BoSox's Betts beats out AL field for MVP

BoSox's Betts beats out AL field for MVP

He received 29 of 30 first-place votes. "Being in this spot, you never know if you'll ever make it back".

Yelich's outstanding first season in Milwaukee topped MVP finalists Nolan Arenado and Javier Baez.

That's because not only did Betts win the American League MVP, but he also won a World Series, a Silver Slugger and a Gold Glove.

Despite being an MVP sleeper for most of the season, Yelich made his case with a stellar second-half performance, including a September surge that helped the Brewers secure their third division title in franchise history. After the All-Star break Yelich hit.367 with a.449 OBP and.770 slugging percentage.

Yelich led the Brewers to the NL Championship Series, where they fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers in seven games.

Yelich almost became the NL's first Triple Crown victor since Joe Medwick in 1937, finishing two homers shy of Arenado and one RBI back of Baez.

Trump Is Questioning Mike Pence's Loyalty
Overseas in Papua New Guinea, Pence told reporters that he and Trump discussed the story and had a "good laugh" about it. "The New York Times did a phony story, as usual, about my relationship with [Pence]", Trump tweeted Saturday morning.

The outfielder was traded to Milwaukee from the Miami Marlins, in exchange for a handful of prospects. Yelich is from Westlake Village, California, near the site of a recent mass shooting and the Southern California wildfires. A late slump likely eliminating Ramirez from contention, though his stellar season still saw him hit.270 with 39 home runs while stealing 34 bases.

Baez' success came despite the fifth-most strikeouts in the league as the free swinger was able to finally put a full season of hitting together after showing flashes in his first two full seasons.

Yelich's late-season heroics allowed him to pull away in what appeared to be a murky MVP race entering the season's final month. It was the fourth time Trout has finished second in MVP balloting, and the seventh consecutive year in which he has finished in the top five for the AL MVP. He also had 47 doubles, five triples, 129 runs and 80 RBIs, and his 1.078 OPS was second in Major League Baseball behind only Trout (1.088). Dustin Pedroia (2008) was the last Boston player to take home the honor, and Mo Vaughn (1995) is the only other member of the Red Sox to win the award over the last 32 years.

The Rockies have now gone without an MVP victor since 1997 when Larry Walker took home the award.

He led the NL in batting average (.326), slugging percentage (.598), and OPS (1.000).
