There's been some talk about whether Justin Verlander should win AL MVP. While he's having a great year (19-5, 2.28 ERA), I don't think the pitcher should get MVP unless there are no position players with great seasons. I think the Cy Young is for starting pitchers. When you look at the AL, Granderson, Elsbury, and Gonzales are all having MVP-caliber seasons.
Let the starting pitcher get the Cy Young, leave the MVP to the everday players.
