    Mvp is about value, and what's more valuable than a 22 year old superstar leading this young Jays team to a start of a large contending window. He's having a phenomenal year, his team is in the playoff race, he wins games. He's arguably a gold glove at first base defensively. He's just more valuable than ohtani. Ohtani pitches well and hits well, that's awesome and it's rare. But the reward isn't and shouldn't just be about narratives. Reward the guy who's actually doing highly valuable and meaningful stuff.

    The reason why it'd be weird for a triple crown to not receive the MVP would be because Ohtani transcended normal boundaries. You cannot quantify the impact this man has had based on old stats because he's done something no one else has. Simple

    Michael Mcphee4 ਦਿਨ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ

    It has to be Shohei. The value of a starting pitcher is so much higher than a position player in any game they play in, but they obviously don't play in many games. Ohtani is playing those games and closing in a 50 HR season, while being 9-2 on the mound. Vlad is having a rare season, but Shohei is having a never seen before one.

    @Maximo Almonte Baseball is the sport when an individual's performance affects his team's record the least. It's not like basketball where how you place in the standings means everything. Also I would argue that a pitcher almost always has more effect on whether a team wins or loses, and given that he's 9-2 in addition to being a 44hr guy, I can't not see it going to him.

    Just because you like what Ohtani is doing doesn’t mean he deserves an award for it. Being the best pitcher on a non-playoff team and hitting home runs is not better being the best batter in the entire league and leading your team to the playoffs. V is for valuable. Most Valuable to your team in relation to how your team finishes the regular season against other teams in the league. If Vlad wins the major league triple crown and his team makes the playoff, he is without a doubt the mvp. Should we give Bryan Reynolds an award for being the best Pirate? Ohtani isn’t in the top 10 overall in any pitching category. He’s number 2 in home runs. He’s 8th in steals. He doesn’t lead the league in anything. In batting Vlad leads Ohtani in Avg which is almost .60 better, Hits, HRs, RBIs, OPS, OBP, SLG, Total Bases, Walks, Struckout out 70 times less than Ohtani. The difference in average alone means Vlad will get a hit for his team that Ohtani will not once every about two games. So about half the season you are getting an extra base hit out of Vlad. Also Ohtanis team has no shot at playoffs. Vlad leads the league in runs, hits, home runs, and total bases. Vlad is also in the top 5 in league in Avg, RBIs, Walks, OPS, SLG, OBP, and WAR amongst batters. What single category is Ohtani better than anyone in the league at? That’s right, none. The only metric you can go by that says Ohtani is better than everyone is total WAR. And all total WAR really shows is that it’s not an accurate metric if every other single stat category that aren’t predicted and are actual stats says differently. Ohtani is having a great year, but Vlad is having an elite MVP year. You can get a top 20 pitcher and a Pete Alsono to replace what Ohtani did this year. The only thing that Ohtani brings value in where Vlad doesn’t is he saves you a roster spot by doing two jobs. But teams are allotted enough roster slots to not need a two-way player. So this in actuality saving a roster spot isn’t that valuable at all. You would need Miguel Cabrera from the year 2012 to replace what Vlad did. Or call up Yastrzemski from 67 or Robinson 66. If you want Ohtani it’s because of your emotions, period. If you want Vlad it’s because you understand what the MVP award actually is meant for.

  39. George Rand

    Dumb debate. It's Ohtani. It's always been Ohtani. Sports media gets bored with even the most spectacular players if they make it look easy. Most valuable player means what it says. MOST VALUABLE PLAYER. There is no one within earshot of Ohtanis value to a team right now, period. Just because his team isn't as good doesn't mean you give it to someone less deserving on a better squad.

  50. B HaveANiceDay

    B HaveANiceDay5 ਦਿਨ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ

    It’s an individual award based on the “V” in MVP - Value you bring to your team in relation to how your team finished the regular season. This award is given to an individual but is all about the team. Vlad’s value is him tearing up this year and leading batters or top 5 in almost every single meaningful batting stat and is directly putting the Jays in the playoff race which is far more important than any of his stats. Ohtani was like the 20th best pitcher and the 50th best batter, leading no stat categories, and his team not being in the playoff race at all. How anyone can make a case for Ohtani as MVP without an appeal to emotions is beyond me. This shouldn’t even be close, Vlad should win every vote.

    Tim Cowlishaw was hilarious “with all that, I’m still torn.” But Vlad is indeed an MVP caliber player, Ohtani is just doing something historically unmatched. Toss up.

    Vlad is passing him. Now he has more HRs, more RBI, better average, and is playing better down the stretch. He's closing the season like a beast Ohtani is closing it like a lamb Vlad has a good chance of getting the Triple Crown

    Okay now do Vlads pitching stats 😂 I understand and completely agree that Vlad is better offensively, but shohei is also one of the top pitchers in the league and gives you value running the bases as well even though that’s not as important it’s still an added element

    This is why it’s a terrible way to evaluate mvp. If he was a positional player outside pitcher, anywhere on the field vlad would be mvp by a long shot.

    this is so stupid. MVP is an individual award. to give significant weight to the teams record who 30+ people on the roster/staff are responsible for is ridiculous.

  143. Greg D

    Greg Dਦਿਨ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ

    Yes...the MVP IS an individual award that should be given to the player who is MOST VALUABLE to the SUCCESS of the TEAM. PERIOD. The record of the players TEAM MUST BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT. Vladdy Jr ABSOLUTELY has been more valuable to the playoff challenging Blue Jays than Ohtani has been to the terrible Angels. Guerrero has LIFTED the Jays into the playoff race while Ohtani has not done the same for the Angels. Vlad DESERVES the MVP...without question. To think different is ridiculous.

    Catching up? Otani plays a position in the field every 5 or so games. Vladdy plays in the field every game. Just because he plays a different type of game, he shouldn’t have an advantage for that

    If we are going with a "most valuable player" that would be the player who adds the most to his team's chances to win and contributes the most to the goals of baseball. Some possitions naturally have lower impact so it's harder for players in those possitions to be the MVP. This is why MVP is a bad concept but it also means that a player who can pitch very well is more likely to win it than a player who fields well
