According to Amanda Branam of Reds.com in the story Encarnacion named NL's best of week:
Reds third baseman Edwin Encarnacion was named the NL Player of the Week for Aug. 7-13 on Monday….Encarnacion led the National League last week with 24 total bases and a .960 slugging percentage, including four home runs.
Which begs the question: there's a woman named Amanda who writes for MLB.com?
And it's not ME??
What the heck is that all about? Oh, sure, you might say, “But Amanda, you didn't apply for any jobs at Reds.com,” or “But Amanda, you live over two hours from Cincinnati,” or “But Amanda, you already have a successful career as a writer, stop being greedy” or “But Amanda, if you wrote for Reds.com, they'd make you stop using the word 'crapitude' all the time to describe the bullpen's performance.”
And sure, you'd have a good point. But this is my blog, not Reds.com, so I retain the right to be in a huff. And not in the good way. Aubrey is nowhere around.
Oh yeah: congrats EdE. You deserved it.
