The Dodgers and the rest of the league (except the A’s and Mariners) will begin their 2019 seasons tomorrow.  Here are our staff predictions for awards and the World Series winner.

With opening day tomorrow, we wanted to continue our Dodgers Way tradition of predicting the award winners and the World Series winner.  Here are the picks for NL and AL Most Valuable Player:

NL MVP

Michael Wittman – Nolan Arenado

Jack Trent Dorfman – Manny Machado

Hector Ponce – Corey Seager

Jason McClure – Nolan Arenado

Michael Sloniker – Paul Goldschmidt

Mary Jo Maldonado – Nolan Arenado

Jacob Rudner – Nolan Arenado

Nolan Arenado was the favorite to win the National League MVP award according to our team and Hector picked Corey Seager to bounce back in a big way and take home his first MVP award in 2019.  Jack picked the man who replaced Seager last season to make a big impact in San Diego and win the NL MVP award while Michael Sloniker thinks a formal nemesis takes home the NL award in Paul Goldschmidt.

AL MVP

Michael Wittman – Mookie Betts

Jack Trent Dorfman – Jose Ramirez

Hector Ponce – Mike Trout

Jason McClure – Mike Trout

Michael Sloniker – Mike Trout

Mary Jo Maldonado – Mike Trout

Jacob Rudner – Mookie Betts

The heavy favorite to win the American League MVP award by our staff is Mike Trout.  Now that he is settled in with a hefty contract extension, most of us think that he will reward the Angels with another MVP caliber season.  Last year’s AL MVP award winner Mookie Betts received two picks in our predictions while Jose Ramirez also was picked once.
