Just curious on everybody's perspective on this. Most people argue Mike Trout should be the MVP due to his astounding WAR. Contrary to that, a lot of people also vote Kershaw for Cy Young despite Harvey being better than him.
Also, on a different standpoint, Andrelton Simmons has the highest WAR on the Braves due to his defense, most people would disagree with that statement. Again I'll repeat my question, should WAR be used to determine awards? Also, should defense be neutralized in the voting for MVP?
