               i won't argue if either of the two gets the award.

I used to think it belonged to Altuve but Judge leads in HR / RBI in the counting stats, but also in OBP / SLG / wOBA / wRC+ and tied in Fangraphs WAR.

It should go to Judge.

Good point, but I discount runs / RBI since are largely dependent on what others' do, rather than the player himself.

as great the seasons Judge & Altuve are having, Trout is still the leader in OBP & SLG.

Mike Trout has a genuinely massive cock.

Trout's the leader in WPA and it ain't close.  Altuve is 2nd.  (Judge is 28th.)

I'm probably the biggest Trout fan out there, and feel he should have 5 or so MVPs at this point (even during Miggy Triple Crown year)........it's unfortunate he got hurt this year.

I just think what Judge is doing as a rookie is insane 50 HR / 125 R / 120 BB - only done by Ruth / Mantle / McGwire / Bonds.............he is also a good defender and baserunner as well.

I understand the value Altuve provides with his numbers relative to his position, but I believe Judge's edge in the statistical categories he's leading in outweighs it.

I think MVP should be "best player" since MVP is so subjective and writers just make up shit to vote for who they want, but, in this case, I think he kind of fits that mold too.

I give it to Judge. He is a rookie for crying out loud. He has also scored more runs and has a better OPS than Altuve.

                     ;) ;) ;) ;) over here we pay men millions of dollars to throw hard projectiles at other men holding wooden clubs trying to hit the projectile into a large field of play,, if he is so lucky to hit said projectile aka a ball, he can now traverse his way around a four bag system known as a diamond. if he is very skilled and hits the ball over a distant wall he can now traverse his way safely around the diamond without impedance of the 9 fielders trying to stop his journey around said base path. this is known as a four bagger or home run.

Baseballs been around so fucking long there are so many weird records and shit. Even if football had the longevity I donít think it would be as quirky.
