I thought Guillermo Barros Schelotto was horribly overlooked for the All-Star Game.
Still, it seemed that GBS was going to get a nice consolation prize from many writers - the league MVP title. But Landon Donovan is making a play for consideration.
It's not coincidental, either. He's quite deliberate about it. He mentioned that the title was a goal of his before the year started.
Here's what LD had to say about chasing down GBS for the MVP.
"Is he the front-runner? I don’t know. You guys [reporters] determine that stuff. Whatever. I’m going to do my part. I want to make it clear that I can be the MVP. I have five more games to do that. Obviously, making the playoffs will help that a lot. I’m going to keep going. I know it’s other people’s decision. If I keep playing the way I’m doing, in my mind, I am."
What about our readers? Who would be your MVP pick and why?
