4-Paul Goldschmidt

Realistically, we could put Goldy on this list every single week. That’s because he is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best players in the game. But we already knew that even if the media doesn’t think we do. Goldschmidt is now three behind Nolan Arenado for the Major League lead in RBI’s. However, the All-Star remains in first place in the batting race with an average .342, a healthy ten points better than Bryce Harper. The D’backs first baseman also leads the Majors (with Harper) in on-base percentage at .458 and leads the NL in hits with 126.
