It's really time we start talking more about Vernon Wells as the AL MVP.
• Ranks 6th in AL in BA (.322)
• Ranks 5th in AL in HR (26)
• Ranks 6th in AL in RBI (78)
• Ranks 3rd in AL in SLG (.624)
• Ranks 5th in AL in OPS (1.009)
He's also likely to win his 3rd consecutive Gold Glove in Center Field. He's stolen 11 bases. The series he has against the Yanks was tremendous. The July 20 game was one for the ages. Wells had 4 hits including the game-winning HR off Mariano Rivera in the 11th inning. Yesterday he had 2 HRs and a double. Toronto won 3 of 4 from the Yanks.
The Jays are only 4.5 back in the East now. Wells deserves more props.
