So who is gonna win NL MVP? Seems like McCutchen could win if he finishes strong but I would guess Kershaw will get it.
It will probably come down to them and if it does, McCutchen will win it. There is always some stupid writer out there that won't include a pitcher in the MVP vote and the Pirates not collapsing this time is the big story. Narrative, unfortunately, means a lot in the MVP vote. In this case though, at least McCutchen totally would deserve it. At least so far.
I'd have David Wright right up there with them but he has no hope in hell because his teammates aren't good enough.
