Could Acuna win NL MVP Award as rookie?

For a while, I was riding the Cardinals’ Matt Carpenter NL MVP Award bandwagon (if only because it serves great homemade salsa). Lately, it feels like Christian Yelich’s late-season push for the Brew Crew might be enough to propel him to the honor. But we’ve still got 2 1/2 weeks left, and that’s plenty of time for a hot hitter to leave a lasting impression. The assumption all along is that the NL MVP Award is going to be won with the benefit of a home-stretch surge.

Which brings us back to Acuna, whose NL MVP Award argument is rooted in the fact that he’s carried the Braves on his back at this most crucial juncture of the year.

Who Ya Got? An MVP Primer

The MVP goes to the best player on the best team — except when it doesn’t.
Players from bad teams never win the MVP — except when they do.
MVPs are players who show up for work every day — except when they’re not.
MVP voters hate second basemen like an underemployed son-in-law…

Mike Trout Is Compiling a Historic Season and the Angels Are Wasting It Again

“This June is on track to be the best month of Trout’s career.”

Bouncing and pounding
My head the backboard
I need release to let it flow
And I was ready
Really ready
I was ready to explode

Oh wasted time
