The NL MVP is a no-brainer, but things aren’t as clear in the American League. Scroll to the bottom of the page for the next Question of the Week, and read on for the answers to this question:
“Miguel Cabrera. A hitting machine and a very unnoticed glove, Cabrera has a Tigers triple crown and is leading Detroit into a playoff spot.
“Scott Podsednik from the Chicago White Sox. He has been hitting well (over .300), and he has been stealing and is all out the best player on the White Sox right now.
I think Joe Mauer should win the AL MVP. Joe Mauer is a man of many talents. He can hit, he can drive in runs (82 RBIs), he can crush the ball. He can also get on base (53 walks and .429 OBP). And let's not forget, he did this coming off the DL in the beginning of the season.
“Adam Lind is getting ignored because he’s on a losing team, but he has 30 homers and is hitting .300.”
“I think it should be Miguel Cabrera from the Detroit Tigers. He is having a great year and thanks to him the Tigers are atop the AL Central.”
“I think that Joe Mauer has to be the AL MVP. He has a ridiculous batting average and has finally found his power stroke this year. He also is one of the best defensive catchers in the game. The best player at the toughest position to play definitely gets my vote.”
-Eric, North Carolina
“I think Joe Mauer should win it because he has a lot of homers and a good batting average."
“I think Mark Teixeira should win. He’s a switch hitter, is great on defense, and has 35 home runs.”
-Joe, New Jersey
“To me Derek Jeter is more than just MVP. He just beat Lou Gehrig's record of the most hits in a career on the Yanks. He has brought the Yankees to the top of MLB. If Derek Jeter doesn't win he still has my pick with the Yanks to win the title.”
“I’m going to go against the grain and picking Kendry Morales. The Angels have the best offense in the league and he is second on the team in average and first in home runs and RBIs. He’s hitting .300 with runners in scoring position and two outs. He’s clutch and great defensively.”
