Default MVP and Cy Young Awards

MVP:

AL- Jose Altuve
NL- Giancarlo Stanton

Cy Young:

AL- Corey Kluber
NL- Max Scherzer

Altuve won in a landslide. Stanton beat out Votto in what was the closest race since 1979, where Keith Hernandez tied with Willie Stargell. Overall I think other than maybe picking Votto over Stanton, these were the right choices.

Side note: I checked the 1979 numbers, and Dave Winfield had an incredible year and finished 3rd. Wow...

Yeah, that 1979 choice was very controversial. Hernandez had a great year and Stargell of course lead the World Series Champions but Winfield had a really outstanding season on a very bad Padres team and many thought he deserved it. Players on losing teams generally don't win though regardless of how good a season they have. Stargell wasn't even the best player on his team that year (Dave Parker) but he was definitely the team leader and had just missed out during his best years in the early 70's so I think there was a lot of sentimental voting for him at the end of his career.
