Mike Schmidt is looking like a great choice for NL MVP award after the 12th week of the season. He leads the NL in HR and RBI and is in the top ten in batting average. Joe Morgan is also having a great season so far (2nd in batting and RBI and top ten in HR). Tom Seaver and Steve Carlton look like they'll be competing for the Cy Young Award. The league standings haven't changed. It seems like early in the week the division leaders start to falter only to do well in the weekend games and get their leads back. The Reds are 10 1/2 games ahead of the Dodgers and the Mets are 3 games up on the Phillies.
