Buster Posey A Legit MVP Candidate

#455341872 / Believe it or not, Buster Posey is a legit NL MVP candidate. Here are the reasons why 1. He is playing for a playoff bound team. Fair or not the BBWAA is famous for putting to much emphasis on the MVP being a part of a playoff team. Only one player since 2008 (Albert Pujols 2008) has won an MVP and not played in the payoffs.

San Francisco Giants: Will Buster Posey Carry the Giants?

Throughout the ups and downs of the 2014 baseball season, one thing remained a constant. Buster Posey, the San Francisco Giants best and most well-known player, had been pretty average by the standard that he set for himself.
