3. Anthony Rizzo (Chicago Cubs)
Get ready everybody, this will be Anthony Rizzo’s first (of many) MVP campaigns. Rizzo finished 10th in MVP voting this year but never truly had a chance because the Cubs were so bad. This is no longer the case. Chicago’s prospects that we have been waiting for are seemingly ready to pop soon. Javier Baez and Jorge Soler have already arrived, so now we have to wait for Addison Russell and Kris Bryant.
Short story shorter, the Cubs are ready to be good, and will soon be great, and Anthony Rizzo could be the face of it all.
