Dodgers' Bellinger beats Brewers' Yelich for NL MVP

The NL MVP Inside how writers from The Athletic voted

Mike Trout, meanwhile, entered 2019 as the best overall player in the game, the greatest player of his generation and among the most prolific hitters in history.

And still, nobody did it better in the American League.

This year Trout took 17 of the 30 first-place votes to defeat the Houston Astros' Alex Bregman.

Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Cody Bellinger was uncovered as the victor subsequent to getting 19 of 30 ahead of everyone else cast a ballot from the Baseball Writers Association of America. Bregman was the runner-up with 13 first-place votes and 335 points, and Oakland Athletics shortstop Marcus Semien was a distant third with 228 points.

Had Yelich won, we're sure Dodgers fans would be none too pleased about it.

Trout had season-ending foot surgery in September while the Angels languished to a fourth-place finish. This year, he led the majors with a.438 on-base percentage and the AL with a.645 slugging percentage while batting.291 with 45 homers (second in the AL) and 104 RBIs. He led the league in on-base percentage, slugging and OPS in winning the MVP for the third time in six seasons.

Alleged gunman charged in high school football game shooting
When the shots rang out, panicked spectators and some of the players knocked down a fence in their haste to escape the field. Dozens were sent running for their lives Friday night after gunfire erupted at a New Jersey high school football game.

Asked if he thought the early end to his year might cost him the MVP award, Trout said, "It definitely did". He joins historic names in Jimmie Foxx, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, and Alex Rodriguex.

Going forward, there's a much bigger question surrounding Rendon than whether he deserves to win MVP: Where will he play in 2020? Only 10 other players have won three or more MVPs, and only Stan Musial compiled three of them at a younger age. The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office said the 27-year-old died after choking on his vomit with a toxic mix of alcohol and the painkillers fentanyl and oxycodone in his body. Major League Baseball is cooperating with a federal investigation after Eric Kay, a 24-year employee of the Angels' PR department, told the Drug Enforcement Agency he had provided opioids to Skaggs and used them with the pitcher for years, according to ESPN. I was playing probably a month with (the injury), and it was to the point where I couldn't play anymore. He is the Dodgers' first MVP since Clayton Kershaw in 2014 and their first position player win the award since Kirk Gibson in 1988.

Bellinger teared up after learning he'd been chosen, saying it was the first time he had cried since the death of his first dog, Angel the golden retriever.

Bellinger and Yelich finished tied in FanGraphs wins above replacement with 7.8 apiece. Like Yelich, Bellinger increased his game to another level and merits the acknowledgment.

I think this is only a small part of the reason that many West Coast players get snubbed in the MVP voting.

Advanced metrics showed both races to be tight. He won a Gold Glove after moving to the outfield. "The feeing that you have, why would you ever not want to receive this?"
