While Bryce Harper is a stone-cold lock to run away with the National League MVP honors, it’s not easy to forecast the outcomes for many of the 2015 MLB award races.

With those rules in place, let’s predict which stars will win in landslides, like Harper, and which big names will be involved in fierce races.
