If Bruce continues to hit and finishes near the top in HRs/RBIs and his OPS is in the .900s he will absolutely be a serious contender for MVP when you consider how the Reds played sans Votto. Especially when you consider he is has a .960 OPS post ASG which was right around the time Votto died.
I think Jay's recent play would count more in the voters eyes of the Reds were actually in a tight race right now. Their lead is likely going to be held against him.
