BOAB: Well's Bells June Update

Hey everyone. Yesterday while grading papers and sitting in office hours, I figured I'd compile an updated standings since it'd been about a month. So here they are, with similar format as before. I plan for another update after the All-Star Break, unless someone beats me to it.

In 25 Words Or Less: Bruce slowly getting better. Wood and Davis majorly underachieving. Can Sandoval continue the production after the DL stint?

Past Month MVP: 2B Rickie Weeks (1.8 WAR)

Past Month MVP: 1B Albert Pujols (1.6 WAR)

Past Month LVP: 2B Mike Aviles (-0.8 WAR)
