Ely Sussman outlines the case for the Marlins ace to be in the running for an award that’s usually reserved for position players.

Ely discusses the Friday, Saturday and Sunday games between the Marlins and Mets (3:15), then breaks down why Alcantara is among the NL’s most valuable individuals regardless of position (14:15).
