2008 Major League Baseball Awards

With the MLB regular season just about to end and the playoffs fast approaching, the “experts” at Sports of Boston submitted their picks for who should win the top individual honors for the season.

SoB’s Pete gives his case for Ryan Howard as the NL MVP: “He is the reason the Phillies are in the playoffs. Look at his September: .352 with 11 HR and 32 RBI. He produced when it counted and raised his average from .234 to .251 in one month.”

SoB’s Mike offers his take on the NL MVP race, giving the nod to Albert Pujols: “Cardinals are nowhere near the playoff race without him.”

SoB’s Geoff gives reasons Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia should take home the AL MVP: “With Carlos Quentin out, Josh Hamiliton not up to par in the 2nd half and A-Rod not bringing the Yanks to the playoffs…Dustin is a sure bet. He’s a batting title candidate, leads the league in hits, a great fielder, and an all-around good club house guy.”
