To No One’s Surprise, Yelich wins Player of the Week
2018 National League MVP Christian Yelich took home the honor of National League Player of Week for 2019 to start the season. This does not shock you if you’ve been watching Brewers baseball for the last week. Yelich is on a heater that I don’t think any of us could explain right now. He is on pure fire. Yelich hit a home run in all four games at Miller Park, This is the best way to get the fans excited for the 2019 campaign. Being an absolute beast at the plate drawing in more fan interest and more excitement.
Off to 🔥 starts.
The first AL, NL Players of the Week of 2019.

Not to be cynical for a second, but I wonder if the hype will outgrow the player. Will Yelich get the point where people except him to do something every time he’s at the plate? I think he is already there somewhat and hopefully, fans will give him the benefit of the doubt when a slump does happen to him. But who knows, maybe this continues all season long, and a slump never comes around for the 2018 NL MVP.
