The big name is Yasiel Puig... 32 games in the Majors, the 22-year-old is hitting over .400 with an OPS of 1.150. "Controversy" abounds, as his brief period of eligibility seems unfair to his four competitors in the National League's "Final Vote" tally.

However, Freddie Freeman of the Braves has a PR team on the case.
