Re: Louisville Bats MVP: Zach Cozart
I don't follow the Bats game by game, so forgive me if I sound ignorant. But...why?
He leads the team in runs scored and total bags. But he also has at least 102 more ABs than everyone else on the team.
Does he get it because of his ability to play more games? Because he only played 6 more games than Frazier and Frazer has slightly better average, slugging and OPS.
Is it because of his premium position of SS to go along with his ability to hit home runs?
Or did we just call up every better player and they just named him MVP because he was the best that's left?
Because I think Balentein had an outstanding year, and was a much better hitter than Cozart.
I also would have picked Alonso over Cozart.
Can someone explain to me what I'm missing?
