Another Graphic Look at Redefining Most Valuable

Triple-crowning-top-6_medium 

With the AL MVP being announced in mere hours, as requested by a few of our users, I've taken another look at who else could have won the MVP in their respective races. This time, using wRC+, WAR, and ISO, it shows a closer race between this years candidates (NL at least). You can see my previous graphic using wOBA, RC, and ISO here.

This year, I have Jose Bautista taking this one easily. Who do you think is going to win the AL MVP races? See more after the jump. 

 


Lets look at the two behind Joey Bats, Jacoby Ellsbury and Miguel Cabrera.

Jose Bautista (181 wRC+, 8.3 WAR, .306 ISO
Jacoby Ellsbury (150 wRC+,  9.4 WAR, .230 ISO)
Miguel Cabrera (177 wRC+ 7.3 WAR, .241 ISO)

But in the NL, the margin between Matt Kemp and Ryan Braun are slim. We'll mention Prince Fielder in there as good measure since his numbers were comparable.

Matt Kemp (171 wRC+, 8.7 WAR, .262 ISO)
Ryan Braun (179 wRC+, 7.8 WAR, .265 ISO)
Prince Fielder (162 wRC+, 5.5 WAR, .267 ISO)
