As the MLB Postseason approaches, the race for the MLB MVP Awards has started to heat up. Here are the Top three candidates worthy of winning the award in each league.

Most teams have played around 81 games by now, so the baseball season is half over. It’s a good time to assess which players on your team are likely to decline—and thus give you a chance to trade them to a desperate owner that doesn’t know any better.

Simply put, Mike Trout was the best player in the game in 2012.
In 2009, Bryce Harper, at 19, hit a bomb that measured just over 500 feet, and on Wednesday West Covina’s David Denson broke that remarkable mark with a lucrative 515-foot home run at Marlins Park in Florida.
Matt Kemp scored a phantom run early, then hit a go-ahead homer in the ninth inning — right after Washington rallied with a six-run eighth — and the struggling Los Angeles Dodgers grabbed a 7-6 victory Wednesday night for a doubleheader split that prevented the Nationals from sewing up a playoff berth.
There were just 414 fans watching at Scottsdale Stadium last Oct. 27 when Bryce Harper and Mike Trout put on a show in the Arizona Fall League. On Tuesday night, all of baseball will be focusing on them.
