The 2022 MLB MVP race will be an all-out war.

The MVP race in the MLB is currently a fierce battle in the AL and the NL leagues. For the AL MVP, we have favorite Aaron Judge and Shohei Ohtani (looking for two MVPs in a row). Also, for the running of the NL MVP, there is Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado.

The AL MVP seems to be a blowout. Judge is having the season of his life. As of Oct. 11, he has 62 home runs this season and a batting average of .311).

However, Ohtani may give Judge a run for his money. Ohtani does his work on both on the mound and at the plate, with a career ERA below 3 and is just as impressive at bat. This is very rare for a pitcher; he has 34 homers on the season so far.

Even though the Cardinals are out of the running for the World Series title, Paul Goldschmidt and Nolan Arenado are two solid predictions for the NL MVP. Both are great in the field and in the batter’s box, and both play for the St. Louis Cardinals. Paul Goldschmidt is arguably the best hitter in the NL, but choked during the Wild Card series. Arenado also came up short during the Wild Card series messing up on crucial plays that most 9-time Golden Glove winner could’ve made. On top of that, Arenado’s batting game was lacking when his slugging ability was needed most.

In conclusion, the NL and AL MVP race is stacked with amazing players ready to make their mark on MLB history. You can never be certain about the winner of the MVP, so watch out for an upset winner.
