    NL Player of the Month - Choo?

    I think he's a good candidate. Although Upton will get a lot of talk because of his HR's and Atlanta's record.

    Choo
    Hits - 1st in NL with 26
    Doubles - tied for 10th with 6
    OBP - 1st at .521
    Average - 3rd at .366
    OPS - tied for 3rd at 1.127
    Runs - tied for 2nd with 17

    They're not power numbers. But he's the reason the Reds offense is clicking.

    Upton is 1st in SLG, 1st in OPS, and 1st in WAR.

    Choo has been amazing, but Upton has been better.

    Offensively, you could argue that Choo had the best April in all of MLB. Unfortunately for him, those Harper and Upton guys play a pretty great corner OF to Choo's below average CF.

    Should be 1) Upton 2) Harper 3) Choo. Solid company he's keeping, though.

    Not a chance. It'll be Upton and he'll run away with it. Right or wrong...it's what'll happen.

    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG

    Upton has been on the cover of SI Swimsuit for 2 years running. She's a lock.
