Gordon, Russell named MVPs

The Midwest League revealed its post-season All Star team, as well as its MVP and Prospect of the Year awards today. Dee Gordon took both honors, sharing the MVP award with teammate Kyle Russell. Gordon, son of major league reliever Tom, leads the league with 69 stolen bases and was recently named the league's Most Exciting Player by Baseball America. Russell leads the circuit in Home Runs with 26. Injured Loons catcher Tony Delmonico also made the post-season All Star team again, after playing in the mid-summer classic before going down with injuries to his hands.
