  1. As I have said before I think Uggla and Ramirez probably deserve the award just slightly more than Ryan Zimmerman of the Nationals but I think Zimmerman will end up winning the award because so many candidates from the Marlins will split votes. I also think that the race is so close that an argument for the top 3 in any order could be made.

    I'm not exactly unbiased in this one.
    I do think he deserves it.

    I agree with Chris that a strong argument could be made for a number of players, but we have to make a choice. As much as I like the upside of Zimmerman, I would have to vote for Uggla if I were asked to vote. He seemed to be a bit more consistent as a hitter and a solid second baseman. Forget defensive stats, I just liked the way he played the game.

    Should be Ramirez hands-down. Best offensive stats, toughest defensive position. AVG + SLG + OBP equal to or greater than Uggla + Zimmerman, and SLG only .003 behind Fielder. Barfield shouldn't even be in the mix. Johnson didn't even pitch enough to qualify for the ERA title. Take away Saito's saves and he still has a great season, but no one would even consider him.

    Ramirez should be the unanimous choice.

    I'd pick Ramirez-Zimmerman-Uggla.

    If I have anything to say, believe me, I will say it.

    Somebody's obviously suffering from humor deprivation.

    Your response indicates otherwise.

    I gave it back to you. ... it was a chance to write "schwanz".
  12. It seems that most people care more about the American League
