Predictions for each award.
AL MVP: Very close between Cano and Josh Hamilton, but I give the slight edge to Hamilton due to better numbers. I would not be surprised if Cano won it due to the fact that he played the whole year and he provided GG-caliber defense at second base. I might hate the Yankees, but not to the point where I'm blinded of Cano's greatness. Either one of those two would be deserving.
AL Cy Young: Felix Hernandez. If he doesn't win it, something's wrong. David Price, Trevor Cahill, and CC Sabathia would be the next three deserving candidates. Had Cahill not been injured for the entire month of April, he probably would have won the AL Cy Young.
AL ROTY: Feliz. Owning the rookie save record is good enough to earn my vote. Austin Jackson, Brian Matusz, and Wade Davis would be the next three deserving candidates (in that order). With that said, Jackson is the most likely of that bunch to be a fluke. Jackson needs to grasp this crazy idea of "taking pitches". Reminds me of a young Jeffrey Hammonds.
AL Manager Of The Year: Ron Gardenhire. Think of everything the Twins have had to overcome this year: No Joe Nathan (the best closer in the game not named Rivera), down year by Mauer, and no Morneau for a significant portion of the year. No problem for a team managed by Ron Gardenhire. Ron Washington would be deserving as well, as would Joe Maddon. Buck gets 2011 AL MOTY though!
AL CPOTY: Some good contenders this year. There's Shawn Marcum, Vladimir Guerrero, Jim Thome, and Carl Pavano. I'll go with Thome because he's a sentimental favorite to me. If people are dumb enough to vote for Bautista despite the fact he hasn't really come back from anything, he'll probably get it.
NL MVP: JOEY. VOTTO. Pujols finishes second.
NL Cy Young: Roy Halladay. Holy cow am I glad he's out of the AL East. Adam Wainwright deserves mentioning too.
NL ROTY: Buster Posey, although the media is in love with Jason Heyward so I could see Heyward getting it. Garcia of the Cardinals would get it any other year.
NL Manager of the Year: Bud Black (Padres). Black took a team that was supposed to flirt with 100 loses and took them to within one game of the post season. One of the best manager jobs I've ever seen. I can't think of anyone else who could have pulled it off.
NL CPOTY: Tim Hudson, Aubrey Huff, and Scott Rolen are all deserving in my mind. I'd give my vote to another sentimental favorite, Scott Rolen. I've been a huge fan of his for his entire career, and I'm extremely happy to see his career revived, even if it's just for one year.
