To learn about the candidates for the 2016 American League MVP award, click here. The contenders for the National League MVP award each have different skillsets, but one brings absolutely everything to the plate. Here's the ballot for 2016 National League MVP:

5. 1B Anthony Rizzo, Chicago Cubs

Rizzo continued his stellar young career while allowing another batter to emerge as the team's top player. He made his third consecutive All-Star Game and became just the fourth player in Cubs history to hit 30 home runs and 40 doubles in the same season.

4. 3B Nolan Arenado, Colorado Rockies

It both helps and hurts Arenado that he's playing in the baseball wasteland known as Coors Field. On the one hand, the Rockies are usually out of the playoff race by September, which was the case this year, so nobody paid attention to Arenado. Conversely, he led the National League in home runs and RBIs for the second straight season, somewhat thanks to the high altitude in Colorado, and made his second straight All-Star Game.

3. SS Corey Seager, Los Angeles Dodgers

Seager is only a rookie, and is a shoo-in to take the 2016 NL Rookie of the Year award. He led the Dodgers in Wins Above Replacement and finished fourth in the National League in the same category. He also broke every rookie record imaginable for the franchise. Los Angeles has a new star on their hands.

2. 2B Daniel Murphy, Washington Nationals

There was a large amount of praise for Daniel Murphy's incredible playoff run with the New York Mets, as well as expressions of how he couldn't sustain such a performance.

While Murphy failed to homer in seven straight games in his first season in Washington, he was named to his second All-Star Game and would've had a shot at the National League batting title if he wasn't dealing with a strained buttocks at the end of the season.

1. 3B Kris Bryant, Chicago Cubs

Last year, Bryant was the NL Rookie of the Year. This year, he should be the MVP. He hit .292 with 39 home runs and 102 RBIs.

He also hit 35 doubles and led the National League in runs. Fans outside of Chicago should be very afraid, considering he's only 24-years-old.
