My interview with Dave Schoenfield discussing pennant races, MVP voting and the playoff format
I had Dave Schoenfield, editor of the Sweet Spot blog on ESPN.com (Pedro Florimon and the Bucs lead today's Top 5) on with me yesterday. We took a tour around the major leagues and looked and the playoff races. We also discussed what is behind the Pirates success and are they the team we thought they would be before the season. Different people have different takes on what MVP means. Does the MVP have to be from a playoff team, and if so where does that put Andrew McCutchen in the race? We finished up talking about the playoff format and whether it needs to be changed.
