• Matt Kemp -- Leads the league in offensive WAR. Has an outside shot at the Triple Crown. Is on pace to become the Dodgers' second member in the 30-30 Club. (The other? Raul Mondesi. Who else?) Sits at No. 1 in our ESPN MVP predictor rankings. The question is, does that make Kemp an MVP? Remember, he has done all this for a team that hasn't spent a day above .500 since April. "Can't do it," one NL exec said. "Can't pick him. His team's not even close to being in the race."
Talk about a left-handed compliment. And a strong NL East, Philly-loving bias.
