Ryan Braun's Pujolsian rookie season is now officially historic:
Braun on Thursday was named the National League's Player of the Month and the league's Rookie of the Month for July. According to Major League Baseball, he is the first player to win both awards in the same month since the rookie honor was first awarded in 2002.
This tidbit is just ridiculous:
Overall this season, Braun is hitting .342 with 18 home runs and 50 RBIs in only 60 games. He was on pace to finish the season with 34 home runs and 95 RBIs despite spending the first seven weeks of the season at Triple-A Nashville.
