    Lightbulb Your 2017 AL MVP?

    With the season coming to a close I'm interested in sparking another intelligent baseball debate. Or you could just pick an option from the poll I created.

    Who do you believe is most deserving of winning the 2017 AL MVP? I was trying to think of 5 players to include in the poll but only four came to mind who I truly thought had a chance at 1st place votes so I included an "other" option for those who feel differently. Feel free to list the player's name & explain your reasoning if you wish.

    Mike Trout - (114 GP, 402 AB) .306 avg/.442 OBP/.629 slg% 33 HR, 72 RBI, 1.071 OPS, 22 SB (6.7 bWAR/6.7 fWAR)
    Additional Notes: Leads league in OBP, slg% & OPS. Missed roughly 45 games but still qualifies. 6th straight 6+ WAR season

    Jose Altuve - (153 GP, 590 AB) .346 avg/.410 OBP/.547 slg% 24 HR, 81 RBI, .957 OPS, 32 SB (8.4 bWAR/7.5 fWAR)
    Additional Notes: 4th straight 200-hit season. Leads league in bWAR, avg & hits. Runner-up in stolen bases & fWAR

    Aaron Judge - (155 GP, 542 AB) .284 avg/.422 OBP/.627 slg% 52 HR, 114 RBI, 1.049 OPS, 9 SB (8.0 bWAR/8.1 fWAR)
    Additional Notes: Single season rookie HR leader. Leads league in HR, runs, walks & fWAR. Runner up in bWAR, slg%, RBI & OPS

    Jose Ramirez - (152 GP, 585 AB) .318 avg/.374 OBP/.583 slg% 29 HR, 83 RBI, .957 OPS, 17 SB (6.6 bWAR/6.3 fWAR)
    Additional Notes: Leads league in XBH & doubles. Top 5 in avg, runs, slg%, bWAR, fWAR & OPS

    Other - Lindor, Betts, Simmons, Abreu, Dozier, Kluber, Sale, Upton, Sanchez, etc. (anyone other than the aforementioned 4 players)
    Explain:

    It's between judge altuve and Ramirez.

    I'd vote judge because it's my team but honestly, ah screw it, it's judge.

    To answer the MVP question:
    Judge should and will win the AL MVP

    This is the conclusion I have come to:
    1. Judge & Altuve have been equally productive, just in different ways. Altuve with contact & speed, Judge with the long ball & producing runs. Altuve leads the majors in bWAR (8.4), Judge leads the majors with fWAR (8.2).
    2. Ultimately I feel Judge has been slightly more valuable to his team than Altuve. The Astros were going to win the division with or without Altuve and while the Yankees would still have likely grabbed a Wild Card spot without Judge, I feel he gave them the push for home field advantage.
    3. As icing on the cake, Judge broke some long standing records along the way (rookie HR record, franchise record for home game HR's by a Yankees player...probably some monthly records too) and did it all as a rookie

    I believe Judge will win...chicks dig the long ball. I think Altuve gets snubbed on this one. He was steady start to finish and particularly in the absence of Correa he kept them afloat through all the injuries the Astros had, Judge will win on a blistering first half for the ages and a strong final month, the slump of July and August will be forgotten.

    because 200+ K's (yeah his other stats are nice) is a sign of an mvp. give me Altuve.

    I compared judge to Mcgwires 87 season. he only leads mark in walks and strikeouts. did McGwire win the mvp? he came in sixth. different times yeah, but altuve with correa gone some time and Houston pitchers spending time on DL, he has my vote

    With games left to play, Judge also has: 28 more runs, 8 more stolen bases, 51 more walks, .049 better OBP, almost same BA/SLG. Judge has a better rookie season.

    Ugh, this argument again. Trout led the AL in strikeouts in 2014 and won the MVP.
    Ks don't matter anymore, especially when Judge also led the league in walks and has a higher on-base percentage than Altuve.
