Is team performance important to the MVP? Opinion of the American media on the controversy between Shohei Otani and the judge | Full Count

Otani with 15 wins and 34 shots, or a new judge of 62 championships for the first time in 61 years?

Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani has been an MVP-level player this season with 15 wins and 34 home runs. However, Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge hit a new league-high 62 home runs, and the “MVP controversy” escalated day by day. The American media “FOX News” declared: “Aaron Judge vs. Shohei Ohtani. Why is it difficult to decide the MVP of the American League?”

“The AL MVP will either go to Aaron Judge or Shohei Ohtani. But it’s almost impossible to decide who should win.”

Judge reached 62, breaking the American League home run record for the first time in 61 years. “Barry Bonds, Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa set home run records for alleged use of banned performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs), prompting judges to claim they were the true home run leaders. Many people are arguing,” the media said. Also, although the judge missed the top hitter, he showed a batting bat that was close to winning the Triple Crown.

However, Ohtani is not defeated either. “Ohtani is, after all, a unicorn. Not only is he a ‘Japanese Babe Ruth,’ but he does things that Ruth has never done. ‘Both are elite,’ he assessed the First-ever “dual-regulated reach.” He has more OPS than Mookie Betts, Pete Alonso, and Juan Soto, and his ERA is Max Freed, Shane Beaver (2020 AL Cy Young Award), and Corbin Barnes (2021 NL Cy Young) .・Lower than Young Award).

The MVP vote is determined by which of the 30 voters thinks is the best. “There are many different definitions of the word ‘most valuable’,” he said, adding: “The best player on the best team? The player with the highest WAR? A single digit. Is he the best player? I even have the impression that it changes every year. “It’s rare for a player from a team with poor results to win an MVP title, but the value of a player does not change depending on whether the team is strong or not,” he said, explaining the difficulty of the selection.

“A player does not lose value because he was in a bad team.”
