Can Jose Ramirez Achieve the Rarest “Double Double” in Baseball?

Eric Davis couldn’t do it.
Alex Rodriguez couldn’t do it.

Jose Ramirez is pulling more than our heartstrings

How Jose Ramirez isn’t a bigger story in baseball rignt now is utterly mind-blowing.

Three years, three consecutive leaps up the ladder of excellence from star to superstar and now he finds himself among the absolute elite of players. FanGraphs and Baseball Reference place him behind only Mike Trout by WAR, with Baseball Prospectus placing him third behind Mookie Betts. This year the power is through the roof too, as Ramirez has made yet another massive change to how he hits. Literally nobody in baseball is pulling the ball as much as he is.

Would he be more famous with a more unusual name?

The Indians are up 8.5 games in their division, and are being chased by teams with far inferior talent.
