This might be the most disgusting joke I’ve ever heard in my life. Do these voters know this is a family game?? I understand the ratings say the average viewer age is, like, 87, but I know for a FACT there are children who follow Major League Baseball.
See that line above? That’s the line of an MVP — IN ANY ERA.
As you can see, J.D. Martinez led the league ALL OF BASEBALL IN RBI. That’s all of MLB, not just the American League. And don’t tell me this stat means nothing. (I will dig into this stat deeper in this week’s podcast).
He also finished second in the AL in average, second in home runs and third in OPS.
“But he doesn’t play defense.”
I’ll get into this more on the podcast, but needless to say, this is a damn joke.
