Trout ties Honus Wagner for 2nd place in most MMP trophies awarded. Mays is #1 with 7 wins.

Congratulations to Mike Trout on his unanimous selection as the 2016 MMP. This is the fourth MMP award for Trout.
And the first that he's won unanimously.

Kris Bryant is our NL MMP. Bryant is the fourth Cub to win this award, joining Ernie Banks, Ron Santo and Ryne Sandberg. Bryant is also the second consecutive winner from the Las Vegas Little League, following his childhood teammate Bryce Harper.

At least we made Kate Upton happy. Justin Verlander is our 2016 pitching MMP. This is the second such award for Verlander, having previously won in 2012.

DL, I have a question about the tally. You have Kyle Hendricks receiving 2 votes for 19 points but I only see him on one ballot. Did I miss something?

I'll wait until I hear back from DL to make it official but Max Scherzer is our presumptive NL pitcher of the year. Scherzer was the top NL pitcher on four of eight ballots and mentioned in the top three on six of seven (including off-ballot notations). Three other pitchers were listed first- once each for Kershaw, Lester and Hendricks- while one ballot did not include any NL pitchers. That's a pretty clear lead for Mighty Max.

I marked a Kinsler vote for Hendricks because they were side-by-side up until that point. Thanks for catching it.
