Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich came close to keeping his National League Most Valuable Player status, but he just missed too many games. Yelich sat out the last 18 after injuring his knee. That was a factor as the Baseball Writers Association of American chose Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Cody Bellinger for the honor. Yelich still won the batting title and led the N-L in on-base percentage, slugging percentage, O-P-S, runs created, win probability added and several other categories. Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell just finished second to Mike Shildt for 2019 N-L Manager of the Year earlier this week. Mike Trout of the LA Angels won the American League MVP award.
The Wisconsin Badgers are heavy favorites as they travel to Lincoln to play the Cornhuskers Saturday. Wisconsin (7-2) has beaten Nebraska six times in a row. It doesn’t have a long history, so it’s hard to say what value the teams put on the so-called Freedom Trophy, but the Badgers haven’t let the Huskers touch it. Kickoff from Memorial Stadium is at 11:00 A-M. Coming off a 250-yard game, Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor faces a defense he pounded for 221 yards and three scores last year.
