I’ve heard that some people don’t like seeing pitchers win the MVP award.  They think that they shouldn’t win it because they have the Cy Young award.  I don’t see why people think pitchers shouldn’t win the MVP award.  MVP does mean most valuable player.  So if the pitcher has such an incredible year and dominates everyone like Justin Verlander, I think they deserve it.  The MVP isn’t specifically for non pitchers.  Hitters have an award called the Hank Aaron award.  This is given out to the top hitters.  So you could say the same that the batters have an award for hitting.  If you are the most valuable player it means you contribute the most to your team to help them win.  Verlander did just that with 24 wins, 5 losses, and 2.40 ERA.
