1) Had Votto stayed healthy, he's have walked away with the MVP.
2) Cozart's final numbers (.246/ .288/ .399) were close, and he should have been in the running for ROY, IMO, but I didn't see Wade Miley's season or the call-up of the wunderkiknd in Washington. I nailed the Mesoraco post, though I missed the amount of time it took.
3) Rolen did play well when healthy (in the second half). And, between them, Frazier and Francisco were close to 800, though not quite over it. They just missed the 30 HR as well.
In my mind you got Bailey and Ludwick doing well correct, and Cueto and Mess wrong.
I was way more wrong on Mes than Cueto. Going into last year, I expected Cueto to be our third best performer in the rotation, which he clearly proved me wrong on, but I did expect Mes to be our 5th best bat, which he most certainly was not.
