Ryan Braun Wins NL MVP...

Not even going to bother posting his numbers, his season was good but Matt Kemp's was special. The fact that Prince Fielder finished third in the voting tells you all you need to know about how important Braun was to the Brewers season....

Ryan Braun WAR - 7.7
Prince Fielder WAR - 5.2
Matt Kemp WAR - 10.0(highest for an OF since Barry Bonds in 2004)
and the next closest position player on the Dodgers..........
Jamey Carrol - 1.8 WAR
LOL. Really shows how valuable Braun was when he had Fielder right up there next to him(and it doesn't show how good Fielder was in September either, which helped get them to the playoffs).
Kemp is clearly the most valuable player even though they didn't make the playoffs. Ugh, award is such a joke.
It's whatever though. Everyone, including Braun, knows Kemp was robbed. Dodgers fans should still be happy though. They have one of the best players in baseball locked up for most of the next decade with one of the best contracts in baseball.
