I probably would've voted for Matt Kemp of the Dodgers by a hair over Ryan Braun of the Brewers as National League MVP. They were really close. Braun won. Braun had the pressure of a divisional race. Kemp had the pressure of a mediocre team with an owner having serious legal problems. It was rumored several times during the season that the Dodgers wouldn't make their payroll. Yet the Dodgers finished three games over .500. Kemp hit 39 homers & stole 40 bases in 2011. He's says he's going for 50 & 50 in 2012. I think he's serious.
