Comments on: Who is your NL MVP? News and commentary on the world of sports. Wed, 07 Sep 2011 16:33:12 +0000 hourly 1 By: Chad Chad Sat, 15 Sep 2007 04:57:37 +0000 Even though Chase Utley missed one month with a broken hand, he is the top MVP candidate. His numbers are outstanding and is among the tops in most catagories, but his leadership, glove/defense and clutch performances set him apart from all contenders. This guy took a pitch on the hand that broke bones. His comback was remarkable. Chase was Charlie Manuel’s right hand man/asst. mgr. while hurt and present in the dugout. He studies more film than any MLB I can think of, plus his unselfishness and team play and leadership also set him apart from the rest. Numbers plus intangibles equals Utley as MVP.
