Guthrie has 10 wins, and could end up with 12-13 if he keeps it up for September/October. No saying how many more starts he has exactly, all depends on the fidgeting of the rotation for the last few weeks of the season now.
Definitely have arguments for Markakis, Scott, and Jones. Wiggy only based on his saving us earlier in the year, but his current stats would never support it. Scott beats him out in average and homeruns, while Wiggy has 2 more RBIs. Jones' numbers are a bit behind both of these guys, though his average is higher than both. Wiggy's sits at .249, which in my opinion would be a sad average to see for a player of the year award. Also, while people bash Jones for his K rate, he actually only has one more than Wigginton (106 to 105) in 3 less at bats. So while both guys need improvement there, the bashing of Jones for his Ks needs to be put on Wigginton as well.
