I can't really address your example as the player is rather fictitious and I have no idea what position he plays or how well he plays it or who his competition was.
At the end of the day, the player who is the "best" is also the "most valuable". There is no way around it. You can't be the best and have someone else be more valuable. If someone else is more valuable, then you aren't the best.
He's a shortstop with a +10 UZR/150. He leads the league in WAR. But he's terrible in the clutch that year, both offensively and defensively.
He has the best stats, but doesn't help his team win as many games as othe players do with worse stats.
