Javy Baez Did *NOT* Win the NL Player of the Week Because of Vote Tampering Probably

Chicago Cubs News

I’m not saying it was definitely Russian hacking or illegal voters or hanging chads (remember those!?! #old), but I demand a recount nonetheless.

Even if you grant that Patrick Corbin had an incredible week (he really did have 15.0 absurdly good innings over two starts), why not share the honor with Javy Baez? Clearly, as the AL honors indicate, it can be done!

Machado, for the record, hit .500/.560/1.273 this week, with 5 HR, 2 2B, 7 R, and 8 RBI.

Baez hit .480/.480/1.040 this week, with 3 HR, 1 3B, 3 2B, 7 R, and 9 RBI in one fewer game. Those numbers are comparable, doggonit. COMPARABLE!

How are you gonna do a co-player of the week for Manny in the AL and not do the same for Javy in the NL? Rigged! RIGGED! RIGGGGGGGGGGGED!!!

I guess he’ll just have to win Player of the Month honors. And then MVP. And then the Presidency.
