    Here's the link to Jayson Stark's article, which also provides some important facts:

    This all depends on the outcome of both the East & Central races. If the Brewers fail to make it, Fielder is out of the question, plus he has just 27 hits with runners in scoring position.

    If the Mets win the East, Wright will be a big reason why, and you can just look at his second-half stats to see why. Plus, I've noticed a marked improvement in his defense, too.

    If the Phillies win, Rollins has been sick all year at the top of Philly's lineup. Not only that, he's the only major contributor to that offense who hasn't been either hurt, slumping or both.

    JUST FYI: I plan on resetting the vote in a couple weeks because odds are that a lot of things will change between now and the last 10 or so days of the season.

    Philadelphia isn't winning anything, so vote accordingly.

    If it's a position player, it should be Wright in a walk ... assuming the Brewers don't make the playoffs.

    Eric Byrnes must be on this list.

    But....but....don't you see that Reyes is the only real candidate?!?! He creates havoc on the bases! Every Met would be batting under .200 without him intimidating and distracting pitchers!

    Oh shit...nevermind...he ain't here. :)

    I agree on Byrnes, by the way. No way he wins it, but he belongs on the ballot.

    Awaiting rant from Simo ... wait ... he can't. Hmmm ... what other topics can we start? How about a salary cap debate in MLB? Or comparing MLB to the NFL? What else ... little help?

    I would give Ryan Braun some love, even though he's a rookie. He's hitting .335 with 28 homers and 76 RBIs and didn't come up until May I think. Brewers wouldn't be where they are without. That being said, I'm not sure where they are.

    OK, it's probably impossible to be an MVP when your team is 18 games out or whatever. I voted for Wright.

    Andre Dawson would beg to differ.
