Congratulations to Albert Pujols! Pujols now has as many MMP awards as all other first basemen combined (Rod Carew '77, Will Clark '89 and Mark McGwire '98). The ratio will change once we vote on the '20s and '30s but will even Lou Gehrig be able to catch Pujols for appearances and awards?

Congratulations to Zack Greinke who is this year's pitching MMP. This is Greinke's second pitching MMP as he also won for 2015 with the LA Dodgers. Greinke is only the second pitcher to win this award from each league, joining Roger Clemens (Red Sox, Astros).
   6. Chris Fluit Posted: November 01, 2017 at 06:37 PM (#5568830)
Congratulations to Joe Mauer on being named the AL MMP. This is Mauer's 2nd AL MMP (he tied for the 2006 award with his teammate Johan Santana) and his third time being name the top position player in the AL.
   7. Chris Fluit Posted: November 01, 2017 at 06:39 PM (#5568832)
Finally, congratulations to Tim Lincecum for winning the NL pitching MMP. This marks a back-to-back victory for Timmy, joining an illustrious list of consecutive winners that includes Mathewson, Roberts, Koufax, Gibson, Seaver, Hershiser, Maddux, Johnson and Kershaw.
