Angels outfielder Mike Trout’s MVP candidacy is being touted largely because of his major league-leading 10.7 WAR rating.
Here’s how it works: Award 5 points to the league leader in each of these categories—wins, earned-run average, strikeouts, WHIP and WAR—and scale down from there: 4 points for second, 3 points for third, 2 points for fourth and 1 point for fifth. Then total the points for each pitcher and divide it by five, for the number of categories, to get their average point total.
I don't think they want to give to JV two years in a row, and getting embarrassed in the WS doesn't help.
If you dig even deeper into the stats, looking at quality of defense, park factors, and quality of opponents, I expect Verlander looks even stronger.
