On May 26, a week ended. And it was Domonic Brown’s week.
Dom was rewarded with his first ever NL Player of the Week award today, finally compensated after years of injuries, lack of development, and mishandling by the front office. For his efforts, Dom will receive a free watch from Game Time, a company that makes watches for people who play sports and definitely did not come up with their company’s purpose after coming up with the name.
Dom was a .348 hitter from May 21-26, with seven RBI, a triple, and a home run. His number that week, when the Phillies went on a hot hot hot streak of four wins in seven games. Yeeeeaaaaaahhhhh.
So, Dom’s fixed. Let’s move onto something that matters, like Cole Hamels’ feelings or what in the hell Michael Martinez is doing here. Oh no, right, we solved that, he’s here to be Delmon Young’s legs. But what the hell is Delmon Young doing here…
No matter. Let’s celebrate Dom’s victory here since actual, game victories are too hard to come by.
Charlie Manuel says this honor is good enough for him to take Dom seriously as a hitter. Almost.
