Chicago Cubs: So who comes out on top in the end?
What does the abbreviation MVP stand for? Most Valuable Player. In my mind, no one has been more valuable to their team than Javier Baez.
Think about it: where would the Cubs be without him? Truth be told, they probably wouldn’t be in first place. Kris Bryant has had a disappointing injury-plagued season, and even though Anthony Rizzo has returned to form, his slow start caused issues, leaving a huge hole in the lineup.
Don’t get me wrong, Christian Yelich is having a great season and he deserves to be recognized for it, but the most valuable player to his team this season has been Javier Baez, and because of that, he should bring home National League MVP honors.
