Chicago Cubs ace Jon Lester was the runner-up with one first-place vote, while teammate Kyle Hendricks came in third with two
first-place votes. The other two first-place votes went to the Los Angeles Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw, who finished fifth overall in voting.

Both my Cy Young picks were on target (with a trifecta for the NL).
Curiously, Verlander was never on my radar (or Region's, it seems).

3/4

Porcello, a 27-year-old right-hander, received only eight first-place votes compared to 14 for Verlander.
But Porcello got 18 second-place votes and ranked among the top three on 28 of 30 ballots. Porcello finished
with 137 points to Verlander's 132, marking the second-closest election since 1970, when voters were permitted
to select more than one pitcher.

Cleveland Indians ace Corey Kluber finished third, while Orioles closer Zach Britton finished fourth and earned
five first-place votes.

@fbaezer,

yeah, i thought Verlander had a good year, but not a great one... 16-9, 3.04, 254 K's...
he was lucky he got that many first place votes, imo...

@Region Philbis,
Gotta agree with you.

Verlander won the popular vote but Porcello won in the Electoral College.

Back when I was following baseball, a bit ago now, I avoided Porcello. So, I offer him cheers and congratulations.

I'll be back to sports for the near future, given my tense interest in the world cataclysm, not that I don't have agita', but sports seem suddenly sane.

on AL MVP runner-up Mookie Betts --

Quote:
Betts became only the second 23-year-old ever to record at least 200 hits (he had 214), 40 doubles (41), 25 home runs (31) and 25 stolen bases (26), joining current Red Sox teammate Hanley Ramirez in 2007 with the Florida Marlins. And unlike Ramirez, he ranked as the best defender at his position, leading all players with 32 defensive runs saved.

the sawx should do whatever it takes to keep this kid in bahstin...

I totally missed this one.

I still think Mike Trout gets a lot of votes just because he's Mike Trout.

Soooo...

4/6 this year.
Below average.

@Region Philbis,
I specially think both Sale and Scherzer have more than a fair chance.

@fbaezer,

Sale has come back to earth in the second half.
the strikeout total is impressive, but he's been giving up way too many HR's for an elite pitcher.
cleveland in particular seems to have his number...
