We realize we've yet to give out our Player of the Game awards for the weekend series against the Cubs, so here they are. On Friday, we're going to give it to Seth McClung for his four innings of relief work. Saturday, Prince picks up the nod in the loss. Sunday, as huge as Ryan Braun's home run was, we have to give it to CC Sabathia. With that, here are your final TBC Brewers Player of the Game Standings:
19 - Ryan Braun, Prince Fielder
12 - Mike Cameron
11 - J.J. Hardy, Ben Sheets
9 - CC Sabathia
8 - Bill Hall, Corey Hart
7 - Manny Parra, Gabe Kapler, Rickie Weeks
6 - Seth McClung
5 - Jeff Suppan, Dave Bush
4 - Jason Kendall
3 - Russell Branyan, Craig Counsell, Ray Durham
2 - Mitch Stetter, David Riske, Carlos Villanueva, Eric Gagne
1 - Tony Gwynn Jr., Yovani Gallardo, Joe Dillon, Salomon Torres, Brian Shouse, Mike Rivera
As you can see, it took a complete team effort to get here. Ryan Braun and Prince Fielder definitely had a huge impact on this season, especially in that final week. I think you have to give the actual Brewers MVP award though to CC Sabathia, who has made the most impact per games played (no stats to back that up, just trust me).
We'll keep the standings up in the sidebar, as we'll continue the award through the playoffs.
