Had Yelich won, we're sure Dodgers fans would be none too pleased about it.
The National League MVP results were announced on Thursday and it's safe to say the Milwaukee Brewers were not thrilled with the news. He received the other first-place vote. Players who did not accept included pitchers Gerrit Cole (Houston), Stephen Strasburg (Washington), Zack Wheeler (Mets), and Madison Bumgarner (San Francisco), along with third basemen Rendon (Washington) and Josh Donaldson (Atlanta), and outfielder Marcell Ozuna (St. Louis). Only 10 other players have won three or more MVPs, and only Stan Musial compiled three of them at a younger age. George Springer finished in seventh place, receiving 69 total points including one fourth-place vote.
This is Bregman's highest finish in the MVP voting and his second-straight season in the top five. In a amusing twist, Gerrit Cole finished higher than Verlander - the reverse was true in 2019 Cy Young Award voting. He came in 19th place in the NL voting in 2015.
Trout is the sixth three-time AL MVP in baseball history, joining Jimmie Foxx (1932-33, 1938), Joe DiMaggio (1939, 1941, 1947), Yogi Berra (1951, 1954-55), Mickey Mantle (1956-57, 1962) and Alex Rodriguez (2003, 2005, 2007).
It had never been so hard for Mike Trout to arrive at the ballpark, get his mind and body ready, and perform at the level baseball fans have come to expect. That does not mean Yelich was not deserving of the award, improving his number from his MVP season just a year ago. The fact that he didnt play the last three weeks of the season due to an injury played a factor and it also will give voters an excuse to vote for someone else.

No. 5 Georgia holds on, beats No. 13 Auburn 21-14
Auburn appeared to recover an onside kick but it was overturned upon review because of an illegal block by Anthony Schwartz. The Tigers have already lost twice this season and at 7-2 they trail both LSU and Alabama in the SEC West.
"I pretty much figured that once I got hurt, that was a wrap on that but I guess you never really know until the end".
Still, that doesn't diminish the incredible season Bregman put up.
Bellinger, a.305/.406/.629 hitter with 47 home runs and 15 stolen bases, is the first Los Angeles Dodgers player to win the MVP since Clayton Kershaw in 2014, and the first position player to do so since Kirk Gibson in 1988.
He's also still just 25 years old, so there may well be more of these Bregman-Trout races to be had in the future.
