Matsui - probable HR improvement over last year, RBI's should rise too. Good average to boot (.280-.290)

Floyd - injury risk, but probably a little left in the tank

Bernie - sliding fast

Bernie is sliding fast? His 2003 was bad, but he'll be healthy this year now that he's DHing. In 2002, he was an MVP candidate.

I'd rank them as groundhog did as well.

I concur that DHing should help Bernie somewhat, but even still, I'd go Matsui, Floyd, Williams

19 HRs and 102 RBIs is not MVP type numbers.

I'd say that someone who finished in the top ten in MVP voting is an MVP candidate, yeah. And he finished 10th.

There's a difference between getting a vote and finishing in the top ten in voting. That means that the sportswriters thought he was one of the ten most valuable players in the AL that year. Maybe only the top 5 in voting is an MVP candidate. Maybe it's only the top 3. I don't know, but top 10 seems pretty good to me. "Top 10 finishes in the MVP voting" is a pretty common measure when Hall of Fame season comes around.
