The Battle for Midland MVP is more intense than you might think

OKbet Safe Gambling news.There's a debate about MVP ownership almost every year, after all, there's not just one player in every season, but we never seem to have faced a situation this year – a showdown between a good two-knife runner and a top batter. Yes, the scramble between los Angeles Angels last season's Ml.D. League MVP winner Shohei Ohtani and New York Yankees' ace outfielder Aaron Judge sparked a lot of discussion.

Because Shohei Ohtani is so good, he can even be said to be the best two-knife runner after Babe Ruth, the "god of baseball", and in between, his appearance may be epic. But is it because he has done something that no one else can do, and he can't give the MVP to someone other than him? For example, Judge, who is pounding the American League single-season home run record?

Alyson Footer, the host of MLB, asked such a question, while several analysts gave their insights.

Mike Petriello: It's fair that Judge is at a disadvantage because he didn't shoot. Being a pitcher is difficult, especially a top pitcher, but Otani is very good at pitching and he's also an elite batter. Maybe many people have become accustomed to this, but shouldn't we still think it's a crazy thing?

Ford: That's right, but can we really give Otani an MVP every year just because he can do two things well?

Sarah Langs: If Shohei Ohtani doesn't achieve elite level in either of these two, that's a different story.

Petrillo: Of course, to say something very moderate, it makes perfect sense that either of these two deserves to be MVP. I'm not going to exclude Otani because he's not doing well, or just because Judge can't shoot, I have my own preferences, but they're certainly all excellent.

Anthony Castrovince: On the one hand, voting for anyone other than Otani will normalize Otani's unique skills, and I don't want that at all to be normal, because Otani is a natural monster, and although his batting performance is not the same as last year, his pitching is much better than last year. For me, only some truly historical, unworldly performance can outweigh the value that Otani offers, and that's exactly what Jachi has.

Lance: Yeah, Otani pitched better than last year, he's in the top five for his excellent batting percentage, but Judge also had a great percussion performance, which is different from his performance last year, so it also creates a freshness.

Ford: We all have our own definition of MVP, and I tend to think that way — what happens to his team if you take this guy off? Because pitchers have their own awards, I think MVP should be awarded to batters, but most of the time I'm not impressed by the great players on an uncompetitive team; So I think Judge is more valuable, his team is a competitive team, and without him, the Yankees might be in a bad mood.

Petriro: Judge has had 14 home runs in the last 21 games, and his attack index is as high as 1.614, which is the third-highest attack index in 21 consecutive games since Barry Bonds retired. But what about the Yankees? During this period they only had 9 wins and 12 losses.

FORD: I don't think Judge is the only factor in the Yankees' excellent record this year, but if you remove him from this 9-12 lineup, maybe the Yankees will also get 4-17, so he's important, isn't it?

Petriro: I admit it's important to a lot of people, but it doesn't matter to me, if the Angels of 2015-2022 proved anything, it's a proof that baseball is a team sport, and no amount of great individuals can lead the team to win games alone.

Castrovins: While I don't like to sort the list of victory contributions and then vote on the MVP in order, I would like to point out that in the FanGraphs victory contribution list, Jaci's score is 7.3, while the total of Otani's pitching ends is 5.9, so from that point of view, the gap has been significantly widened.

Petriro: I think that's exactly the bonus that the team's record gives them, and when you try to put Otani and Gerrit Cole, Nestor Cortes and Clay Holmes on the same team, see if it's still that point?

Lance: I don't think the team has such a big bonus, but it's obviously better for Judge to discuss the win contribution value.

Castrovins: I would say that at this point Judge has a 99.99 percent chance of winning the League MVP. If I vote for the MVP today, I will no doubt support Judge when he hits the American League home run record, and he's clearly the best batsman in the league, so I don't have any problem with "snubbing" Otani.

Petriro: Actually, I might vote the same way as you do, but Judge's excellence doesn't constitute a reason ohtani is overlooked, and like I said before, either of them has a clear basis for performance to win honors.
