Predicting the AL & NL MVP Award Winner

We’re back ladies and gentleman and the biggest ticket on the menu for today is the American League and National League MVP awards being announced on MLB Network. The Baseball Writers Association of America picked these players before the end of the regular season so keep in mind that, and not that they need it whatsoever, the heroics of the postseason for players like Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo were not a factor in these votes. Before these votes and winners are announced I wanted to take a stab at predicting who I thought would win the award, not necessarily who I think should and shouldn’t win the award mind you.

American League Finalists
Jose Altuve, Astros
Mookie Betts, Red Sox
Mike Trout, Angels

In the American League this is, has been and looks like it will be the Mike Trout show for the foreseeable future. I believe Mookie Betts of the Boston Red Sox will give Trout a run for his money in another close vote but I think Trout takes it home for the last place Angels.

National League Finalists
Kris Bryant, Cubs
Daniel Murphy, Nationals
Corey Seager, Dodgers

In a not-so-close vote in the National League the Chicago Cubs will have another MVP and his name is Kris Bryant. Bryant is one of the best players on the planet right now and he will be seen with his World Series ring in one hand and MVP trophy in the other tonight on MLB Network. Stay tuned.
