    Dayn Perry(CBSSports.com): NL MVP Watch

    http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/eye-on-...flies-his-flag

    Dark horse(s)

    Matt Carpenter, Cardinals
    It indeed seems that Molina will win the votes of those inclined to support a Cardinal, but if Molina plays irregularly over the final month of the season and the Cards wind up winning the NL Central, then Carpenter could gain some traction. It would be justified, as he's played good defense in his first season as a second baseman, and he's batting .312/.381/.473 (136 OPS+) while leading the NL in hits and doubles.

    Shin-Soo Choo, Reds
    Like Miguel Cabrera last year, Choo figures to earn some points for his willingness to shift to a more premium position (center field, in his case). With the bat, his 2013 is going swimmingly: .285/.415/.466 with 19 homers from the leadoff spot and 253 times on base, which is good for second in the NL.

    Joey Votto, Reds
    There's some misguided criticism toward Votto regarding his RBI total, but a strong September in tandem with a Reds division title could put him in the mix. He leads the NL with a .430 OBP, and his OPS+ of 152 ranks fifth in the league.

    Dayn Perry clearly hasn't seen as many baseball games as Marty.

    What am I missing here? Why the Marty references? It seems like a good article to me. Regarding the MVP race, Choo and Votto are definitely dark horses. One of them, or both, might explode in September, but that's the only way they'll seriously get into the MVP race.

    Not many games have gone by where Marty hasn't lamented the fact that Votto isn't Miguel Cabrera and leading the world in everything.

    I get that, but regarding the linked article, I don't get the Marty stuff. Choo and Votto are nothing more than dark horse MVP candidates, unless they're on fire the rest of the season. Isn't that what the article implies?

    They both are already serious MVP candidates.

    Joey Votto       155

    Shin-Soo Choo    148
    Matt Carpenter   141
    Yadier Molina    137
    Carlos Gomez     129
