NL Andrew McCutcheon
I know I'm really going out on a limb here

I still think Braun has a shot in the NL, especially if he keeps his HR pace up, but McCutcheon can pretty much seal the deal if he can carry the Pirates into the post season.

In the NL it should be McCutcheon, hands down. His WAR is the highest in the NL, and if you took him off that team, they would be a shade of what they are. He's having a fantastic season and he deserves the award (if he keeps it up). Usually making the playoffs is a big factor, but this is the Pirates, and even if they are CLOSE to playoffs, this guy deserves the award.

AL I still think it's Trout. Even if Miggy wins the triple crown, it's even more rare for a player for lead his league in WAR, runs, and SB's, which Trout should accomplish. His defense also is much better than Miggy. Trout missed a month of major league time too. He's the best player on a team with Pujols.
