DATA DEPENDENT: Visualizing MLB Most Valuable Player candidates’ seasons for easy comparison.

Nothing fancy here. Just some graphs to contextualize the seasons MVP candidates are having compared with their previous seasons and each other. In addition to batting average, we’re using weighted On Base Average (wOBA) and Wins Above Replacement (WAR) because they represent better ways of capturing the quality of their output. They’re also more accurate ways of comparing players who play different positions, have different styles of hitting, and play in different ball parks.
