A strange thing happened to the Milwaukee Brewers this winter. No, they weren't trapped in some goofy new Hollywood baseball movie. They were trapped in baseball's goofy new less-than-radical realignment plan. Yes, without even being given a chance to fasten their seat belts, they were sent hurtling (ta-daaa) from the American League to the National League. Now this would be no big deal if all it meant was playing a few new teams. But this is baseball, where these two leagues actually have different rules.

Hideo Nomo became the answer to one of the classic trivia questions in baseball history yesterday: Who's the only man ever to win a Rookie of the Year Award twice? How does a fellow do a thing like that? Easy. Nomo needed just two simple attributes: 1. A sensational right arm; and 2. a passport. He used the right arm to win his first Rookie of the Year Award in Japan in 1990. Then he headed across the Pacific, invented his own mania, and yesterday was elected rookie of the year all over again in the National League.

The Kansas City Royals will have the first option on switching to the National League under a one-team realignment plan approved yesterday by the owners of Major League Baseball. If the Royals decline to switch leagues, a move designed to create a 16-team National League and a 14-team American, Milwaukee or Minnesota would move. The Brewers already have agreed to move if Kansas City declines, sources said. All three teams are members of the American League Central, and moving one to the National League would permit Detroit to move from the American League East to the American League Central, allowing Tampa Bay, an expansion team, to enter the American League East.

With two weeks remaining in the regular season, here is a look at key National League series.   The Cardinals took three out of four from the San Diego Padres to keep their slim playoff hopes alive and get within six games of the first-place Cincinnati Reds. Given how few people typically show up for Marlins home games, the atmosphere should be especially comatose for this afternoon affair. Cardinals starter Chris Carpenter is 1-2 with a 6.27 ERA in his last three starts.

LOS ANGELES Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, who finished runner-up to Ryan Braun in voting for the 2011 National League Most Valuable Player award, thinks the suspended Milwaukee Brewers slugger should be stripped of the honor. Braun finished with 388 points and 20 first-place votes, to 332 and 10 for Kemp. Major League Baseball attempted to suspend Braun following a positive test that October for elevated testosterone, but the penalty was overturned by an arbitrator who ruled Braun's urine sample was handled improperly.

THIS WAS EXACTLY what the Phillies did not need right now. In the first game of Saturday's day-night doubleheader against the Chicago White Sox, centerfielder Ben Revere fouled a ball off of his right foot in the bottom of the 11th inning before grounding out into a game-ending doubleplay. The Phillies dropped the day game, 5-4, before defeating the White Sox, 2-1, in the 13th inning of the nightcap. "He told me that his foot was kind of sore and he thought he had a bruise, like a bone bruise or something because he fouled the ball down on it and he had twisted his foot, too, but he said it was bothering him so I said I'll give you a break and put [John]

A MAJOR LEAGUE Baseball umpire was recently dismissed for what was believed to be the first known drug ouster among umps, two people familiar with the situation have told the Associated Press . MLB announced on June 14 that Brian Runge was no longer on the staff and that a Triple A umpire had been promoted, but didn't give a reason. The two people said Runge failed at least one drug test, then reached an agreement so he could remain on the umpire roster. When he failed to comply with those terms, he was released.

Nowhere does the passion for baseball burn hotter than in Philadelphia. With 3.5 million people packing Citizens Bank Park last year - the game's biggest turnout - it seems incredible that big-league baseball once vanished from this city, and was in danger of collapsing everywhere. But, 130 years ago this season, Philadelphians helped bring the national pastime back to life with a show of affection unlike anything anyone had ever seen. Back then, Philadelphia was America's second-biggest city, a booming hub of trade and manufacturing.

Capital concerns Unburdened by expectations, the young Washington Nationals rolled to baseball's best record last season, arriving to prominence ahead of schedule. They won't get a free ride this time. A Washington newspaper ran a picture of the World Series trophy on the cover of its season preview, along with the words, "World Series or Bust. " The heat will be on phenom Bryce Harper to avoid a sophomore slump, and Stephen Strasburg's rebuilt right elbow will have to last an entire season, and maybe deep into October.

NEW YORK - Miguel Cabrera has a Most Valuable Player award to go with his Triple Crown, and Buster Posey has an MVP prize to put alongside his second World Series ring as both men won baseball's top individual honors Thursday by large margins. Cabrera, the first Triple Crown winner in 45 years, received 22 of 28 first-place votes and 362 points in AL MVP balloting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America. The Detroit third baseman easily beat Angels rookie centerfielder and Millville product Mike Trout, who had six firsts and 281 points.

The Giants sure are tough to eliminate this postseason. Barry Zito and the Giants gave themselves at least one more game in the NL Championship Series with a 5-0 victory Friday in St. Louis that forced Sunday's Game 6 back at AT&T Park. Just where the NL West winners want to be with their season on the line - in front of the raucous, orange-towel-waving sellout crowd. "It's great to be back in San Francisco. There is no tomorrow," Giants rightfielder and ex-Phillie Hunter Pence said.

He suffered the kind of freak incident that all too often turns tragic. When those two bullets ripped through Curtis Brinkley's shoulder, one lodging dangerously close to his heart, he easily could have become yet another homicide victim in 2009, one more black male whose life ended too soon. But if you know anything about Brinkley, you knew he wasn't going out like that. Hard work and sheer determination have always been big parts of Brinkley's repertoire, but his dream of playing in the NFL was never a sure thing.

NEWARK, N.J. - Despite the devastating loss of an entire season in 2004-05, when the NHL and the players association last met at the bargaining table, commissioner Gary Bettman said he does not understand the negativity surrounding the impending expiration of the current collective bargaining agreement. Bettman says the NHL is in a different place now. It's easy to feel that way after posting revenues of $3.3 billion this season, marking the seventh straight year the league has rewritten its record.
