Why he’s here: This was basically a coin flip between Sale and Max Scherzer, two of the best pitchers in baseball having Cy Young-worthy seasons. Sale has double-digit strikeouts in 10 of his 16 starts this season (and nine in three others), and think about this: The lefty has 155 strikeouts this season, while only allowing 21 walks and 82 hits. That’s just stupid good.
Why he’s here: This was the hardest position to choose, and I won’t fault NFL Jerseys Cheap you for arguing the choice of Ramirez. How closely packed are the guys at the top of this position? Ramirez is second in FanGraphs WAR (3.0) but fifth in Baseball-Reference WAR (2.6). Justin Turner’s hitting .381, but in only 237 PAs because of time spent on the DL. Anthony Rendon got off to a slow start, but starting with his 6-for-6, three-homer, 10-RBI game on April 30, he’s batting .333 with a 1.148 OPS. Nolan Arenado has been his typical spectacular self. Kris Bryant, Jake Lamb, Miguel Sano, Travis Shaw and Jedd Gyorko have been really good. Mike Moustakas has 20 homers. You get the point.
