Preparing for the Baseball Awards Season
As Major League Baseball prepares to hand outs its season-ending awards, I thought it time to recap my own picks. Links are to my earlier posts explaining my rationale.
American League Cy Young Award – November 17
Managers of the Year – November 18
Jim Tracy and Ron Gardenhire (No post on these picks.)
National League Cy Young Award – November 19
Tim Lincecum (This is the vote I would be most likely to reconsider. Lincecum ended poorly, minimizing his statistical advantages, while Wainwright had similar run support problems and worse bullpen issues depressing his numbers unfairly.)
American League Most Valuable Player – November 23
National League Most Valuable Player – November 24
I suspect my picks will win the AL Cy Young, both MVPs, and the NL MOY. If I had to guess, Rick Porcello will pick up the AL ROY, Mike Scioscia the AL MOY, and Adam Wainwright the NL Cy Young. We will see.
Who do you think will win? Who do you think should?
