Hanley Ramirez Objectively Top 5 MVP Candidate

I realize that's not much of a bold statement, but by using WPA to measure offensive production and zone ratings plus a position adjustment for defense, Hanley's in a pack between 4th and 6th with Chipper Jones and Matt Holliday. What's impressive about Hanley's 2008 season is that the zone ratings show him as an average shortstop in the field. As Marlins' fans, have you noticed an improvement? Is he making fewer throwing mistakes or just tracking down more balls? On the negative side, Mike Jacobs rates as below replacement level even though he has an .814 OPS -- evidently he just can't play defense. You guys agree? Oh, and Dan Uggla comes in at #12 and Cody Ross comes in at #14 overall in the NL.
