The Milwaukee Brewers are moving on to the National League Championship series! Thanks to their 6-0 victory at Coors Field yesterday, our beloved local nine was able to complete a three-game sweep of the Colorado Rockies in the National League Division Series. And now YOU get to choose who you think deserves the MVP of the NLDS! There was no shortage of unforgettable moments in the series, and therefore there are a plethora of worthy candidates for you to consider:

  • Ryan Braun: OPS .719 with solid at-bats from the three-hole all series.
  • Corbin Burnes: Two scoreless relief appearances totaling four innings, one hit, no walks allowed, and five Ks. Oh, and the series clinching winning decision.
  • Jhoulys Chacin: Starting on 3 days rest for the first time in his career, 5 shutout innings on 3 hits, 3 walks, and the win in game two.
  • Corey Knebel: Appeared in all three games, worked three scoreless, hitless innings with one walk and four strikeouts.
  • Erik Kratz: Started the last two games with 5 hits in 8 at-bats, caught two shutouts, and had the big two RBI hit to ice game two. The oldest player to make their postseason debut in over century posted an OPS of 1.375.
  • Mike Moustakas: Game-winning RBI in game one in the tenth inning; .916 OPS, and grit.
  • Christian Yelich: Because he’s the team MVP, and besides he OPS’d 1.196, had the two run bomb to open the scoring in game one, beat the Rockies decision to not give him anything to hit after that by walking SIX times, and scored four runs.

Man, what a series. When you look at the stats it looks like total domination. Why did every game feel so tense?
