The official announcement of today’s winner will be at 2 p.m. Until then, here are my thoughts and predictions. Feel free to chime in with your own.


National League MVP

The favorite: Albert Pujols, Cardinals

The contenders: Prince Fielder, Brewers; Hanley Ramirez, Marlins

The dark horses: Derrek Lee, Cubs; Andre Etheir, Dodgers

The (former) Yankee with a chance: Um … Nick Johnson had a .831 OPS. That’s pretty good, right?

Morning analysis:
Unless the guy from yesterday is voting again, this one ought to be unanimous for Pujols. He had a MLB-best 1.101 OPS, MLB-best 47 home runs and – just for fun – even stole 16 bases. If he doesn’t win, it’s CSI-style robbery.

The pick:
It’s Pujols (duh).

The record: 6-for-7 (hit on Coghlan, Greinke, Scioscia, Tracy, Lincecum and Mauer; missed on Bailey)
