Accidentally stumbled upon your tumblr, accidentally caught a glipse of your MVP list, and now, on purpose, I'll be calling you a retard for making such an awful list. Young 5th? Bautista, the best player in baseball, 6th? I guess you don't know much about stats. My question is: why are you so bad at this?
Oh no! Someone disagrees with my predictions for MVP! Boo fucking hoo. Just because my opinion differs from yours I must know absolutely nothing about stats! Didn’t realize when you hit .336, 86 RBI, etc that you’re a shitty player. He’s hitting the lights out for his first place team and without him I do not think they would be where they are. He’s carried the team in the absence of Hamilton for a number of games. I’m not saying that Bautista isn’t influential to his team’s success but historically the MVP is awarded to a player on a team that makes the post season. This is probably one of the closest MVP races of recent years and the margin between each player is very slim, you’d have more of an arguement point if I had him say 10th in the list.
And the fact that you say he is the “best player in baseball” is merely an opinion as is my whole list.
There has to be some sort of stat to pertain to this but I cannot find it. This week both Fransisco Liriano and Justin Verlander had starts where they went at least 7 IP hitless. They have both thrown no hitters this season. Barely missed their 2nd of the year. Just weird. Love baseball.
