As we settle in to watch the playoffs, it's also time to start thinking of the year end awards. Over the next few days I will post on this blog my ballot for each of the main awards. As part of the Baseball Blogger's Alliance, I will be voting on the following awards for the American League:
Connie Mack Award (Best Manager)
Willie Mays Award (Top Rookie)
Goose Gossage Award (Best Reliever)
Walter Johnson Award (Best Pitcher)
Stan Musial Award (Best Player)
There won't be a lot of suspense for some of these but I expect that there will be some that will generate some discussion and/or controversy. I will do my best to explain why I made the choices I did in each post.
I will be disclosing one winner each day this week. Stay tuned.
