- Giant Step: San Francisco establishes a modern dynasty
- Royal Highness: Kansas City wins the AL pennant for first time in 29 years
- Doubly Dominant: Dodgers’ Kershaw wins NL Cy Young and MVP
There’s something for everyone in this memorable season. San Francisco established a modern-day dynasty by winning its third World Series in five years. With blazing speed and unequalled defense, Kansas City raced through the AL playoffs and took the Giants to a seventh game before Madison Bumgarner achieved World Series pitching legend.
A highly competitive regular season had tight division races, strong Wild Card teams, and few mismatches (no team won 100 or lost 100). It had batting and pitching starts – sluggers like Baltimore’s Nelson Cruz (40 HR) and aces like the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw, who won the NL Cy Young and MVP awards with an all-time great season: 21-3, 1.77 with 239 Ks and an 0.857 WHIP. Rookies of the year were the White Sox’ Jose Abreu (.317-36-107) and Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom (2.49 ERA, 144 Ks in 140 IP). Emerging stars included Houston’s batting champ Jose Altuve (.341) and Pittsburgh’s super utility man Josh Harrison (.315), Cleveland’s Cy Young starter Cory Kluber (18-9, 2.44 with 269 Ks) and the Yankees’ 90-inning reliever Dellin Betances (5-0, 1.44 ERA, 0.778 WHIP and 135 Ks).
