i don't believe for a second any pitcher should win the mvp. i just think jurrjens is in contention for the cy young if the season ended today. of course anything can happen in the 2nd half.

the phillies have a better starting rotation than the braves, and anyone that tells you otherwise is insane. i personally think jurrjens and hanson are just as dominant as the phillies' big three, but there's only two of them, and hudson and lowe are on the decline and beachy, while good for a rookie, is a rookie and thus inconsistent.

that said you'll have a hard time convincing me the braves don't have the 2nd best rotation in the nl. after all neither team's offense is setting the world on fire and both have had a lot of games lost to key players, yet they have the 1st and 3rd best records in baseball. you don't do that without tremendous pitching.
