Chris Sale weighs in on Mookie Betts-J.D. Martinez debate for AL MVP

The Boston Red Sox have two viable MVP candidates on their ballclub.

Mookie Betts led the majors with a .346 average and became just the second player in franchise history to join the 30-30 club (32 homers and 30 stolen bases).

J.D Martinez was a Triple Crown threat with a .330 batting average, 43 home runs and an MLB-best 130 RBI. 

How do you decide who wins the award?

Chris Sale, Boston's Game 1 starter in the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros, was asked at Friday's media availability who he would vote for.

"I think I'd just flip a coin or tell them rock-paper-scissors," he said."I don't know. 

"They both bring something to the game that it just separates them both from everyone else. It's hard to deny 130 RBI, .330 and 40-something. Then you throw Mookie in the mix. He's a 30-30 guy; Golden Glove defense; hit, what, close to .350. I say just flip a coin or give it to them both."
