April MVPS

1. Blue Vajayjays
Casey McGehee: .338 10/4/14/0
Who needs Ryan Zimmerman when you have this guy? McGehee is a big readon why the Jays are first out of the gate in April. Stolen bases are the only thing keeping this team under 100 points.

2. Hully13
Robinson Cano: .368 17/5/14/2
Everyone was predicting a breakout season and he's delivered so far batting in a run producers spot for the first time in his career.

3. Jefford Nation
Tyler Clippard: 3 Wins, 0.61 ERA, 0.75 WHIP
Clippard barely nudged out Kevin Gregg and Jorge Cantu for the award. Most sports forecasters predicted 3 Nationals wins in the month of April, not 3 from their 7th inning reliever.

4. Joba Hughes
Mark Reynolds: .254 13/7/20/1
The roto gold received no love on draft day. His average might be crap but he excels in every other category.

5. Choo-Choo Train
Ryan Braun: .366 14/5/20/4
As much as I hate giving the team MVP award to their 1st round selection he has done nothing but 'rake' since the opening pitch four weeks ago.

6. Halladays Homies, formly known as Mannywood 2010
Roy Halladay: 4 wins, .82 ERA, .88 WHIP, 28 k's.
We're looking at the major's first 25 game winner since the early 1990's. He's the best pitcher in baseball playing on the best offensive team in baseball. This usally equates to a good season.

7. Ravishing Rick Bo
Carlos Marmol: 0 wins, 3 saves, 19 ks (in 9 innings) .93 ERA, .93 WHIP.
Ryan's man crush is finally starting to pay off. His k rates have always been out of this world but he's now learning not to walk every other batter this season.

8. Fear Franchise
Ubaldo Jimenez: 4 wins, .95 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 25 k's.
I thought Ubaldo would win 18-20 games this year for a very good Colorado baseball club. I didnt predict this start but I can't say he's surprised me. He is the best in baseball at keeping the ball in the park and that's extremely important when half of your starts are in Colorado.

9. Los Hernandez-ez
Vernon Wells: .306 16/7/13/1
He's starting to cool down but Jays fans have to happy with the 7 ding dongs in the month of April. Perhaps he's worth that 120 million dollar contract afterall? Nah, not a chance.

10. Hairy Dingerz
David Price: 3 wins, 2.20 ERA, 1.05 whip. 26 k's.
People tend to forget that he was the first overall pick a few years back and was a 'can't miss prospect'. He's put it all together this year and looks almost unhittable. The general rule in the baseball world is to draft players that Jae Park reaches on one year too early.

11. The Brew Crew
Miguel Cabrera .347 11/4/22/0
Miguel and Kemp are keeping the Brew Crew from have almost zero statistics to speak of. The return of Aaron Hill should start to boost the offense and get this team moving in the right direction.

12. Smell the Glove
Tim Lincecum: 4 wins, 1.00 ERA, .93 WHIP, 32 ks.
From a pitching perspective, Smell the Glove is having a great season.
Hitting wise? Peeeeeeeweuhhhhhhhhhhh! He's a Ryan Howard injury away from finishing last in every category minus stolen bases. Trade for pitching for some ding dongs!
