Josh Naylor is the best player that nobody talks about. He was snubbed from the All-Star Game despite ranking near the top of the Major League leaders boards in RBI and batting average.

His tear continued this week, highlighting it by hitting a historic home run in the same inning as his younger brother and earning the top spot on the high five list.
