Braun named an NL MVP “finalist,” but win still unlikely

It looks like the BBWAA is taking a page out of the Gold Glove book, announcing “finalists” for their awards Wednesday night with a special on MLB Network. Three finalists were named in each league for Rookie of the Year (winner announced November 12), Manager… [More]

Brewers Gold Glove drought hits 30 years

BRAUN FOR MVP, AGAIN? After yet another dynamite performance at the plate last night against the Chicago Cubs, Ryan BraunĀ is now hitting .307/.385/.600 with 35 home runs and 20 stolen bases. Players from non-contending teams have serious troubles contending for year-end awards — and Braun… [More]

Thursday Round-up: Make it stop!
