I hope that this day off on Monday will give the Padres a chance to regroup and get things under control because we really need an MVP for winning series again. In the last series, it was a tight race between Ian Kennedy, Alexi Amarista, and Matt Kemp with Kennedy coming out on top with 35% of the votes over Amarista's 28% and Kemp's 27%.
The only change in points I had was adding a point value for a complete game. Only reason I added it was because Tyson Ross got one. That's usually how things work. Someone does something and you're like "hey, I never thought of that" and you change some things so you can do it. Or something like that.

So, who was this series' MVP? I'm sure a huge percent of votes will go to Tyson Ross and his complete game in the only Padres win of the series on Saturday night. He even added some offense with an RBI triple in the 9th. For the sake of competition, I'll throw in Justin Upton and Melvin Upton Jr. for contributions to the offense. And what about Clint Barmes? He had 3 hits including 2 doubles and 2 RBI in the Padres lone victory.
The choice is yours. Vote for who you feel should be this series' MVP.
