Two for two.
Will Angels’ Mike Trout be AL MVP runner-up again despite another stellar season? - The Orange County Register
I hope not. I love Mookie Betts, who had a great year. I’d vote for Trout.

As you may have heard, some very important election results are just around the corner: The MVP will be announced in just a couple of weeks! (Wait… what did you think I meant?)
This isn’t a “news” item, per se, but wanted to alert NY/NJ-area primates to a fun event taking place Nov. 10. Stop by if you’re in the area!

The auto magnate launches one hell of a marketing campaign; shenanigans and scandal involving the sport’s two biggest stars; the birth of the MVP award.

The View is Much Better When You’re the Lead Dog: Mike Trout Closes in on Another Second-Place MVP Finish
Williams. Musial. Pujols. It looks like Trout is about to join some very exclusive company.

Black players don’t claim MVPs in the American League. Hispanic players are ignored by National League voters. Has an ugly bias influenced the MVP vote?

You know part of the story - but not the most galling part.

We take Mike Trout’s greatness for granted.

Mike Trout is a few “Mike Trout” games away from notching his second 10-WAR season. Combined, the rest of major league baseball has zero.
Trout’s career has essentially been one long milestone to this point, so marking another 10-WAR season probably doesn’t warrant a plaque in his personal trophy room (though there’s plenty of room where his multiple MVPs should be).

We should be in the middle of the Mike Trout M.V.P. era.

Has anyone else tried to quantify the value of position flexibility? I’ve investigated the topic a little myself for my WAR system for the simulation league I play in. Despite some effort I’ve always ended up using WAR without any additional adjustment.

As you may have read, some smart people are making a case for a reliever winning the Cy Young (and/or MVP) Award. How is this a thing in 2016?
Hint: It’s not. Not really. Writers gotta write. Beasts need to be fed. Zach Britton for Cy Young isn’t a thing (at least it shouldn’t be)
Know what is a thing?
Justin Verlander is very good again.
