Paul Goldschmidt is your National League MVP in 2022.
Last night on MLB Network, Goldschmidt and Aaron Judge were announced as the MVPs in the National League and American League, respectively.
Goldschmidt hit .317 with 35 home runs and 115 RBI during the regular season and helped lead the Cards to their first NL Central title since 2019.
On Twitter, the Cardinals posted a video of some of Goldschmidt’s highlights from the season.

Goldy Earns MVP
Goldschmidt certainly earned the MVP Award.
After a rough April, the 35-year-old got going again in the month of May and earned National League Player of the Month honors.
Goldschmidt also found himself in the running for the Triple Crown in late August, though he ultimately lost out to Kyle Schwarber in the home run category.
All the chants of “MVP” at Busch Stadium were simply a precursor to what took place last night.
The slugger also found himself starting at first base on the NL All-Star squad back in July after being voted in by the fans.
The Cardinals ultimately won 93 games during the regular season, thanks to the middle-of-the-order trifecta of Goldschmidt, Arenado, and Pujols.
They fell short against the eventual NL champion Philadelphia Phillies in the Wild Card round, but Goldschmidt’s season was one to remember, and Cardinals fans will cherish it forever.
