Diamond Hoggers 2011 BBA Award Vote

Before the season I gave you all my predictions.

Of those I am most proud of, it’s the Brewers (unfortunate) NL Central title. I also said Ryan Braun and Clayton Kershaw would win the NL’s most prestigious awards of NL MVP and NL Cy Young. And don’t forget we elected Ben Zobrist as AL Comeback Player of the Year. How are we looking now? Let’s find out how our final votes work out.

I am a member of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance, and one of the best parts of being in the BBA is that you get a vote for several different seasonal awards around Major League Baseball.

Here are the awards we’ll be voting on today:

Connie Mack Award (Manager of the Year)
Willie Mays Award (Rookie of the Year)
Goose Gossage Award (Reliever of the Year)
Walter Johnson Award (Cy Young)
Stan Musial Award (MVP)
