MLB Awards Poll - AL week3

David Bloom over at Baseball Happenings is conducting a weekly poll where bloggers vote for the 2008 MVP, Cy Young and Rookie of the Year. This week we voted for the American League and the results have been posted. My choices are listed below.


  1. Manny Ramirez
  2. Carlos Guillen
  3. AJ Pierzynski
The mysterious Manny Ramirez seems quite motivated right now batting .338 with a .703 slugging average.

It's not Guillen's fault that the Tigers are off to an awful start. He is shining through the motown rubble with the second highest OBP (.471) and second highest slugging percentage (.623) in the league (as of Sunday when I voted).

Cy Young
  1. Felix Hernandez
  2. Zach Greinke
  3. Cliff Lee

Felix Hernandez seems primed for a breakout season at the age of 22. He has 24 strikeouts and a 1.47 ERA in four starts.

One of the best stories of the 2008 season so far is Zach Greinke who is living up to his potential after treatment for depression and anxiety.


  1. Nick Blackburn
  2. Daric Barton
  3. David Murphy

After a great Arizona Fall League performance, Nick Blackburn has a 2.49 ERA and has walked just three in four starts.
