The algorithm had this one almost exactly right.

Congrats to Aaron Judge on being named the AL MVP and in the process setting the new AL HR record. Honourable mention to Shohei Ohtani for a season that is the greatest single season ever produced by an individual player in the history of our game.

The surprise, of course, is not that Judge wins but that he wins handily.

I suspect the algorithm is right.

BP's Noah Frank has an algorithm that predicts how the voting will go for the various post-season awards.  

The beauty of the awards predictor model upon which the results below are based is that, at the end of the day, it’s just math. You can’t yell at the model for its opinions, because it has none. The outcomes are simply a projection of the expected vote for this year’s Cy Young and MVP races, based on a whole host of quantifiable factors.

The results...

Shohei Ohtani80.32

Aaron Judge hit more home runs (41) in a 86-game span this season than any other player in the American League hit all season long

Joel Sherman:

...Actually, this ALCS is going as expected based on history. The Yankees have played 10 games against the Astros this season, and the only two they won — hell, the only two in which they led after any of the 91 innings between these teams — came on Judge walk-off hits in two late-June games. Then, like now, the Yankees go as Judge goes.

Thus, the Yankees are about to go home.

Even Aaron Boone was whining after the game.

Dan Martin in the Post:

The Yankees pointed to the fact the roof was open at Minute Maid Park, something that happened just once during the regular season. 

“Who would have thought, I think the roof open kind of killed us,’’ Aaron Boone said.

Judge said he knew it wasn’t going to be a homer. 

“Not with the way the wind was playing,” Judge said. “It was blowing pretty hard out to left field. I hit it to the wrong part of the park, for sure. The wind was howling and the minute I hit it, I knew what the result would be.”

Not finalized or published yet. Working through all that, including the writing.

I've got Judge at $51 for AL-only 5x5 AVG and $59 for OBP. The thing that jumps out as much as the $50+ is the gap between him and the next AL hitter (Jose Ramirez, $37).

Trea Turner leads Freddie Freeman by decimals in the NL ($39.45 to $38.79), so Judge really kicked everyone's butts up and down the fantasy field this year.

Except Ohtani when you roll his offense and pitching into one number...
