TROUT, YELICK MVP LEADERS

Ouch And Ouch

Just a week after the Milwaukee Brewers lost reigning NL MVP Christian Yelich for the season due to a fractured knee cap, the Angels have lost reigning AL MVP Mike Trout for the season to foot surgery. Trout finishes the season with a .291/.438/.645 slash line, 110 runs scored, 104 RBI and a career-high 45 HR. In addition to winning last season’s MVP awards, Trout and Yelich are also frontrunners this year. In spite of his injury, Trout will likely still win the AL award, while Yelich’s chances could be fading.

NFL Fast Fact

A not-so-good stat, for sure: Per Axios Sports, the Arizona Cardinals became the first team since the NFL moved the goal posts in 1974 to attempt 3 FG from inside the 5-yard line while trailing. So much for that Kliff Kingsbury swagger.

Game Day

When Notre Dame faces Georgia between the hedges in Athens this Saturday the Irish will look to record its first-ever win over the Bulldogs. They are 0-2 SUATS – losing both times as a favorite. ESPN’s Game Day will be there.
