Well we are eight days thru the American League season and we have numerous players making their mark early this season. I have created a formula that I use to determine the MVP of the League. I do not include pitchers, I will not get into the argument about why I do this just know that I only rate everyday players.

This formula accounts for everything a player can do at the plate and on the base paths. Next to a players name you will see a point total this point total represents what I fell a players worth is for his club on any given day.
