    Edwin Named NL Player of the Week

    And, some good news...

    Edwin Encarnacion has been named National League player of the week for Aug. 7-13.

    Encarnacion hit .440 (11-25) with a double, four home runs and eight RBIs last week. His 24 total bases and .960 slugging percentage last week led the NL. He currently has a career-high 10-game hitting streak.

    Encarnacion is the second Reds player to take P.O.W. honors this year. Brandon Phillips did it April 17-23.

    Re: Edwin Named NL POY

    POY?

    POW?

    I think Jerry had him as a POW earlier in the season, but he's escaped the gulag since then.

    I think you need to rename the thread title. With apologies to John McCain, I think Edwin is now a P.O.W. instead of a P.O.Y.

    The Redszone power couple of EE and Reds44 must be so happy!

    All kidding asside, good for Eddie.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    What a week for EdE. Even his outs were excellent at bats.
    Not to mention 3 or 4 incredible plays on the field - balls that only a few other guys in the league get to.
    Great job Edwin.

    This is Edwin's way of daring Jerry Narron not to play him.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    My thinking exactly.

    The kid needed to "take" the job. Looks to me like he has done that. Good for Eddie. Nice honor to boot.

    I'd say he took the job when he OPS'd over 1.000 in spring training and hit .288/.387/.550 in April, and in the meantime displayed incredible range at third base.
