MVP Monday: Almost Perfect

By Melissa Felkins

This week is a no-brainer. Sure

Angel Pagan

‘s walk-off hit yesterday was nice, but this week

Yusmeiro Petit

stands alone as the MVP of the week. Friday night, he took a perfect game into the 8th inning and was one strike shy of making history before

Eric Chavez

lined a single out to right field. Petit still got the first complete game shutout of his career, and the Giants got the win, so we’ll take it. I’ve liked what I’ve seen so far from him. I’m not sure if he has earned a starting rotation spot yet, after just a few starts, but he’s definitely got our attention. I can imagine if the price is right, we’ll see more of him next season.
