NL MVP

Postby gocards300 » Mon Nov 17, 2008 12:56 pm

Although I am a cards fan, I find it hard to vote for an MVP if their team didn't make the playoffs, so I am taking Howard.

thats how everyone thinks, like the heisman winner always seems to come from a national champion contender. it should go to the player who had the biggest impact for their team, not wether they won or lost

How do you have a big impact for your team if you lose?

I agree with Tyler that it shouldn't be based on wether the team won or lost. Unfortunately this usually isn't how it's done. The teams success typically plays a larg impact on who is selected for any award.

GoCards, this is the dumbest question you've ever asked. If a pitcher wins 25 games for a team, but the team finishes with a losing record, that pitcher still played a significant impact on the team.
NO!......Welp!?

Based on what I stated earlier, I think Howard will get it because of the Phillies. Although Pujols had a much, much, much better year.

isn't the voting done prior to the playoffs?

If so, Howard's (lack of) impact on the Phillies winning the WS shouldn't be reflected in the voting, so unfortunately he could win a MVP in a year that wasn't even his best.

When's the annoucement? It's today sometime, right?

Disagree. I don't care if a pitcher wins 50 games, if their team doesn't make the playoffs what good is it? And I know where you live, so watch out for that flaming bag of poo on your doorstep tonight.

How are you valuble (as you spell it) to your team if you don't win, dip shit? Oh sweet you went 8 for 8 with 15 rbi's in the game but we still lost the game, way to go.

if u have some one going 8 for 8 with 15 rbi's obviously they are the most VALUABLE player on your team. when u have 3 other all stars on the team that did just a fraction worse than u then how could u say he deserves it when his team playin well got them the win, not his individual effort

"I see it this way: Someone who doesn't take his team to the playoffs doesn't deserve to win the MVP," Pujols said in Spanish at a news conference organized by the Dominican Republic's sports ministry.
"I'm not impressed with aces of any kind. 95% of the time, they're just bad shots that got lucky and happened to hit the chains. Otherwise, they'd have sailed 50' past the hole." ~ Cydisc
