Baseball’s Annual Awards: 2011 Edition

It's that time of year again when baseball gears up to honor its best players, pitchers, managers, and rookies. Here's how Onion Sports sees it:

  • NL MVP: Justin Upton—Leads Diamondbacks in every offensive category, which sounds unimpressive, but they are in first place in the NL West, which also sounds unimpressive
  • AL MVP: Curtis Granderson—With his impressive run production numbers, Granderson has kept a team with only a handful of All-Stars and future Hall of Famers afloat in the AL East
  • NL Cy Young: Roy Halladay—Much easier to just add a year to the plaque he received last year than go through all the trouble of preparing a new plaque for someone else
  • AL Cy Young: Adam Dunn—Dunn's historic performance this season did more for American League pitching than anyone who actually took the mound
  • NL Rookie of the Year: Vance Worley—Phillies pitcher really made name for himself this year as the guy who's pitching for some reason instead of Lee, Halladay, Hamels, or Oswalt
  • AL Rookie of the Year: Neftali Feliz—Has done a great job defending his 2010 title
  • NL Manager of the Year: Kirk Gibson—Made a young Arizona team relevant to a nation that doesn't care about youth, Arizona, or teamwork
  • AL Manager of the Year: Joe Girardi—His team has the best record, therefore he is the best manager. Why do people need to vote on this again?
