Ryan Braun, MLB’s ‘Jewish MVP,’ named NL most valuable player*

I’ve written a lot about Ryan Braun. The Brewers slugger—who grew up in the San Fernando Valley and whose father is Jewish—is not yet  the second coming of Hank Greenberg. Braun played on Yom Kippur during the playoffs this year; he’s just not the kind of Jew who wouldn’t. But, like Greenberg, he is a serious ball player.

In MVP talks before (and the Jewish MVP in 2010), Braun was named MVP of the National League today. And I don’t think anyone, certainly not the Dodgers’ Matt Kemp, was surprised.

Mazel tov.
