List Rules Upvote players on American League teams in 2019 you think are most likely to win MVP

The group of candidates for who will win AL MVP in 2019 is full of the usual suspects. The best players in baseball always have a leg up here, and players like Mike Trout, now the highest paid player in baseball history, and Mookie Betts consistently prove why they are often near the top of the MVP vote.

But there are dark-horse candidates as well, with pitchers like the Boston Red Sox's Chris Sale and the Houston Astros' Justin Verlander and sluggers like the New York Yankees' Aaron Judge and Oakland A's Khris Davis in the conversation. Toronto Blue Jays prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. could also do some damage when he enters the league.

If you think of a player not listed here who you think has a chance to take home the American League's top honor, feel free to add his name, and keep checking back to see how all your favorites are doing.
