It was a true team effort. But who did the most?

You’d think the Astros had just played a four-game series with the Rangers.

What a beatdown.

The Astros outscored the White Sox 31- 18 en route to a 3-1 ALDS victory.

It was a complete team victory, but five players stand out as most valuable. Let’s look at their stats, but keeping in mind that stats alone don’t determine value, let’s take a poll of TCBer’s and get your opinion of who was the 2021 ALDS MVP.

My candidates are:

  • Kyle Tucker
  • Jose Altuve
  • Carlos Correa
  • Alex Bregman
  • Lance McCullers Jr.

Here are the stat lines:

Kyle Tucker...............294 BA...294 OBP...706 SLG...1.000 OPS...2 HR...7 RBI...5 R...3.1% cWPA

Jose Altuve...............313 BA...476 OBP....625 SLG....1.101 OPS....1 HR...3 RBI...9 R...2.5% cWPA

Carlos Correa..........385 BA...529 OBP....538 SLG...1.068 OPS...0 HR...4 RBI...5 R...3.9% cWPA

Alex Bregman..........375 BA...444 OBP... 438 SLG...0.882 OPS..0 HR...4 RBI...4 R...4.1% cWPA

Lance McCullers Jr..10.2 IP.....0.82 ERA.....9 K.......1.125 WHIP......3.3% cWPA

*cWPA = Championship Win Probability Added
