Major League Baseball Midseason Awards: National League
It’s midseason award time
The 2017 Major League Baseball season is over halfway complete. As always, the first half has brought some stellar individual performances. The following is a breakdown of who I believe have been the best hitters/pitchers/relievers/managers for each league so far in 2017, with my second annual “midseason awards.” Let’s get into it, starting with the senior circuit.
To keep things relatively short, I have decided to break down both leagues in separate articles, starting with my favorite, the good old National League. Things have been unsurprising for the most part in the senior circuit. The Dodgers and Nationals are taking care of business in their divisions, as was expected by a lot of people. The biggest shock, however, comes in the NL Central, where the Milwaukee Brewers have a 5.5 game lead over the Chicago Cubs, the team that looked invincible just nine months ago.
A lot can change in a year. Some players who were lighting things up in 2016 are not doing the same this season and vice versa. As mentioned above, this piece will celebrate those who are killing it this summer. Let’s get into it.
