Ryan Braun Wins NL MVP

The crime scene above that Braun’s teamates put together recreates the time he tripped and fell rounding third, but he is still a deserving winner. Braun earned 20 of 32 possible first-place votes, and is Milwaukee’s first MVP since Robin Yount in 1989. Congratulations, sir.

Fellow Brewer Prince Fielder came in third place.

New York Times Profiles Ryan Braun

This week, the Brewers will play a series against the Yankees in New York for the first time since 1997. The New York Times used the occasion to profile Ryan Braun. It’s worth a read; very rarely does a player of his caliber stay with a small-market team for an entire career. Braun signed a contract extension earlier this season to stay in Milwaukee through 2020, when he’ll turn 36. This fan wishes there were more like him.
