The Internet Baseball Writers Association of America (IBWAA) Thursday named Freddie Freeman and Jose Abreu the MVPs of their respective leagues.
In the National League, Freeman outpaced Mookie Betts 1,587-1,173. Fernando Tatis, Jr. was third with 947 points. My ballot was completely different — Marcel Ozuna, Juan Soto and Freeman. By the way, I gave my seventh and eighth place votes to Dominic Smith and Michael Conforto.
In the AL, Abreu (1,421) easily beat out Jose Ramirez (970) and Shane Bieber (857). I had Abreu, Luke Voit and Bieber.
