I think it's a selection which really does highlight how far Goldschmidt has come.Even in compiling this, it was notable how there were more possible plays from the second-half of the season, than at its beginning. It's also clear how good Paul is at all aspects of the position, including things not normally associated with first-basemen, such as range. All told, a thoroughly-deserved award, and I wouldn't be surprised if there are more on his mantelpiece by the time (hopefully, a long way down the road!) his career is over.
