On the year, Lou Groza has a ridiculous 300/382/545/928 line. If he can maintain the .300 batting average, it would be a first in his short but illustrious career. The 900+ OPS would also represent a career best. He has 31 homers on the season and has been nestled comfortably between Tejera and Bosa in the 2 hole vsRHP all season.
Groza had minimal growing pains coming into the league as a 23 year old rookie import, except defensively. It seemed he had not played enough games at 1B to field the position well in his rookie year, but he has become an annual Gold Glove candidate at the position since he rookie year. He has improved all over every single year.
How he finishes the year will ultimately decide what type of hardware he brings home. Carl Hancock is having a sick year, so he may be runner up in All-Fbsl voting. He has more at-bats and more overall production, but Hancock slash is other worldly. It's possible he could lose that and still compete for Hank Aaron or MVP though.
