I know Ben Zobrist is the World Series MVP.  I have a feeling that I’ll have to reinforce this throughout the article.

Let’s face facts; Ben Zobrist has had a lackluster 2017 campaign thus far.  He currently has a slash line of .224/.311/.380 in just 73 games this year.

Counting only seasons where he played over 52 games, he has career lows in batting average, on-base percentage, OBP, and many other categories.

Keep in mind, Zobrist is 36-years-old, that’s about 83 in baseball years (shout out to 83 nation).  According to his Baseball Reference page, Zobrist is just a 0.5 WAR player.  In just 63 games, Ian Happ (aka the next Zobrist) is already a 0.9 WAR player.

Zobrist still has two years left on his deal with the club, but what does the future hold for the World Series MVP?
