    Depends on who it is and who is defined as "best." You've long maintained that's Trout. But if the Dodgers traded Kershaw to the Angels for Trout, the Angels would have a much better chance to reach their goal this season. In that scenario, you traded the best player and got better. Everything's relative.

    I don't care if Cesar Izturis is the best player on the planet. I just care that the people voting for the Most Valuable Player award are voting to give it to the guy who is the best player in the league in that given year. Not the best player on a winning team, or any other made up idea about what valuable means because it makes for a better story to write in their newspaper. It is flat out impossible to make a rational argument that someone other than the best player is more valuable than the best player. You can decide who is the best player however you want, but that player should be your MVP award winner regardless of the team he played on.

    It's not impossible. I've made the case several times in different ways. You're choosing to ignore it.

    I think we're probably at an "agree to disagree" impasse. Maybe we should chalk it up to that and focus on rooting for the Reds tonight.

    Yes, it is impossible to be the best and have someone be better. Impossible. That is why I am ignoring your case.

    It's OK. Many people are wrong and don't realize it.
