Who’s the Astros World Series MVP so far? (poll included)

It’s all tied up after four. Who did the most to bring the Stros back.

MLB: World Series-Houston Astros at Washington Nationals Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros lost the first two games of the World Series at home, and were humiliated in Game 2 in a 12-3 blowout. Heading to D. C., it looked like the Astros were dead in the water.

My, how fortunes have changed. The Stros have turned the tables on the Nats, taking two games on the road to even the series 2-2. The home team has lost every game so far in this Series.

With the World Series now past the half-way point, which player is most responsible for the Astros comeback?

Michael Brantley:

Team leader in WS OPS for every game starters, .997, 3 runs, 2 RBI

Jose Atuve:

.950 OPS, 3 doubles, 4 runs

Robinson Chirinos:

1.364 OPS, 2 home runs, 2 runs, 3 RBI.

Alex Bregman:

2 home runs, 7 RBI, grand slam and 5 RBI in Game 4

Zack Greinke:

4.2 innings allowing one run in Game 3 victory

Jose Urquidy:

5 shutout innings in Game 4 victory

Will Smith:

3.1 innings in relief, no runs, 4 Ks.

Fun fact:
