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.

Cubs star Kris Bryant has a chance to be a very unique MVP | FOX Sports

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.

But while Bryant is only in his second season and Musial is a Hall of Famer, the two could end up sharing a unique distinction.

Musial is the only player to win an MVP award after a season in which he started 30 games in both the infield and outfield, according to STATS LLC.

Bryant could become the second.

Votto ‘reaches out’ to Mays, Musial, Jeter

“I was striking out a tremendous amount,” he said. “I was striking out far too much and to me that was not going to stand the test of time. Again, I looked at Willie, I looked at Stan and I looked at Derek. Willie and Derek stood out to me the most. Both of them struck out during the first two months almost the same amount they struck out the last four months. That means they struck out so much that they said, ‘OK, I’m not doing that any more’ and their seasons ended up being pretty standard for them. They didn’t speak to me directly, but they spoke to me through their Baseball-Reference page, through their game logs and their game experience. And I’m grateful for that and hope that in the future I get to do that for a younger player.”
