Rookie of the Month

News from the world of Major League Baseball: Jair Jurrjens, the rookie starting pitcher for the embattled Atlanta Braves has won National League honors as June's Rookie of the Month. With a 3-0 record and a 1.63 ERA for the month of June, Jurrjens is certainly deserving. The bonus? The twenty-two year old is simply fun to watch! And it certainly doesn't hurt to see some power in Atlanta's rotation right about now... In a week heavy on big pitching trade news, think C.C. Sabathia and Rich Harden, it's nice to see the underdog getting some recognition. Way to go, Jair!
