Since the start of last season (min. 450 PA), only five players in baseball have an OPS of 1.000 or better — Mike Trout, Christian Yelich, Nelson Cruz, Anthony Rendon, and Fernando Tatis Jr. himself. Last night, through the tears of his opposition, Tatis hit a grand slam to move into the number one spot in the MLB home run race. And while Trout might be the best player in baseball, I don't believe you have to be the best player to be the face of baseball. See: Griffey Jr., Ken and Jeter, Derek. And to those who say he can never be the face of baseball playing out on the west coast, please remind me what coast Griffey played on. And to those who ask how many rings Tatis has, remind me how many championships Griffey won. With guys like Javy Baez, Ronald Acuña Jr. and Juan Soto in the league, the competition for face of baseball is stacked. But the campaign is on.
