For this series, there was one good game and two not so good ones. There was also some good players and a few not so good ones. When it came down to it, I think only 1 player was an MVPish performer.

Matt Kemp.

He is really turning it around right now. In the last 10 games, he's had 4 home runs and raised his batting average from .242 to .256. In the series against the Giants, he went 3 for 8 with a home run and 2 RBI.

If I'm wrong about naming Kemp the MVPish player, let me know in the comments.

With an actual name.

Not just saying "no".

Because that's not helpful.

That's what Twitter's for.
