Why Morneau shouldn't be MVP

Con arguments against Justin as the MVP:

1. He is in the top 10 in the Triple Crown stats but he is only 19th in the stat most correlated to scoring runs, OBP

2. Jermaine Dye and ARod have more homeruns than Justin and nearly as many RBIs.

3. Dye has an OPS of 1.020 and Justin’s is .948. And Dye plays a more difficult and important defensive position.

4. Justin may be the best offensive player on his team he arguably is the 3rd most valuable player on the Twins behind Mauer and Santana.
