Chris Taylor, Justin Turner Named Co-MVPs Of NLCS

Published

on

For just the third time in League Championship Series history, a pair of teammates were named co-MVPs.

Shortstop Chris Taylor and third baseman Justin Turner took home that particular hardware last night for the Los Angeles Dodgers following their 4-1 NLCS win over the Chicago Cubs.

Taylor and Turner joined Rob Dibble and Randy Myers for the 1990 Cincinnati Reds, as well as Jon Lester and Javier Baez for last year’s Cubs on the very short list.

Fun fact: those two other teams went on to win the World Series.

Taylor hit .316 (6 for 19) with two homers, three RBIs, and five walks in the NLCS while Turner hit .333 (6 for 18) with two homers, seven RBIs, and also five walks.

Of course, Turner did this in Game 2 which no one will forget anytime soon:

The Los Angeles Dodgers are officially back in the Bryce Harper sweepstakes as Harper’s negotiations with the Philadelphia Phillies continue to stall.

According to MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez, the Dodgers have found their way “back in the mix” for Harper, with Dodgers manager Dave Roberts among a contingent who went to Las Vegas on Saturday to meet with Harper.

While Harper is eyeing a long-term contract, the Dodgers may be angling with a short-term deal, which makes their involvement, and Harper’s engaging with them, interesting.
