Got to figure Miggy and Buster win the MVP awards tonight though Mike Trout and Ryan Braun are deserving picks.

Games We Play
I would vote for Posey and Trout, but my second votes would be McCutchen and Cano. Cano will never palce ahead of Cabrera and I'm OK with that. But I hate that McCutchen is rarely mentioned.
McCutchen got on base more than Braun, hit for a higher average, and did it in a much tougher park. Braun had the edge in homers and as a result, SLG, but he plays in a place where its very easy to hit homers. Braun had 17 homers on the road, McCutchen had 16. Neither of them are wizards in the field, but in that case, give me the CF every day of the week.
I feel like I wrote almost the exact same thing last year for Kemp over Braun. I have no idea why Braun is so well-received, and that's before we even mention the other thing...
