As we all know, Freddie Freeman is locked in and he’s finally starting to receive some recognition from the national media. However, it was his snowday savior that came to his aid once again to pine for his boy for MVP.
Taking the WAR lead is HUGE for Freddie and provides less reason for the national guys to give the MVP to the latest hype, Fernando Tatis, Jr, or the newest NL superstar, Mookie Betts. The last 10 days will be telling, but I think Freddie takes his first MVP when MLB’s 2020 comes to an end.
Future Anthopoulos Signing?
You can’t deny that Justin Verlander, straight off of Tommy John surgery, would be the type of guy that Anthopoulos would target on a 1-year deal…in 2022. Tough news for one of the game’s best and it would be a great story if he comes back kickin’ ass in 2020 with a tomahawk across his chest.
While one can argue with Snitker on bullpen usage, its hard to argue his lineups and the open mindedness to make changes when palatable. Ozzie Albies moves up to the 6th spot and I’d be willing to bet that he’ll move further up as the season comes to a close.
