With Los Angeles Dodgers star Mookie Betts leading his club to a World Series berth while Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout watches from home again, the MLB playoffs have reignited the debate around the best player in baseball.

Betts, who was named the 2018 American League MVP while with the Boston Red Sox, is two wins away from his second career championship. Trout, meanwhile, has played in just three playoff games despite remarkable regular-season numbers.

But a few unnamed MLB executives are still taking Trout over Betts as the game's best player, despite the glaring difference in postseason accomplishments.
