Blog Poll - NL Awards (week 6)

David Bloom has the results of his weekly blog poll up at Baseball Happenings. Each week a group of bloggers (including myself) votes on the the MVP, Cy Young and Rookie of the Year awards based on season results up through that week. This week we did the National League and the leaders are listed below. The complete results can be found at Baseball Happenings.

One thing that struck me as I filled out my ballot yesterday was how many National Leaguers and how few American Leaguers are having big offensive seasons. The top 10 OPS and 24 of the top 30 OPS in the majors belong to National Leaguers. So much for the American League being the hitter's league.
MVP

1. Lance Berkman
2. Chase Utley
3. Chipper Jones

Cy Young

1. Brandon Webb
2. Tim Lincecum
3. Edinson Volquez

Rookie of the Year

1. Geovany Soto
2. Jair Jurrjens
3. Kosuke Fukudome
