    But, I guess the Cy Young only takes the regular season into account, and Sabathia had a hell of a season.
    The voting takes place before the postseason as well.

    Fenway is definitley uber advantage for the hitters but isn't Jacobs field known as more of a hitters park too?

    Maybe I'm messed up because traditionally the Tribe have had loaded offensive clubs and Jacobs seems like more of an offensive park than it really is.

    Where is everyone on NL MVP?

    Sounds like Rollins is going to win. Arguments can be made for Rollins, Holliday, Wright, and even Fielder. I'm expecting a close vote.

    Both rated as offensive parks this season....Fenway the highest, while the Jake was 4th. Park factors can be inconsistent from year to year, however.

    Don't forget the support that Beckett has compared to C.C. i.e. Manny, Papi, Papelbon, the rest of the bullpen etc...

    You could make the argument Rollins wasn't even the most valuable player on his own team.

    Wright or Holliday. I'd lean Wright because his D is awesome and he didn't play half his games at Coors.

    Even with the massive differential in his home/road splits?

    Home .376/.435/.722
    Away .301/.374/.485

    Don't get me wrong--Holliday had an incredible year. I'm just curious on your reasoning. Is it because the Mets missed the playoffs?

    Yes. My reasoning is based on the Mets collapse down the stretch. Otherwise, my vote goes to Wright.

    Is that really Wright's fault though? He was filthy in the last two months of the season, by far his best two months at the plate of the year.

    August .394/.516/.657
    September .352/.432/.602
