Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers took home the National League MVP trophy even though some thought Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers should have won it. Kemp did have better numbers than Braun, but when you play on a third place team that's what happens.
I had Braun winning the title because he carried the Brewers in September and is a clutch player when the Brewers needed him. Kemp was hindered by not playing in meaningful games in September. No matter who one both would have been a good choice. Braun pocketed an extra 100,000 for the MVP win.
