As a sibling to the "AL mvp" thread, let's discuss who on Earth will win the NL MVP.
In any ordinary year, Ryan Braun would be the easy leader in the clubhouse, especially with the Brewers going on a monumental tear down the stretch to get within striking distance of the wild card. That said, he's going to have an unbelievably difficult time winning over voters due to his shenanigans.
So is it Braun? Buster Posey? Andrew McCutchen who's Pirates are now likely to finish under .500? Joey Votto despite missing 2 months? Matt Kemp also missing significant time? Jay Bruce? David Wright?
Seems as if there simply is not a very good choice. My guess is still Buster Posey, but this might be the most wide-open MVP race ever.
