Braves' Glaus Named NL Player of the Month for May

Major League Baseball has just announced the NL Player of the Month award for May. Braves first baseman Troy Glaus won the award thanks to his sizzling month, in which he hit .330 / .408 / .534, with 6 homers and 28 RBIs.

Congratulations to Troy on his well-deserved award. This has to feel good after so many people had counted him out this year. Let this post be a mea culpa thread for all the doubters. Simply post the words "I was wrong about Troy" in the comment thread below, and all will be forgiven.

Braves rookie sensation Jason Heyward was a runner-up for Player of the Month, and arguably had a better month overall, as he hit .337 / .453 / .628 with 4 homers and 19 RBI. He was, however, named the Rookie of the Month for May, which is a pretty good consolation prize. He won that award in April, too, and might just win it every month this year.

Tim Hudson was a runner-up for the Pitcher of the Month award (to the incomparable Ubaldo Jimenez), thanks to his stellar 4-0 record and 1.59 ERA in May.

A round of applause for all these players, please, and for the Braves team as a whole. Hopefully we will have just as many players competing for the June awards.
