Buster Olney at ESPN on the NL MVP candidates:


Why you could pick Anthony Rendon: He has the highest WAR rating of those NL players who will appear in the postseason this year, having played extremely well on both sides of the ball. Rendon is fourth among all third basemen in Defensive Runs Saved, and he has been a master of competitive at-bat, averaging 4.37 pitches per plate appearance. He has a .404 on-base percentage.


Why you wouldn’t pick Rendon: Some of his numbers that typically are girders of an MVP case are underwhelming. Rendon has scored 80 runs, tied for 66th in the big leagues, and has 24 homers; 71 players have more.

I didn't watch the cursed NL game, but my father told me that one of the other hits was a double off the top of the wall.  That was before he hit his 3rd HR.

6-6 5 runs 3 HR 10 RBI today. The second player to do that. Other was Walker Cooper 7/6/1949 for the Reds in a 23-4 win over the Cubs*.

* 6 hits for Cooper  not 6-6...just to clarify.

The dynamics of snake drafts perfectly described in this segment of  "Fantasy Players to Target -Third Basemen," posted today at BP.

Anthony Rendon, Washington Nationals

It’s strange to me how quickly Anthony Rendon has gone from the hot,
young player at this position to just being seen as an average player in
the middle of the pack. As of this writing, the Nationals third baseman
was being selected at the bottom of the top 10 at his position,
jockeying for position with Alex Bregman.
This appears to be great value, as Rendon can contribute to your lineup
in every area. If you’re looking for one loud tool, you can look
elsewhere, but you will find the all-around talent here.

Rendon has never had a BABIP
below .300 nor has he had a strikeout rate above 20 percent. All of
this leads to consistently strong batting averages. You can expect him
to finish right around the .275 mark on a yearly basis. You can also get
home runs, too. I’m generally being cautious with home run totals from
2016, but Rendon’s 20 homers was right on pace with his 2014 season, his
only other full season. The 26-year-old also stole 12 bases, marking
the second time he’s reached the double-digit mark in as many full
seasons. After that, you get to the fact that he’ll be hitting in a
lineup that features Bryce Harper, Trea Turner, Adam Eaton, and Daniel Murphy. He’s among a foursome of himself, Adrian Beltre, Bregman, and José Ramirez all being taken within 15 picks, and he’s the easy choice to me. In fact, he’s easily preferable to Todd Frazier, who’s being taken 20 picks earlier. —Matt Collins

If I felt this run was about to start, I'd get out in front of it with Bregman.
