Tristan H. Cockcroft: (10:59 AM ET ) Good morning everyone! Let's get right to your fantasy baseball questions... Chris from NYC: I am curious how you can name Howard mvp over Soriano etc.??? Regards, Chris Tristan H. Cockcroft: (11:02 AM ET ) "MVP" is such a subjective thing, and when I'm deciding it for fantasy, I want a guy who was clearly one of the best in the game, but it's also worth taking into account WHEN he offered his best performances, and when in the draft he was picked. Both guys were well worthy of the honor, no doubt, but Ryan Howard went in the fourth or fifth round in most leagues. Soriano went in the second, maybe the late first in some. Howard finished higher on the Player Rater, too.
