Even though he was snubbed for MVP consideration, it was nice to see Austin Riley get some recognition, as he was named to the MLB All-First Team for Third Base.

As you can see, Ozzie Albies, Freddie Freeman, and Max Fried were all named to the Second Team as well. With a World Series title, you can expect a couple of guys to get some love. I think Charlie Morton and Ian Anderson were deserving of some consideration, but Starting Pitcher is a deep position. Of course, if Ronald Acuña Jr. was healthy, he would have been a lock for the first team, and in my opinion — a lock for MVP.
Congrats to these guys, they absolutely deserve it.
