While everyone in baseball wants to win a World Series, the best players in the league will all be competing for the 2020 MVP award. In the National League, that means young stars like Ronald Acuna Jr. and Juan Soto, as well as established veterans such as Paul Goldschmidt and Manny Machado.

Former NL MVP winners like Bryce Harper, Christian Yelich, and Kris Bryant will all be a major part of the National League 2020 MVP race, as well as newcomer to the NL Mookie Betts, who previously won an MVP award while in the American League.

So check out this list of some of the best players in the National League, and vote up the stars you think have the best odds of being named the NL's most valuable player of 2020.
