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.

Ronald Acuna hits two leadoff homers | MLB.com

I watched both Braves games yesterday. Acuna put on a real showcase of his skills. I know Juan Soto is getting some well deserved attention. Having watched the two play, Soto will be the better hitter but Acuna will be the better overall player. In pretty much equal playing time this year, bWAR currently gives Acuna the edge.

Ronald Acuna hits first homer | MLB.com

He showed off his power. Two ABs later he showed off his wheels beating out an infield hit.
