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.
