It’s hard to imagine Ohtani’s second place in MVP but will he come out as the most unfair second place in history?
As Aaron Judge (31, New York Yankees) finally reached the 60-home run mark, it is evaluated that the direction of the American League MVP has finally begun to lean to one side. This is because the symbolism of “60 home runs” cannot be ignored.
In addition, Jersey is not only good at home runs. It easily exceeds 200 in the adjusted score productivity (wRC+) compiled by various statistical sites. This is a record that no major league player can match this year, and it is a grade that is comparable to major league legends. If Judge, who has already virtually confirmed the top spot in the home run and RBI category, maintains the top spot by raising the batting average to achieve a “triple crown,” the MVP race will be virtually over.
Jersey’s personal performance as well as team performance is better than Otani Shohei (28, LA Angels). Local media say, “Judge, who belongs to the team that advances to the postseason, has one more premium than Otani, who does not.”
But Otani can be unfair, too. Ohtani, who was unanimously selected as the American League MVP last year by writing a new era of both pitching and batting, is performing better than last year. His batting performance is slightly lower than last year, but he recovered a lot in the second half of the year, and his performance on the mound is far better than last year.
“Judge’s 60 home runs can come out once in 25 years,” said a team leader who was interviewed by North American sports media The Athletic. However, Ohtani’s achievement (challenging in the regular innings and at-bats at the same time) comes out once in 100 years, he said 파워볼사이트
Ken Rosenthal, a columnist and Major League Baseball representative source, also said on the 20th (Korea Standard Time), “It’s hard to imagine Otani coming second in the vote despite his better performance than last season when he was the unanimous MVP,” adding, “My choice may be a deterrent, but I don’t have to apologize for marveling at Otani.”
If Otani fails to win this year’s MVP, he may come in second place, the most unfair in MVP history. Ohtani’s performance this year is a figure that would have won the MVP without jersey, that is, in other seasons. Jersey’s all-time season determines Otani’s all-time season
