The lowdown: With all due respect to Kurt Munoz, Jim Lee, and Trenidad Pujols, this is a two-horse race. This is almost too close to call because both players have excellent numbers and play different positions, but the incredibly slight nod goes to Beltre because of his insane WHIP/ERA combo that are second to only Carl Sosa in all of baseball.
