The Internet Baseball Writers Association of America (IBWAA) Thursday named Cody Bellinger and Mike Trout the MVPs of their respective leagues.
In the National League, Bellinger outpaced last year’s winner, Christian Yelich 1422-1283. Anthony Rendon, Ketel Marte and Ronald Acuna, Jr. rounded out the top five. Pete Alonso finished seventh and Jacob deGrom ninth. My top five were Rendon, Yelich, Bellinger, Marte and Alonso.
In the AL, Trout (1629 points) easily beat out Alex Bregman, Marcus Semien, D.J. LeMahieu and Matt Chapman. My ballot was Trout, Bregman, Nelson Cruz, LeMahieu and Rafael Devers.
And thus ends the IBWAA awards season.
