  1. 2017 YANKS

    On the AL MVP race, Bleacher Report ranked the candidates the following last week: Favorties: Jose Altuve, 2B, Houston Astros: 11-9 (.344/.414/.555, 24 HR, 96 RBI, 30 SB, and 8.2 WAR through 148 games) Aaron Judge, OF, New York Yankees: 3-2 (.283/.418/.620, 50 HR, 108 RBI, 8 SB, and 7.6 WAR through 150 games) Rest of the Field: Corey Kluber, SP, Cleveland Indians: 11-1 Mike Trout, OF, Los Angeles Angels: 45-1 Chris Sale, SP, Boston Red Sox: 45-1 Jose Ramirez, 2B/3B, Cleveland Indians: 60-1 Francisco Lindor, SS, Cleveland Indians: 99-1 It's an interesting debate - Altuve has been one of the BA leaders this year and has more SB of the two, but Judge is leading him in HR/RBI and WRC+ despite batting horrendously in July/August. It's fundamentally small-ball vs. eye-popping power. I think there will be some recency bias involved in that if the Yankees pull out the division somehow (3 back in the loss with 6 to play, highly unlikely but not mathematically impossible) then Judge will win the MVP, but the likelihood here is that Altuve wins MVP if/when Boston clinches and Judge takes his near-unanimous ROY award (the same BR article has Judge as 0-1 for AL ROY with no other competitors), which is still a hell of an accomplishment for your rookie year.

    In addition to hitting 50 HR, which no rookie ever has done, having people talk about him maybe winning MVP - Judge has had a better season than anyone could have dreamed of, and hopefully it continues into the postseason. Aside from Sanchez' asinine antics in Detroit, this has been a fun group of guys to root for, and I'm happy about the direction we're going. I'm hopeful the Yankees reach the ALDS and make a good fight of it vs. Cleveland or Houston. Anything more than that would be amazing.

    Sounds like an awfully uninspired first half. Especially by the offense. No rush to turn this game on.

    FWIW, the management of the Bucs expects this game to move to week 11, which is the worst case scenario. 16 straight weeks of football...

    In all seriouesness, apologies for the autopick. I hadn't seen my wife all week and I lost track of time on this. If the commish decides that Maclin is the pick then so be it. My actual pick would have been C.J. Prosise, RB, SEA

    I love seeing tight end runs in the 3rd/4th round, because it means other players will be coming back to me.

    There's a whole lot of whining going on despite me making this pick with plenty of time to spare. Understand that this year I cannot pick while working and you'll be a lot less stressed about it. RB Devonta Freeman, RB, ATL
