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

The race for 2019 National League MVP is stacked. With Bryce Harper and J.T. Realmuto jumping ship to the Philadelphia Phillies, and Manny Machado coming over to the NL on one of the biggest contracts in baseball history from the San Diego Padres, the uniformas will look unfamiliar but the players won't.

Paul Goldschmidt, now with the St. Louis Cardinals, is a perrenial contender, the Milwaukee Brewers' Christian Yelich is the defending NL MVP, and you can't leave out some of the top pitchers in baseball, including the New York Mets' Jacob deGrom, the Los Angeles Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw, and the Washington Nationals' one-two punch of Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg.

Vote for your favorites. Vote down the players you think have no shot. And add the NL MVP candidates you don't see already listed here.
