griffey has continued to play very well
but dunn is a real long shot for 50

A-Rod hit 41 tonight, but really, Andruw has the only shot at 50.

Andruw is on pace for 53

Yeah, I guess I was a little off with Dunn but I still got A-Rod right...maybe I'm a year off on my Dunn prediction.

That is true about A-Rod...but next year I'm going with the guy from Texas...Mark Texeira, or however you spell his name. Although I do reserve the right to change my mind at the beginning of the season .

Looks like Andruw Jones will win it. As a long time Atlanta fan, color me shocked as well... Andruw was painted as the next big thing in this city since 1999 and we've all been rolling our eyes when they say 'this is the year'. Well, this is the year. He's gonna win the HR race and NL MVP. Amazing.

Andruw very well might with the MVP. How has his D been? I noticed he doesn't have many steals and thought his range might be down a bit. I think that could be his edge over Pujols and Lee as neither are slouches defensively but he plays a premium position. Anyway, damn Ortiz is going on a home run binge and could very well finish above A-Rod in homers. I need at least one of my projections to win and I am SOL with Dunn.

His defense has been the gold standard. He glides on air when he catches a ball. His steals (only 3 this year) are way down as he has become a power hitter and Bobby Cox never uses him to steal anymore even though he almost had 30 one year. I guess they don't want him to get injured?

The reason why Andruw's steals are down is because he simply doesn't even attempt them much anymore. They have others guys who can steal the bases. He could steal a lot more than he has, if they required it.

Imagine Lee's numbers if the Cubs played the Cards more.

Andruw Jones will win it, I didn't see that one coming... he had a huge spring, but then started slow out the gate but he's hit the 50 HR mark, kudos to him. The average could still use some work though ;0

Good to hear Andruw's D is still where it was. I did see him make a nice catch the other night which I believe saved the game. I would be extremely shocked if he doesn't win barring a late season collapse and either Pujols or Lee going on an absolute tear.
