I don’t want to beat a dead horse. Frankly, I don’t want to beat any horses. I do, however, feel a deep need to perform my civic duty and illuminate some additional reasons for the swift and generous resigning of Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp to long term contracts.

Their sample sizes are large enough, their track records are strong enough and their trajectories are clear enough. This was all made so painfully apparent as the NL MVP voting came in today.
