Posey deserves it, but Yadi and Ruiz deserve it more this season. Posey is a top catcher, but this season Molina and Ruiz are better. Panda over Wright is BS too. Sandoval hasn't played the full season.
Also it's not a bad idea to take into account a player's 2nd half from the previous year as well as any post season heroics. Yadi > Posey here too, though Posey had the unfortunate injury.
That's why even as a Rangers fan I think Napoli deserves it over Mauer, Wieters, and AJ in the AL. Nap was incredible in the 2nd half and post season.
CAN'T BELIEVE NO ONE WILL GIVE ME A COURTESY POST SO I DON'T OMG DOUBLE POST
Ok, the MInnesota Twins can hit. I'm not saying they're the Yankees or Rangers or Angels here but they have some guys that can collectively ruin a pitcher's day. If only they could get some pitching they'd be a contender. Diamond and Liriano aren't horrible, but you need more than two decent starters.
