A former Brave has been named one of the four finalist for the ESPY award for MLB’s best player, and it’s not who you might think…

Freddie Freeman would have made a whole lot more sense, but apparently, Jorge Soler is much better than people realize. He did win the World Series MVP after all, thanks to this mammoth shot that eventually sealed the deal.

I’m not really sure how the ESPY’s decides their finalists, but ESPN has consistently made it clear they aren’t too interested in baseball. About the only post they had on social media from last year’s playoffs was when the Dodgers were eliminated. I love Soler as much as the next guy and wish he was still in Atlanta, but it’s pretty embarrassing that he’s on the list. The other three finalists are Aaron Judge, who is the frontrunner for this year’s AL MVP, Shohei Ohtani and Bryce Harper, who each took home an MVP award last season.
