Mookie Betts, Christian Yelich win MVP awards

Mookie Betts Christian Yelich

And, according to the Red Sox, the only player in the National League to ever win all three awards in a championship season was Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt in 1980.

Mookie Betts had an outstanding season in 2018 for the Boston Red Sox. It's also tied with Ted Williams for being the second-highest such mark for a Red Sox player, trailing only Carl Yastrzemski's 12.5 WAR, which he recorded during his triple crown season in 1967. After four full seasons, the trophy further legitimizes Betts' already secure spot on center stage as one of the top five players in the majors and arguably the face of baseball's future.

"With J.D. and (manager Alex Cora) coming over, that kind of made things a little easier on me, kind of gave me a new perspective on the game and how to go about taking care of business", said Betts, who is just the second Red Sox to have a 30-30 season. Betts can become a free agent after the 2020 season.

We don't have too many games now. "It's about man-management which Ravi bhai has done brilliantly in the time he's been with us". And he'll tell you if there is something that doesn't need to be done, then it doesn't need to be done.

The first MVP from the Red Sox since Dustin Pedroia in 2008, Betts tore out of the gate, a big reason the Red Sox jumped out to a 17-2 start. "It's been wonderful, definitely a different part of the country so I get to see a difference in how life goes, it's definitely been a great time being in Boston". The outfielders' batting average, slugging percentage, and OPS all paced the NL as well. Cubs infielder Javier Baez placed second, with Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado finishing in bronze-medal position. Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman finished fourth with 174, and the other first-place vote went to New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom, the NL Cy Young Award victor, who finished fifth.

Milwaukee reached the playoffs for the first time in seven years, swept Colorado in the Division Series, then lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers in a seven-game League Championship Series, falling one win short of its first World Series appearance since 2002.

Yelich almost became the NL's first Triple Crown victor since Joe Medwick in 1937, finishing two homers shy of Arenado and one RBI back of Baez. Yelich is from Westlake Village, California, near the site of a recent mass shooting and the Southern California wildfires. "We were fortunate enough to make it with no damage, A lot of people, unfortunately, were not able to say the same".
