Walter Johnson is the pitching MMP. Third in a row for the Big Train. Only Bob Gibson can say the same.

Bill James is the NL MMP.

Joe Williams is the Negro League MMP. Second win overall for Smokey Joe as he also won in 1912.

George Burns is the NL position player MMP. It doesn't look like much of a lead on these results (he's ahead of Rabbit Maranville by a mere 2 pts) but a several voters mentioned that Burns was their top NL position player even though he was in a non-ballot spot and that was enough to create an insurmountable lead.
