The Most Valuable Player award in both the American and National League look like they boil down to a two-horse race this season.

In the National League the race appears to be between the Brewers Ryan Braun, the reigning 2011 NL MVP, and World Series champion Buster Posey.
For the other candidates in both leagues, it looks like it may be a race for a third place finish in the voting.
Here's a quick look at the top candidates in both leagues.
