Pirates’ Andrew McCutchen Wins NL MVP Convincingly

The National League MVP was one that had a good group of candidates to select from. There was Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen that led his team to their first playoff berth since 1992. He had a .317 average with 21 homers and 84 RBIs to include him stealing 27 bases and was caught just 10 times. The St. Louis Cardinals had catcher Yadier Molina and he was responsible...

McCutchen got gold, Goldy got robbed

Well, the BBWAA got it wrong. As was very clearly laid out for them in our Editor's Choice Awards , Paul Goldschmidt was the right choice for NL MVP. NOT Andrew McCutchen. This is a Sam Bowie-esque catastrophe , and I aim to rebut the decision of the BBWAA' (that's Baseball Writers' Association of America, you'll soon see baseball loves acronyms). And hopefully...

Andrew McCutchen wins National League MVP Award

Maybe one of the hardest parts about rooting for a franchise that went 20 years in between winning seasons was the false hope. The prospects and players that were supposed to be the ones that could put the Pittsburgh Pirates on their backs and take them back to relevancy. The Chad Hermansens that were supposed to be transcendant talents that never materialized into anything, or the...

Andrew McCutchen: MVP

Andrew McCutchen ran away with the National League Most Valuable Player award, earning 28 of the 30 first-place votes. He is the first Pirate to win the award since Barry Bonds did it in 1992, which of course was the Bucs’ last winning season until this year. It’s sort of a fitting, full-circle type of thing – the beginning of the losing streak was strongly associated with...

McCutchen wins NL MVP, but Molina deserved it

ST. LOUIS -- As many statistics as there are in baseball, at least one more is needed. There needs to be a number to measure the intangibles, those hard-to-quantify factors that can't be found in the box score (or even on fangraphs.com). Otherwise, Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina never will win what he deserved to win Thursday night: The NL MVP award. Instead, Molina finished...

John McCain calls out MVP voter over Goldschmidt vote

MVP voting is always one of those things that no matter how the voting goes, people are going to be outraged over the way a someone voted. Bashing reporters for their voting choices has almost become a new sport, especially since the BBWAA chose to make all of the ballots public. One of the cardinal sins of voting, at least in the eyes of the fans, is for a writer not to give a first...
