Who's the MVP?

So, at the end of a post discussing and ultimately downplaying (correctly, I think) AJ Burnett's Cy Young prospects at this stage of the game (http://blogs.piratesprospects.com/creagh/burnett-and-the-nl-cy-young-chase/), Kevin Creagh at Pirates Prospects says "Andrew McCutchen may be the clubhouse leader for NL MVP, but A.J. Burnett is the Pirates’ team MVP. He has set the tone for this season with his play on and off the field. He is the true stopper that this team has been searching for since 1992." I've also noted a few comments here and there in various BD threads recently to this effect. Just curious how widespread this sentiment may be. I mean, I like AJ and what he's done for the ballclub, and I'll even grant him some intangibles, although in general I don't put much stock in these. Still, team MVP over Cutch? Just can't buy it.
