Clayton Kershaw wins NL MVP

Clayton Kershaw became the first pitcher to win the National League Most Valuable Player award
in nearly a half-century, coasting to an easy victory Thursday.

Kershaw, who also took home the NL Cy Young award for the third time Wednesday, is the first NL
pitcher to sweep both awards since Bob Gibson in 1968.

The Dodgers ace beat out Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton and Pittsburgh outfielder Andrew
McCutchen
for the honor announced Thursday. Kershaw got 18 of 30 first-place votes and 355
points in balloting by members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Mike Trout wins AL MVP

Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout was named the unanimous 2014 American League MVP
on Thursday night.

Trout finished second in MVP voting both of his first two seasons, losing to Detroit's Miguel
Cabrera. He joins Mickey Mantle as the only players who finished as MVP runner-up in consecutive
seasons before winning in the following season.

Detroit Tigers slugger Victor Martinez and Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley finished
[a distant] second and third, respectively.

@fbaezer,

what pisses me off is them giving the MVP to a starting a pitcher.
a reliever i can almost understand, but a starter??

kershaw appeared in 27 regular season games.
granted, he won 21 of them... but he had absolutely nothing to do with LA's other 135 games...

@fbaezer,

i don't think anyone (including A-Rod himself) thought he would make it through the season without breaking down...

Jake Arrieta beats out Dodgers' duo for NL Cy Young Award

Bolstered by a historic second half, Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta won the National League
Cy Young Award on Wednesday after going 22-6 with a 1.77 ERA in 2015.

Arrieta, 29, overtook early favorite Zack Greinke, winning his final 13 starts. His only post-All-Star
break defeat came when the Cubs were no-hit by the Philadelphia Phillies in late July. Arrieta
went 14-1 with a 0.75 ERA over the final three months, the lowest second-half ERA in history for
a starting pitcher (minimum 12 starts).

@Region Philbis,
I disagree, but heck. He did have a great season!

The Dodgers are happy to have saved a million dollar bonus due to Greinke, had he won the Cy Young Award.

Anad now you're 2/2 in the Cy Young predictions.

Donaldson named American League MVP

Josh Donaldson was named the American League's Most Valuable Player on Thursday,
becoming the first member of the Toronto Blue Jays to win the MVP in nearly 30 years.

Acquired in an offseason trade with the Oakland Athletics, Donaldson was a spark plug
for Toronto's potent offensive attack. The Blue Jays led the majors in a myriad of
offensive categories including runs scored (891), home runs (232), doubles (308), total
bases (2,518) and RBIs (852).

A fifth-year third baseman, Donaldson led the AL in RBIs with 123 and was third in the
AL in home runs (41). His 8.8 WAR was the third-best in the majors.

Harper reels in NL MVP

Bryce Harper's monster regular season has made him the youngest unanimous
MVP in baseball history.

Harper beat out fellow finalists Paul Goldschmidt of the Arizona Diamondbacks
and Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds for the award. He tallied 420 points to
finish 186 points ahead of Goldschmidt, who finished second.

In garnering all 30 first-place votes, Harper became just the seventh unanimous
MVP in National League history.

@Region Philbis,
I guess both winners were a cinch, as we both predicted.

(And I still think McCutchen is the MLB player who makes the most difference in his team).

@Region Philbis,
AL MVP:
1. David Ortiz
(Not only because of his numbers, but because of his leadership and example)
2. José Altuve
3. Zach Britton

(I think Mike Trout is going to get a lot of votes, just because he's Mike Trout)

AL CY:
1. Rick Porcello
2. J.A. Happ
3. Zach Britton

NL MVP:
1. Kris Bryant
2. Daniel Murphy
3. Anthony Rizzo

NL CY:
1. Max Scherzer
2. Jon Lester
3. Kyle Hendricks

(I think Bryant is a cinch: good season + a press crush on him; but for the Cy Young, the two Cubs pitchers will get into the other's way... I'd personally give it to Hendricks)

AL ROY
1. Gary Sánchez
2. Michael Fulmer
3. Max Kepler

Fulmer was more impressive, but Gary Sánchez plays for the NYY.

NL ROY
1. Corey Seager
2. Seung Oh
3. Kenta Maeda

This is a no contest, really.

3. Tyler Naquin


NL ROY
1. Corey Seager
2. Trea Turner
3. Kenta Maeda

I am 1/2
