Christian Yelich exits with knee injury | MLB.com

All the Brewers could do was look on as reigning National League Most Valuable Player Award winner Christian Yelich sat in pain near home plate during his first at-bat of Tuesday night’s 4-3 win over Miami at Marlins Park. After the game, their worst fears were confirmed: Yelich sustained a broken right kneecap and will miss the remainder of the season, the team announced.

Well, that probably takes care of the Brewers. The game is worse off without guys like Yelich on the field, as much as I've dreaded seeing him face Cubs pitching the last two seasons.

Bizarre foul. I have never seen a player line a pitch off his knee. Just total freak chance

Best to Yelich getting healthy. Dude is incredible.

Crew has crazy soft schedule. So who knows

I suppose if the Brewers finish poorly, you can make an argument that should boost Yelich’s MVP case, but it doesn’t really work that way. A shame he won’t be able to finish a truly impressive season.

Video here.

Damn. I've seen those fouls in softball once in awhile but can't recall one in MLB.

At the risk of Too Soon, but:

What does this mean for the NL MVP race?

Not exactly the same thing--he fouled it straight down onto his knee instead of the ball bouncing astray off of it--but there was Jermaine Dye in the 2001 ALDS.

Well, ####.

Yelich walked off the field with the trainer, so it seems better than I had pictured it when I read the news. I've always liked Yelich, even when I got ribbed for that here way back when he was with the Marlins; so glad he escaped that Purgatory.

Yelich had missed some time earlier in the season thanks to various injuries, and goes into the books having played 130 games this season. Bellinger has played 141 games with 16 to go, so he'll have a sizable advantage there. Yelich's rate stats were a bit ahead of Bellinger's, but given the extra playing time and what bb-ref thinks is a sizable defensive edge, I'd think the MVP is Bellinger's to win, unless he totally goes in the tank over the next couple of weeks.

This could open the door to Rendon winning the MVP

We all lose.

My first thought when hearing of this, was watching that on TV when it happened (in 2001), and it looked bad.

My favorite ALDS moment involving Jermaine Dye is this.

Really sorry to see that... Yelich has been a Cub killer and the Cubs do suddenly find themselves trying to fend off another September surge from Milwaukee just to straggle into the second WC, but I'd rather not see a marquee player lose time to injury, whatever impact it has on the standings fortunes.

If the Cubs and Brewers end up tied, maybe Yelich and Baez can play a cards to determine the tiebreaker rather than a tiebreaker game.

*first Wild Card.

The Nationals are in the midst of a most mellifluous swan dive.
