    Lots of baseball left to be played.

    I'll vote at the end of September!

    Yep. Adam Dunn had a bad August, and so did the Reds.

    Any questions?

    Brandon Phillips.

    Some stupid mental errors, but the best mix of speed/stick/defense we have.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Rich Aurilla and Ryan Freel CO-MVP's.

    They did no wrong this year and played every position well.

    I think the Reds were a few games over .500 with Ryan starting.

    I say Aaron Harang.

    He's one of the most dependable guys in the league and he eats innings. I don't know where we'd be without him on top of the rotation.

    Adam Dunn is certainly at the top of the the list as well.

    I've also got to throw my vote in for Harang. On offense I have to say Dunn, although a full season from EE may have made it close.

    The title made me think this was to predict next year's MVP.

    It has to be Brandon Phillips, who thought when we signed him we would get this kind of offensive production?

    Edit: honorable mention goes to David Ross

    As far as pitching goes: Arroyo and Harang are the reason we stuck around as long as we did.

    Adam Dunn. Aaron Harang. No other choices really.

    Harang tops Dunn, IMO. Not by a whole lot, but if I had to choose only one of them, I'd pick Harang. Dunn is a hitting/OBP machine but his defense is enough of a liability to exclude him from being MVP (note Dunn is still an excellent player, even with that flaw). Also Harang had an outstanding year.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    06 mvp: Harang, but hopefully it is to be determined by someone getting hot asap and carrying us the rest of the way. 07 mvp: Barry Zito. Wishful thinking I just saw a sick stat, that in his career Zito is 84-5 when he gets 4 or more runs of support in a start. With our offense I like those odds.

    Re: Who's your Reds MVP in '07

    My vote goes to Harang. He's pitched well and even when he's having an off night he still finds a way to keep us in the game. He's progressed beyond where he was last year (at least that is my perception) and grown in confidence and poise on the mound. Beating Carpenter in that 1-0 game was a demonstration of how much he's developed. He's had a number of purely spectacular performances on the mound this year.

    Phillips is worthy of consideration. He's brought good D and a nice bat to the line up when everybody expected him to be crap. He's had some base running blunders and very untimley errors that set him back a bit, IMO.

    Honerable mentions: Hatteburg, EE and Ross. Definatley had some memorable contributions. EE I expect to see keep it up. Ross is a question mark since this year is so out of the norm for him. Hatt has been simply amazing at finding a way to get onbase. He's been pretty solid at 1B dealing with the early year throwing circus that was Lopez & EE. His big time slump latley has hurt his consideration for MVP.

    Dunn: This is not a knock against Dunn in any way, but I didn't consider him for MVP only because Dunn does what Dunn does (and he does it very well). I guess he's a victem of his own success in my eyes. Since he's looks to be doing what he's done for the past 2 seasons, he's got to do something special to be MVP, IMO. Of course, for what he provides the team in offense he's going to have to do something pretty amazing to top it so maybe I'm not being reasonable. The defensive issues hurt his cause also.
