SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) – After enduring a gruesome collision at home plate last season that resulted in a broken leg and torn ligaments in his ankle, Posey has done more than exceed our wildest expectations in 2012 and is all but a lock to win the Comeback Player of the Year Award.
But Posey deserves more than that.
His man competition—and so far the favorite to take home the MVP honors at the season’s end—is Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder Andrew McCutchen. And while it’s difficult to formulate an argument stating that someone other than McCutchen deserves the award at the moment, there are some legitimate reasons why the gap between Posey and McCutchen is closer than you might think.
