Clayton Kershaw should win the 2013 NL MVP Award.
Debate Rounds (3)
I think Kershaw should win the award because he gave his team the best chance to win I think the Most Valuable player should be one who gives one team the best chance to win by preventing runs with a 1.89 ERA he can gives his team a fighting chance to win each start.
I will concede Paul Goldschimdt has aggregated quite the season as well but he has his flaws. Posting a WAR of only 5.9 he has not always given his team a chance to win although he had an MVP season last year he has been plagued by inconsistecy down the stretch of 2013 .
"he has shown us a numerous amount of times that he can get his team out of a pickle and squeak out a win every day o the week."
This statement is completely false. When the D-Backs are in a pickle it is Paul Goldschmidt who is the first to falter. Goldshmidt's weighted runs created (wRC) is 65. which doesn't even make him the most clutch FIRST BASEMAN in the NL. whereas Clayton Kershaw is a effective tool day in and day out.
Thank you for taking the time out of your day for this debate.
