Pirates' Andrew McCutchen Runs Away With SB Nation's 2013 NL Best Player Award

USA TODAY Sports

Pittsburgh Pirates' outfielder Andrew McCutchen has a .395/.458/.825 career line vs the Washington Nationals, with six doubles, two triples and 13 HRs in 30 games and 131 plate appearances against the Nats. The 27-year-old outfielder pretty much ran away with the SB Nation Award for the NL's Best Player.

The SB Nation's baseball writers voted on our own version of 2013's NL MVP. We made our choices for the NL's Best Player in 2013 a few weeks back and the results of the voting were published today. If you haven't had a chance to check out the full results, including the AL Awards, the post by Steven Goldman at SBNation.com is well worth a look...

Federal Baseball's Doghouse and I (Patrick Reddington), filled out two ballots to choose the NL's Best Player for 2013. For transparency's sake, our ballots are included below... In 2013, Andrew McCutchen, who received 34 of 36 1st place votes cast, was just 7 for 28 with three home runs in seven games against the Nationals, but the Pirates' 27-year-old, '05 1st Round pick has a .395/.458/.825 career line vs the Nats with six doubles, two triples and 13 HRs in 30 games and 131 plate appearances. We're impressed, already! We're impressed. McCutchen was almost a runaway winner in the SB Nation's voting...

• Notes: Did I put Yadier Molina too high? He didn't even make Doghouse's list, though the estimable Doghouse took advantage of the rules for the voting by choosing pitchers in his Top 10, while I went with position players only in mine. Remove the pitchers and the only difference in our Top 5 position players is my inclusion of Yadier Molina over Doghouse's choice of Hunter Pence. The real D.C.-based controversy, however, Doghouse goes with Ian Desmond as his pick in the 9th spot while I went with Jayson Werth 10th. If you had to pick one National to make your Top 10, who would it have been? Werth finished higher in the overall vote, receiving 4th, 5th, 7th and two 9th place votes, one of which was mine. Doghouse was one of three people to vote for Desmond 9th. They were the only two Nats to receive any votes...
