My colleague did a great job pulling for Benny Biceps. #VoteBenny if you haven’t already, but there is one more player that you need to vote for. Yesterday I talked about how badly Blake Snell got snubbed, well here is his National League counterpart Jesús Aguilar. Aguilar is hitting .305 (T-9th in NL) with a National League leading 23 homeruns, 64 RBIs (3rd in NL). He also leads the National League in slugging percentage (.639) by a whopping .054 points as well as OPS (1.007). He is the only NL hitter with an OPS that starts with one. Aguilar has done this with only 249 At-Bats, which ranks 80th in the NL. If Jesús doesn’t get in, nobody should.

Don’t take it from me, take it from the Mayor of Ding Dong City:
