1-Adrian Gonzalez

All the guy does is hit the ball hard somewhere all the time, pick it like a champ at first and play every day. Other than that, he stinks (haha). Gonzalez is once again having an excellent season, leading the Dodgers in home runs with 26 and RBI’s with 82. On a roster chock full of stars, Gonzalez somehow goes unnoticed (by most folks outside of Dodger fans) in the nation’s second-largest city. He is one of the most consisent players of this generation. Normally a Snakes’ killer, Gonzalez is hitting under .200 against them in 2015 and has slumped in September, batting only .161. I feel a big series coming this weekend from the LA first baseman.
