If you stopped watching the Arizona Diamondbacks and their mediocre season, we can't blame you.
But allow us to point something out -- this morning, Paul Goldschmidt is hitting .301, and is first in the National League in home runs, RBI, slugging percentage, and OPS, and is third in the NL in runs and walks.
Goldie for MVP?
Obviously, the MVP award usually goes to a guy on a team that's good (speaking of which, can you imagine how awful the Diamondbacks would be without him?).
It seems a little weird not to consider the guy who's leading the league in almost all of the traditional batting statistics isn't the MVP.
If the season ended today (it does end a couple weeks from now) do you think Goldschmidt should be the MVP?
