It's too bad that Braun had such a bad September. He could have had a real shot at MVP.

His Septmber wasn't all that bad. He hit two of the biggest bombs in Brewer history against the Pirates and the playoff clincher against the Cubs.

It's almost like Sabathia had a better chance of winning the MVP then the CY Young.

Wow! Third place in the MVP voting after less than 2 years in the league. Congrats to Ryan on a terrific season, and here's to an even better one next season.

just imagine what kind of numbers braun could have put up if he would have had guys on base ahead of him, cuz whenever i watched it seemed like he was batting with no one on and two outs an awful lot.

He actually bats worse with RISP and men on then he does with no one on. All his clutch stats are worse then his .285avg .335 obp numbers. Which are kind of pathetic for 3rd place in the MVP voting. Must have been an off year in the NL.

I don't want to make excuses, but hey played a good part of the second half with a bad back. He can be somewhat bad with guys on to a certain point, but the bombs he hit in September were nothing but clutch and made up for a lot of his troubles with guys on.

^^ Yep and he had a big part to do with why they got in the playoffs. Yes CC put the team on his back but CC didnt hit the game winning HR against the Cubs the last day of the season which clinched it and he didnt hit the GS to win the game against the Pirates

Braun is a big reason they got as far as they did
