Last season, Ryan Braun won the NL MVP award, barely edging out Matt Kemp of the Dodgers. Many people, including the staff of this site, thought the award was Kemp's to lose. Alas, it wasn't to be after Braun's Brewers won the NL Central. Things could be a little different this year, with Braun's season clouded by steroid speculation after a failed test that was later overturned and the loss of his main hitting buddy in the Brewers order, Prince Fielder. Favorites: Ryan Braun and Matt Kemp were the two favorites last season, and they're going to be contenders for the award again this year. Joey Votto of the Reds just got a huge contract extension, and it could be argued that he was just as good during the 2011 season as he was during his 2010 MVP season. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Justin Upton of the Arizona Diamondbacks, who is getting better and better as his career goes on and is going to win this award one of these days.

Opening day win fun for Dodgers, Magic

SAN DIEGO With the team ownership situation extremely close to be resolved, Dodgers players are hoping they can put the trauma of 2011 behind them and just concentrate on 2012. Not likely to happen. Not yet, anyway. Not when a group including Los Angeles icon Earvin "Magic" Johnson is the new ownership team in waiting. And not when embattled, and still current, owner...

The Top Five for 2012

Seeing that the season is here and the top five players are almost consensus top five players, I decided to combine the top 5 into one post. Key Stats: Jose Bautista has 97 home runs in the last two seasons. That is 18 more than the next best player in baseball (Albert Pujols).
