't think the criteria for MVP is "doing averything asked and exceeding expectations".

Cordero and Rhodes have been quite a bit more valuable than Herrarra. So likely has Masset.

It's either Votto for holding our offense together, Phillips or Cordero.

No one else is even close.

I'd go with Cordero, as we haven't lost a game this year leading into the 9th. He's been the best of a very good bullpen, the only bright light this year.

I thought Votto was the MVP of the first two months. But at this point, he only has 18 homers and has fewer than 400 TPA. He's the team's best hitter and should have great seasons going forward, but I think he gets edged out for MVP.

I just don't see Phillips as a winning candidate. He's at .261/.321/.445. These aren't team MVP numbers. He gets a boost for outstanding defense and he plays every day, I certainly am glad he's around, but I couldn't vote for him as MVP this year.

As I said earlier, I'll go with Cordero for his outstanding record saving games, 26 of 27 I think. I think he's been the best Red at his position and has contributed heavily to whatever wins the team has.

But it's hard to pick an MVP on a team that loses almost every day. I go with Coco, really by default.

Current Record 52 71 0.423
with Votto 38 55 0.409
without Votto 14 16 0.467

I think the sum of all the injuries have kept the team from being better, for sure.

He didn't exactly leave the team like Ricky Williams left the Dolphins, keep in mind. And while Votto was gone, this team was more than respectable. The demise started because... well, because we're the Reds, and we're horrible.

Corky Miller.

He's leading the team with a .667 batting average with men in scoring position.

Do teams this bad get MVPs? And does it matter? In a related note; Who's the kindest serial killer of all time? Has to be Eddie Gein, right?

You picking a closer? Why am I not surprised?

Co-MVPs: Votto and Phillips.

He's not our MVP, but Carlos Fisher has been a godsend this year. The walks are a bit troubling, but a high stirkeout rate and his ability to keep the ball in the yard have been huge.

Since the losing hasn't stopped yet, Castellini and Walt should decree that this award not be given.

Take the money saved by not giving this award and give everyone an extra piece of pie at the awards banquet.

I got to give it to BP he's toughed out the injuries missing very little time. He's been the only starting everyday player to battle thru all the adversity and improved his game a bit in the process. His numbers aren't MVP like but battling the injuries, losing and what not he's done a pretty good job overall which is more than any other everyday player.

But of course he was trying to prove to Jpup that we didn't need another big bat. I hope Jpup is able to run across him again this coming offseason. ;)
