Yadier Molina has to be in MVP discussions. Grant it, he only has 4 HRs and 39 RBIs, but he's tied for the league lead in hits and leading the ML with a .367 BA as of last night's 3 for 3 performance. Breaking down his production, while his production has been incredible in the heart of the Cardinals lineup, you can also place the team's success on it's pitching and the man calling these ballgames and leading the Card's pitching staff is none Yadier himself. While his overall power numbers aren't representative of a true power hitting MVP (i.e., Kemp, Votto, Goldschmidt, etc), his value to his own team is so much more than any other player to their own team, respectively, in my opinion.

I definitely think Molina should be in the NL MVP discussion. He certainly has been raking so far this season, and the work he does with the Cards' pitchers is outstanding.

I don't play fantasy either, but I do have a prediction app that I use while I'm watching a game

No, I don't think so.  In the German language, the word tolles has, a whole nother meaning. Like, stupid / crazy.

David Ortiz - Hall of Fame worthy or not? 

I'm voting no because, while he has put up great numbers throughout his career, he barely played the field, especially during his hay days with Boston. Hall of Fame should account for at the plate and on the field. That said, while I loved Edgar Martinez, I find it tough for him to make the HoF for the same reason.

As a diehard Tribe fan, and with all of their solid offseason moves, I could see the Tribe being the 2013 Cinderella story in baseball--the 2013 edition of of the 2012 Nationals. Thoughts?

I am not sure this year. But, I do think either the Indians or Royals will fight the Tigers down the stretch.

In your opinion, who do you think has the nastiest strike out pitch?

The nastiest would be Dickey's knuckle. My reasoning is that if you only had Verlander throwing his fastball and had no other pitches, he would get rocked.  Same for Mo's cutter.

Knuckleball pitchers are always the trump for nasty pitches.
