Ryan Braun wins NL MVP Award

Quote:
NEW YORK -- Milwaukee's Ryan Braun won the NL Most Valuable Player Award on Tuesday after helping lead the Brewers to their first division title in nearly 30 years.

The left fielder received 20 of 32 first-place votes and 388 points in voting announced by the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Los Angeles center fielder Matt Kemp, who came close to winning the Triple Crown, received 10 first-place votes and finished with 332 points. Braun's teammate Prince Fielder finished third with 229 points, and Arizona's Justin Upton finished fourth with 214 points. Fielder and Upton each received one first-place vote.

St. Louis' Albert Pujols finished fifth. It was the 11th straight year the three-time MVP was in the top 10 in balloting.

NL Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw was 12th in the voting a day after Detroit's Justin Verlander added the AL MVP to his Cy Young.

Braun led the NL with a .597 slugging percentage and had a chance to overtake Jose Reyes for the batting title on the last day of the season but finished second with a .332 average. The four-time All-Star had 33 homers, 111 RBIs, 109 runs scored and stole 33 bases as Milwaukee won a franchise-best 96 games. His 77 extra-base hits was tops in the league.

Kemp led the NL in homers with 39 and RBIs with 126 and was third in average (.324), but played for the NL West's third-place Dodgers. He also won a Gold Glove.

The 28-year-old Braun is the first Brewers player to win the MVP award in the National League and first since Robin Yount won in 1989, when Milwaukee was in the AL East. Rollie Fingers (1981) and Yount in 1982 are the other Brewers to take home MVP honors.

Re: Ryan Braun wins NL MVP Award

Well deserved... Braun is a steady (though not spectacular) defender as well. Helps you everywhere... at the plate, in the field, on the base paths.

As a White Sox fan I definitely wish we had Ryan Braun.... not a lot of right handed swings I'd prefer.

Wow at Kemp not even being close. Really have to question what the voters were thinking.

I just remember all of that Justin Upton talk in the MVP thread earlier this year.

Re: Ryan Braun wins NL MVP Award

Oh don't get me wrong, Upton had a MVP type season for Arizona. IMO, he was never a serious contender to actually win it though.
