Is this good? Asking for a friend.
I was dead serious in that tweet by the way. Seriously, how do I explain this injustice to my unborn child? The guy did the best hitting for two human beings, but can’t beat out everyone’s precious Mike Trout or Jose Ramirez (or honestly Mookie Betts) because he didn’t play the field.
As I hit on the podcast, defense only matters in MVP voting when it’s a close call between two prolific hitters. It should not be placed on an equal playing field.
Also, the silver slugger awards are voted on by opposing managers and players, NOT WRITERS. Very interesting…
