I’m not completely sold on Clayton Kershaw for NL Cy Young. I am, however, pretty adamant about Matt Kemp for NL MVP. He’s currently the National League leader in fWAR, and it’s not particularly close. He’s notched 30+ homers and 40+ steals this season (including a three-run shot tonight), and he’s second in the NL in wRC+. He gets the edge over Ryan Braun because he’s held his own in centerfield — whereas Braun’s a below-average defender in left field (which is a significantly easier position to play).
