MLBPA Awards - LOL

Player of the Year (not MVP): Martinez (Trout wasn’t a finalist)

Rookie of the Year: Andujar

Can we quit pretending that playing the game somehow gives players wisdom that the rest of us lack? Players...are *really* bad at analysis in general. We complain about the writers, but at least the bad analysts are becoming a minority.

Neither of those are "bad" choices

I’ll grant that Andujar is probably a safe bet for #2 in AL RotY, but it isn’t particularly close. Ohtani should be an easy first pick whether it’s AL only or all of MLB. His season was historic.

As for JD? LOL. He’s at best 3rd (comfortably below Trout and Betts) if we limit it to batting. Add in everything else, and...well, let’s just say he probably shouldn’t even be top 5.

That’s not just AL, btw - the players voted him ‘player of the year’. He’s closer to outside the top 20 if we include pitchers than to #1 in that category. 

This is what happens when you think two-dimensionally about baseball. There’s more to the game than homers, and RBI’s are a lot less meaningful to player analysis than the prevailing wisdom of a few decades back once believed.

What an dumbshit and narcissistic comment!  It's not pretending....those who play the game knows more about the game than those who only watch the game.  And I dont give a shit what advance statistic you throw out.
