Molina Equals MVP
October 1st 2012 23:15
Being a huge Stl Cardinals I'm probably extremely bias here, but I don't care. Yadier Molina should be the NL MVP. He definitely is the most important. The team is totally different without him in there. Best defensive player in all of baseball; he has the best arm and handles the pitching staff perfectly.
Now this year he has added offense to his arsenal. Before he was a liability in the batter's box, and now he is 5th in average in the NL at .317. 22 home runs and 75 rbi's are career highs. Buster Posey is considered the lead candidate and his numbers are a little better(.337, 23, 100). It's the same situation as in the AL between Cabrera and Trout. Molina and Trout are barely behind in the big stats but both play way better defense. Yadier has also proved he can steal a base with 12 compared to Posey's 1.
Both the Giants and Red Birds will make playoffs making the argument nonexistent. I don't see Molina winning it but he definitely deserves some love, a lot of it.
