Mookie Betts Wins 2018 AL MVP

I am planning a post on MVP winners sometime soon.  Mookie Betts won the award this year with an incredible season in which he won the batting title and joined the 30/30 club.  Betts narrowly missed out on the 2016 AL MVP vote to Mike Trout finishing 45 points down.  This year, the two flipped places and Betts beat out Trout.  Betts also led the league in runs (129) and slugging percentage (.640).  He hit .346/.438/.640 with 32 home runs and 80 RBIs while stealing 30 bases.  He also played exceptional defense, winning his third Gold Glove.  Betts was a deserving choice for AL MVP.
