I love Aaron Judge


double_dose_larry

That was crushed!


cooljammer00

Just call him 2017 AL MVP


MattO2000

My previous post was deleted for the inflammatory title, hope this is alright


Sp_Gamer_Live

i mean it got removed for being wrong, He’s not an MVP finalist


MattO2000

>potential


Sp_Gamer_Live

He’s potentially scrapping it out for 4th with Devers behind Ohtani/Vlad/Semien, that ain’t finalist. By that metric we will be a “finalist” for the AL Central as we will be Top 5 in that


MattO2000

If Blue Jays miss the playoffs, two guys from that team aren’t finishing in the top 3 Especially when Judge’s offensive rate stats are across the board better than Semien’s


Sp_Gamer_Live

Bruh we both know MVP doesn’t work like that, Both MVPs this year are going to be from teams that miss the playoffs


DaTigerMan

HEY! we’ll *probably* miss the playoffs, thank you very much.


Sp_Gamer_Live

Hey bud…you may wanna sit down for this


MattO2000

It definitely plays a role, whether you think it should or not, especially for down-ballot votes where it’s not as important. The last time 2 players from the same team finished in the top 3 was the 2011 Brewers who won their division by 6 games


Sp_Gamer_Live

except it isn’t


MattO2000

…What isn’t?


Sp_Gamer_Live

Making the playoffs isnt a factor in MVP this year at all


or_maybe_this

You make so many good points, pal. Down ballots are pretty interesting in this situation, and I pride myself and think of myself as a man of faith, as there's a drive into deep left field by Castellanos and that'll be a home run. And so that'll make it a 4-0 ballgame. I don't know if I'm going to be putting on this headset again.

He's not a potential MVP finalist either. There's two weeks left in the year... is he going to hit 15 HRs in that time in your mind?


MattO2000

Finalist doesn’t mean he’s going to win… 3rd place will be a big gap from the top 2


getmoney7356

Finalist implies he has a chance to win.


MattO2000

[No it doesnt](https://www.mlb.com/amp/news/freddie-freeman-2020-nl-mvp-finalist.html)

When MLB announces the finalists, it’s the top 3 for each award.
