Curious to see what everyone thinks about this MVP race. I can't believe MLB has already basically given Ohtani the MVP award over Vladdy, Jr. Your thoughts?

Before the all star break when he was on that incredible tear, I would have said Ohtani without a doubt. Fast forward to the present...he's clearly wearing down whether due to the strain of having to perform on both sides, or maybe also due to the fact that the Angels are just playing out the string with zero shot at the playoffs. And Vladdy is heating up and has already taken the HR lead. If things continue the way they are presently going, then I suspect Vladdy will edge him out for MVP.

Ohtani is hitting .255 and Vladdy is around .315-.320. Vladdy leads in HRs, RBIs, Hits, Slg, OPS. Toronto is in the thick of the Wild Card race while the Angels are out of contention, yet, all I hear is that Ohtani has the MVP in the bag. Vladdy is on the verge of winning the Triple Crown!!

If the Jays make the playoffs it shouldn't be any doubt to give Vladdy the MVP.

Otani also strikes out A LOT. Looks like he goes up there to hit a HR or strike out.

I am not picking one over the other yet, but the fact that Ohtani is an above average pitcher does add value in consideration.

Annndddd it's looking like he might be done for the season as a pitcher. Sore right arm. And to be brutally honest, at this point they might as well shut him down entirely. Nothing to play for, why risk even more injury?

I'm rooting for Vladdy but I think Ohtani will win.

Guerrero, but very close. Ohtani's offense has been on a serious slide over the last 4-6 weeks.

Ohtani hands down. We haven't seen anything like this since Babe Ruth. I do think going forward, the Angels will unlikely let Ohtani do this every year. It will take a toll physically. He will likely have to just bat and occasionally be a relief pitcher.
