Yesterday, Bleacher Report’s Featured Columnists celebrated the turn to July—a symbolic midpoint of the MLB season—with the results of a mock AL MVP vote.

Today we take a look at the most valuable players in the National League.

If you thought the AL results were close, this race was even tighter. In a system where a first-place vote is worth 14 points, the top two finishers were separated by only three points.

Meanwhile, the third-place finisher actually got the most first-place votes, yet finished only four points ahead of the fourth-highest vote-getter.

The top 10 finishers are highlighted in this slideshow, complete as always with commentary from a different FC for every player.

If your favorite player isn’t among the leaders, be sure to click through to the full results. A whopping 37 players were named on at least one of the 23 ballots, so chances are he got at least a couple votes.

Thanks to everyone who voted and submitted commentary!

Note: I sent this survey only to the Featured Columnists who have been active in previous polls. If you are a new FC or you have changed your mind about wanting to participate, send me a message and I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop for next time!
