Its no secret, the Red Sox have been hurt all year from Lowell to Ortiz to Drew. Pedroia has been consistent all year hitting in nearly every spot in the order. (Including clean-up over the weekend.) He has been great in the field (6 errors) and good on the base paths (17 SB). He has done everything Francona has asked and kept this line-up going even when people were hurt or slumping or deciding not to play. He has played in 135 of 137 games.
In a year where no one is having an unbelievable offensive year. (Ex. A-rod '07) Why not Pedroia for MVP? By the end of the year Dustin will have similar stats to 2007 NL MVP Jimmy Rollins. He will have a couple of less homers and stolen bases, but could have a batting title and fewer errors. His team looks to be playing October baseball and Dustin plays harder than almost anyone in baseball. With that I say Pedroia for MVP and President. This country needs a third party candidate to shake things up. As I write this the sox are putting a hurting on the O's.
