Default Eloy wins AL Player of the Week

https://twitter.com/MLB/status/1173674130337652737
Slash line of .435/.500/.870, three homers and 11 RBIs. That's a good week.

He accomplished more in a week than Palka has all season, literally.

It'll be pretty sad if the only reaction to this news on WSI is to complain about Palka. So, I wanted to chime in with a

CONGRATULATIONS, ELOY!!!


I can't wait to see what he does with a full year of production next year along side TA, Moncada, and Robert.

The HR Eloy hit last night was an absolute bomb. I want 40 HRs from him next season and I think it can certainly happen.

He is and will continue to be a hell of a lot of fun to watch.

On an Eloy-related question, does anyone know if the Sox' gift shop or Grandstand is selling Eloy t-shirt/jerseys? I think I need to buy one

Pretty impressive considering he had to beat out Abreu and Moncada

He's gonna post an OPS over .930 next year, IMO.

With his talent, personality and smile, Eloy could become the Prince of the City.

....and just think - he could have been on the verge of doing all of this on the North Side of town. Thank you, Theo.

Actually, if he was on the North Side of town, he would already be Prince of the City.

Eloy is going to be a perennial MVP candidate.
