Back to work and happily so, right? No? Let's change that right now. Avert your gaze from that daunting spreadsheet for a few minutes and soak up today's set of MLB-related questions, collectively and individually sure to put into your day a charge similar to that fifth cup of coffee you just banged down.1) Should a pitcher ever be considered for a league's MVP award?
Justin Verlander's season for Detroit has people talking, but he's got a teammate -- Miguel Cabrera -- going monster every day. Is every-fifth-day dominance enough to take the prize?

2) If the A's move to San Jose, will you go to fewer games?
This is assuming you're one of the faithful fans who goes to games in Oakland. Is that assuming too much? 3) Will the Giants sell out the rest of their home schedule?
The streak likely won't end this weekend against the Dodgers, but what if they're cooked by the time that Rockies series rolls around later in the month?4) How old is too old to wear a jersey with another man's name on the back?
Something seems wrong about a 37-year-old paying to rock a 24-year-old's gear. Proposed cutoff: 16.5) Runner at third, one out, tie game, fly ball to right field. If it's your squad, who do you want camped under that ball and ready to throw to the plate?
Ichiro Suzuki can still bring it. Locally, it's hard to ignore Nasty Nate Schierholtz. Hunter Pence? Torii Hunter? Justin Upton?Don't forget to leave your thoughts below, folks. Let us know how you'd handle today's Daily 5. Reader with the best answers wins a jumbo Chick-O-Stick.
