Well, the season is starting to wrap up. There is just a hair over or a hair under 40 games left (depending on the team) to go. I thought this would be a good time to give my predictions for the award recipiants of the 2010 season.
CY YOUNG: Adam Wainwright- No pitcher has been as consistent as wainwright this season. He currently leads the league in ERA and Wins and is only .02 behind in WHIP and a handful of strikeouts being Halladay. The only real blemish is that he hasn’t thrown a perfect Game. Kidding. The real blemish is that his team isn’t in first place right now because that usually brings bonus points in the eyes of the voters.
MVP: UGHH Joey Votto- Yes, you read it right. A Cardinals fan says Joey Votto is the NL MVP over Albert Pujols. He is leading the league in batting average and is 2nd in HR’s, RBI’s, and Slugging. Of Course, Pujols is first in those stats. Honestly, it could be a coin fip at this point. Again, Votto gets bonus points because his team is in first place.
ROY: Jaime Garcia. I really couldn’t decide on whether to give this one to Buster Posey or Garcia. I ended up deciding that since Garcia has been doing his thing the WHOLE season, so I gave him the slight edge.
He leads rookies in essentially every pitching category there is except strikeouts. He has been the second most consistent pitcher on the Cardinals rotation this year, more consistent than Chris Carpenter. Heck, he even has a better ERA than him.
American league soon to come. Stay tuned!
