The Eternal Question

Some MVP talk at SportsWorld.

And some will vote Cespedes. I have a friend who thinks the MVP should be Cespedes. When I asked why, he explained it this way: The baseball season is a story, and Cespedes is the protagonist. “The season is not about the Nationals,” he says. “They’re done. Yes, the season is about the Cubs, but Rizzo isn’t the dominant figure there. You could vote for Kris Bryant. You could vote for Jake Arrieta. You could vote for Joe Maddon. The Mets were floundering and then Cespedes came along. I look at it like a novel. There are greater wizards than Harry Potter, but the book is about him. This season is about Yoenis Cespedes and he should be MVP.”

What does the MVP actually reward?
