We saw some amazing performances all season long. There are multiple, quality candidates for every award and strong cases can be made for each. No category is cut and dry. but for me the toughest to choose is MVP. Each league has 3 or 4 players that are well-worthy of the award. It simply depends on the way you choose to view it.
We all have our picks and it's fun to see how close we come to the "right" answer. "Right" has to be in quotations because we don't always agree with the recipient, especially when it's based upon the opinions of others. So here is your chance. I want to know who you think should be awarded each league's biggest honors for 2011.
- Rookie of the Year
- Manager of the Year
- Cy Young
I'm a gamer so here are my picks:
Rookie of the Year - Craig Kimbrel / Atlanta Braves
Manager of the Year - Kirk Gibson / Arizona Diamondbacks
Cy Young Award - Clayton Kershaw/ Los Angeles Dodgers
MVP - Ryan Braun / Milwaukee Brewers
Rookie of the Year - Eric Hosmer / Kansas City Royals
Manager of the Year - Joe Madden / Tampa Bay Rays
Cy Young Award - Justin Verlander / Detroit Tigers
MVP - Jose Bautista / Toronto Blue Jays
Now it's your turn. Your picks are....
Rookie of the Year- Craig Kimbrel/Atlanta

Rookie of the Year- Ivan Nova/ Yankees

What do you think??
Didn't catch my typos ... sorryReplyDelete
Matt Kemp was definitely one of my choices for MVP as was Miguel Cabrera. That is such a tough category this year! I also wonder if the BBWAA would give Verlander the AL MVP? I like all your choices and they're all very deserving.ReplyDelete
And never a worry about typos!
Where are the rest of you? I want some more picks!
Hmmm...I'm now questioning myself a little bit for NL Rookie of the year. Freddie Freeman had a tremendous year at first base and at the plate. I don't want to discount anything he accomplished and he was just as valuable to the Braves as Kimbrel. It's so hard to choose between the two. It's an apples and oranges thing.ReplyDelete
I just hope they don't dilute each others vote too much.ReplyDelete
I've been thinking the same thing. But let's face it, it's a nice problem for the Braves to have. I just hope that one of them ends up with the hardware.ReplyDelete
