Mike Trout edged out Alex Bregman to win his third AL MVP award, receiving 17 first-place votes. One of them came from @Ken_Rosenthal
, who explains why he struggled with his vote until the very end.
Mike Trout is named 2019 AL MVP. This is the first time since 2014 that both MVPs come from the same city— Trout and Clayton Kershaw won that year https://t.co/pOfYZ71RHj
Harold Reynolds, to Mike Trout:
“Why are you playing so doggone hard every day? If I had $500 million, I might consider shutting it down a little bit.”
The reaction from Marcus Semien is everything: https://t.co/1zvnDC96D3
Statements from Joe Maddon and hitting coach Jeremy Reed on Mike Trout’s third AL MVP.
Mike Trout got 17 of the 30 first-place votes for AL MVP. Alex Bregman got the other 13.
Mike Trout has 6 seasons of at least 8 WAR (bRef)
Most 8-WAR seasons by a position player is 12 by Babe Ruth
Six 8-WAR seasons isn't shabby though.
It's the same number that Hank Aaron and Stan Musial had in their careers
