Just sayin' why not JBruce in a year where there are no clear-cut favorites?
If Ryan Braun were on a good team he'd be running away with it. Or...would he not be because he's "tainted?"
The only position player MVP in either league to bat less than .300 since 1989 was A-Rod in 2003; he hit .298. I was going with the trend, not who I'd vote for. (You didn't ask that.) You answered your own question about Braun. Besides, he's not really on a contending team.
I think Votto has more of a shot at winning it than Bruce does....

I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.
Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.
