Sorry we have been busy… homework, vacation, and I am not guarantying
we will be posting every day.
So a good amount has happened since last time we posted
about 3 months ago and we have a great National League races… And AL East as
A-Rod hit number 600, along with 601, 602, 603, and 604.
Yankees are in first place by 2.5 games, Spain won the World Cup.
The MVP races have changed a lot since we have last posted
which is what this small article will be about. Albert Pujols, Joey Votto, and
Carlos Gonzalez. Gonzo leads the league in average and in RBI’S but will have
to get a couple more homers to gain on Pujols. Votto is up there in all the
categories while Pujols is fading away from the Batting Average competition.
Adrian Gonzalez is also up there with the surprising Padres.
In the AL it’s a three man race with Miguel Cabrera , Josh Hamilton
and Robinson Cano. Hamilton’s average is hovering around .370 and Cabrera is up
there in RBI’s and second in BA. Robby Cano has faded down the past couple
months as he isn’t getting much rest especially with A-Rod out, but now he is
back so expect Cano to do much better down the stretch.
Now for the Cy Young races. In the Senior Circuit, it’s a
very arguable race. Tim Hudson, Roy Halladay, Ubaldo Jimenez, Adam Wainwright,
Mat Latos and Josh Johnson. 3 of those are on my fantasy team…. Hah. So anyways
my vote still goes to Jimenez even though he has faded big time over the past
couple months. His ERA has stayed under 3.00, and has 18 wins. Halladay has
been great too, and valuable but he has a much better offense a better pitching
ballpark than Coors Field. Wainwright was a pitching Triple Crown candidate
until Mat Latos took the ERA lead over. Jimenez has the wins lead and Lincecum
has taken over the strikeout league. All these pitchers are great, but only one
In the AL there are less candidates, being CC Sabathia,
David Price, and Felix Hernandez. CC is most likely going to get his 20th
win in a couple of starts and there is a possibility of 21-23 wins on the
season. Felix has less than half the amount of wins than CC but is better in
EVERY other category. So to finish this off, I will tell you that Felix
Hernandez will win the Cy Young Award though I would like CC Sabathia to win it
Thank you for reading, bye!
