Cool nugget passed along by the Angels: Throughout history, only two players have finished within the top three in MVP voting seven times in their first nine seasons — Mike Trout and Albert Pujols.

Mike Trout has won his third AL MVP, this time with four more first-place votes than Alex Bregman. The 2019 season marked the 6th time in 8 years that Trout had at least a share of the major league lead in FanGraphs WAR. Only Barry Bonds has won more MVPs.

Cody Bellinger won the NL MVP, taking 19 of 30 first-place votes. Christian Yelich had a slightly better offensive season, but Bellinger was close enough and was also elite defensively. He's the first Dodgers position player to win MVP since Kirk Gibson in 1988.

Atlanta is a good landing spot for Will Smith, fantasy-wise, as a lefty who can neutralize the left-handed leanings of SunTrust Park. That contract assures he'll close, strengthening his top-five-reliever case. Ultimately, I think he'll settle at RP6 in my rankings.
