Fixing the All-Time MVP List

“Yes, Mays was the best player in his league just about every year from 1954–1966; but you’re not a victim of outright theft when the MVP goes to guys like Koufax, Robinson, Aaron, and Banks. That said, you are a victim when you see the likes of Maury Wills (1962) and Ken Boyer (1964) claim an award that should rightfully be yours. The fleet-footed Wills could’ve stolen 200 bases that year and not been as valuable as Mays.”

MLB announces an “All-MLB” team

Major League Baseball announced today that it is launching an official “All-MLB Team,” recognizing the top performances by players in the 2019 regular season.  The inaugural All-MLB choices will be announced on Tuesday, December 10 during the Baseball Winter Meetings in San Diego.

Like most of MLB’s more recent awards and honors, the All-MLB team will be selected via a combination of a fan vote and a panel of experts. As for the fan vote, starting today and continuing through December 3 at 5:00 PM Eastern, fans may vote for their 2019 All-MLB choices. Like the other fan votes, fans can vote more than once — once every 24 hours on this thing — at MLB.com. No one at MLB ever tells you that that’s a nifty way of driving traffic to a page sponsored by a single, exclusive paid sponsor — in this case Scotts — but such is business in the 21st century.

The non-fan-voting portion of this will be decided by a “decorated panel of media members, broadcasters, former players and other officials throughout the game.” The panel vote will be weighted equally to the fan vote. There will be a first team and a second team All-MLB squad.
