LAD: Justin Turner (5.7 bWAR)

ARI: Jake Lamb (1.4 bWAR)

Justin Turner has a clear edge here. He will get MVP votes, and deservedly so. Turner hit .331 and led the Dodgers in WAR. His red beard is great, but he more than any other Dodger, scares me. Turner always seems to step up in big situations and is usually in the middle of the lineup. Turner did struggle in the second half.

Lamb also struggled in the second half for the second-consecutive season. In addition, his usage is one of the biggest storylines of the series. The Dodgers will start possibly three lefties. But Lamb will have to make his money against Yu Darvish and Rich Hill.

Edge: Dodgers
