If Alex Gordon were hitting the ball, he would be the runaway MVP. His play in left field has been so good Steve Bartman probably would get out of his way if their paths crossed.

That’s not to say he’s been awful at the plate. His .262 batting average, six home runs and 23 RBI aren’t shabby, but they don’t even come close to some of his teammates. He’s third in on base percentage (.366), but that alone isn’t going to get you team MVP votes.

What is are plays like this one.

Every Royals’ fan knows how important Gordon is to this team, and maybe some would argue his defense has been enough to garner the team MVP award to this point. However, if he wants to be number one he’s going to have to produce a little more at the plate.

The good thing is based on past history, there’s a good chance he will.
