MLB Awards Voting

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. AJ Pierzinski - a catcher with 24 runs created per game.

2.Jermaine Dye - off to a great start in an attempted comback season.

3. Brian Roberts - big player in Orioles fast start.

Cy Young

1.Felix Hernandez - still a very young pitcher looking for a breakout season - 15 shutout innings over 2 starts.

2. Rich Harden - hoping to finally stay healthy this year.

3.Chien-Ming Wang - underrated pitcher (for a Yankee) continues to roll.


1. David Murphy - surprising young outfielder starts where he left off last September.

2.Nick Blakburn - solid first start

3.Clete Thomas Played well in place of Curtis Granderson/ Gary Sheffield


  1. Pierzinski isn't off to that good of a start.... I think you missed a punctuation.

    Keep up the good work; I read your posts everyday.

  2. According to ESPN.com, he actually did have 24 RC per game at one point but it was just a crazy small sample thing.
