I get the point about teams and awards. But awards in general aren’t about who the best player is. Awards are about who has had the better season. That can be 2 totally different animals. Often times is. I think too often folks just focus on who is the best player. Someone can be a worse player but have a better season. 2015 prime example pitching with Arrieta/Greinke/Kershaw NL Cy Young. Kershaw the best of those 3 by far, but Arrieta and Greinke had better seasons.
