    Will be interesting to see if Trout and Yelich can pull this off despite missing 15-20% of the season.

    I think Bregman would be a fair MVP. Obviously Trout getting hurt is what levels the playing field.

    Agreed. I'd vote for Yelich and Trout but Bellinger and Bregman are deserving as well.

    yea but its probably not close if trout remains healthy lol... when you provide more value then the 2nd best guy and play a month less the award should go to you....

    I wouldn't argue that Trout isn't deserving. But injuries are part of the game and he was injured for a decent chunk of the season. It allowed Bregman to close the gap and the fact he played two very demanding position helps him as well.

    Not necessarily. Especially if you're considering "more value" to be a difference of 0.1 fWAR. I'd pick Trout but would have zero issue with Bregman winning the award. Being healthy enough to play regularly is part of the equation.

    I think Trout and Bellinger will win

    But that's not how I would vote

    1. Bregman
    2. Trout
    3. Semien
    4. Cole
    5. Verlander
    6. Betts
    7. Lynn
    8. Bogarets
    9. Chapman
    10. Springer
    HOM - LeMahieu

    My AL Cy Young Votes would be
    1. Cole
    2. Verlander
    3. Lynn
    4. Minor
    5. Morton

    My NL MVP votes would be

    1. Bellinger
    2. Yelich
    3. deGrom
    4. Marte
    5. Rendon
    6. Scherzer
    7. Story
    8. Arenado
    9. Acuna
    10. Strasburg

    If you put Bregman and Trout next to one another

    Trout - 8.6 fWAR, 8.3 rWAR, 5.62 WPA
    Bregman - 8.5 fWAR, 8.4 rWAR, 4.99 WPA

    But the differences come in net runs created

    Trout
    wRC 136
    DRS - -1
    Positional adjustment - 2.10
    Bsr - 7.1
    Net total runs - 144.20

    Bregman
    wRC+ - 146
    DRS - +5
    Positional Adjustment - 4.58
    Bsr - -2.1
    Net total runs - 153.48

    I tweaked the poll question a bit. Changed it to, "Who deserves to win MVP?

    If you want me to change your vote just let me know.
