Funny, most people here consider Justin Morneau the Twins MVP.

Mauer ahead of Hafner? That's odd, considering Hafner's been involved with 153 of the Indians runs this year (72 R, 81 RBI), while Mauer has 102 (52 R, 50 RBI). Not to mention the .637 SLG and 1.075 OPS.

Defense pushed Mauer over the top for me. He's a Gold Glove caliber catcher while Hafner of course doesn't play defense. Mauer also gets bonus points for putting up those type of numbers as a catcher. For a catcher to be leading the league in AVG and OBP is incredible.

Fair enough, thats why I like Vernon Wells in the top 3. The defense is just incredible.

 

I'm surprised Papi is so low. His AVG isn't stellar this year, but he has a ton of RBI, including a few game winners. He's Mr. Clutch.
