I found it very interesting who you thought that the name of the Cy Young and Rookie of the Year awards should be changed to if baseball decided to give these awards a modern twist.
Let’s do the same thing with the MVP award. The rules are the same:
- The player has to have won this award in their career
- Awards must have been handed out during the 1980 season or after
- Pitchers and position players are eligible
There have been some incredible statistical seasons in the last 30 years. Barry Bonds, Cal Ripken, Dale Murphy… and the list goes on and on!!
I am proud to announce that I will call the MVP award the ‘Mike Schmidt Most Valuable Player Award.’ Schmidt won the award 3 times in a 7 year span and ended up with 8 Top 10 finishes. Schmidt is one of baseball’s most complete players offering the perfect mix of offense and defense.
