Well that is it for the regular season. Two down to the wire races for the top pitching spots, one player came from behind to take a hitter’s position and the best player in baseball took control early and never let go.

So Who Owned Baseball in 2018?

AMERICAN LEAGUE HITTER 

MIKE TROUT finished with 10 1/2 WOB, finishing ahead of Mookie Betts with 8 and Francisco Lindor with 7.

NATIONAL LEAGUE HITTER

JAVIER BAEZ ended the year at 8 1/2, leap frogging Scooter Gennett at 7 1/2 and Bryce Harper’s 6 1/2. Christian Yelich reached 6 1/2 with his late season surge.

AMERICAN LEAGUE PITCHER

JUSTIN VERLANDER edged out Corey Kluber by a count of 10 1/2 to 10. Carlos Carasco was right behind them at 9. Chris Sale led the league for most of the season but injuries slowed him down and he finished tied for 4th with José Berríos at 8.

NATIONAL LEAGUE PITCHER

MAX SCHERZER took advantage of the full WOB and 1/2 WOB rules and edged Jacob deGrom, 12 1/2 to 12. Aaron Nola was third with 10.
