Statis-Pro MVP, Rookie of Year, Cy Young Votes

The day that Aaron Judge led the Yankees to an extra-inning playoff win over the Boston Red Sox with two home runs and a throw to the plate to nail Mookie Betts, we tallied the regular season stats and he finished third in the MVP race behind teammate Sanchez and Angels rookie sensation Ohtani. As previously announced, Cody Bellinger won the Statis-Pro NL MVP with a .311 average and seven home runs, 21 RBIs and 15 extra base hits in the Dodgers 25-game Statis Pro season.

The link to the game log of the 170 regular season games played shows the three top players in each game who divide up three "MVP Points" for that game, and the tally of those points made Sanchez the MVP with 25, Ohtani runner-up with 21, and Judge third with 20 (see game logs for the award winners at bottom of this blog).

SCORING. Below is a breakdown of every game in which an award winner received 1 to 5 points for being one of the top three players in the game. The total points awarded are always 9, but they can be broken down in any combination, so if one player is clearly the best he could receive 5 points with the other two getting 2 points a piece, or the three players could get 5-3-1. If all three players were pretty even, it could be a 3-3-3, or if closer together a 4-3-2.

"WHAT IF" ... NO INJURIES OR SUSPENSIONS. Part of the fun of the Statis-Pro game is the "what if" factor, since we keep up with the current rosters BUT, do not drop players when they are injured or suspended. The dual-threat Ohtani actually missed part of the season complete with an injury, and then returned only to hit in some games but not to pitch. However, in Statis-Pro he twice received the maximum 5 MVP votes for complete games in which he also had a hit, and in five other games, he received points for games with extra-base hits. Two other teams that benefitted in Statis-Pro from players who actually missed many games. Two players who benefitted in Statis-Pro from suspended players, as Cano led the Mariners and Welington Castillo gave the White Sox a dominant clean-up hitter that made them the surprise second wild card team while the real team finished near the bottom without him.

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR. While Ohtani was the rookie of the year, the A's Fowler was the runner up with a great glove and speed as a leadoff hitter.

CY YOUNG. Kluber was clearly the best Statis-Pro pitcher card, and his 0.75 ERA during Statis-Pro made him the clear Cy Young. However, Chris Sale of Boston was second and pitched the Red Sox through the wild card game against the White Sox, and is scheduled for Game 4 against the Yankees in the ALDS. The NL starters were able to make seven starts, and the Brewers Chase Anderson won the award with a 6-0 record and 1.89 ERA to nudge the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw (6-1, 1.87).

FIREMAN. The Red Sox Kimbrel was the top reliever but lost an epic battle in Game 2 of the playoffs when Judge took him deep in the 10th to give the Yankees a two games to none lead. Andrew Miller meanwhile backed up his runner-up Fireman status by striking out the side for the Astros in the top of the 10th inning to help the Indians take a two games to none lead in the other ALDS.
