Crosby for MVP?

Harold Reynolds just pimped our boy Bobby Crosby for MVP this year. Reynolds's heart is in the right place, but I think his head is misguided. Crosby's (a) on the west coast and (b) a shortstop. That last part is relevant because even if Crosby is the most valuable player in the league by some position-neutral metric (like VORP or WARP), it's likely that some left-fielder or first-baseman will put up sexier overall numbers that will seduce a number of writers.
