Picking The NL Award Winners To Date
If the 2011 Major League baseball season ended today, who would your choices be for the MVP, Cy Young, Rookie of the Year, and Manager of the Year awards in the National League be?
Anthony Witrado, of the Sporting News, gives his picks.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp
It’s hard to argue with Kemp, who, as of Wednesday, was tied for the league-lead in both homers, and rbi’s, while hitting a .320, and stealing 14 bases. Kemp is finally putting all of his tools together.
Jair Jurrjens, and Kyle Lohse certainly deserved consideration for the Cy, but Halladay has eight wins, which leads the league, with a 2.56 era. He also leads the league in innings pitched. That’s good enough for me.
