MLB Regular Season Awards Nominees
It is now time for the first annual Major League Baseball Awards nominations. This is when I sit down and look at stats, and try to reach back into the old noodle to decide who was baseball's best in 2005. I'd love to have some feedback so if anyone wants to comment, click the comments button at the bottom of this blog. Once you type in your comment, click on the button next to where it says other and put in your name (don't worry about putting in a website). I'll post the results pretty soon. If you don't care about baseball, go down to the next blog. Anyways, on to the nominations:
Cy Young Award (best pitcher of the year)
1. Bartolo Colon - He led the league with 21 wins, 157 K's, 3.48 ERA.
2. Johan Santana - 16-7 record, 2.87 ERA, 238 Strikeouts.
3. Mariano Rivera - 1.38 ERA, 43 for 47 in save opportunities,
1. Dontrell "D Train" Willis - 22-10 record, 2.63 ERA, 7 complete games, 5 shutouts. Only 23 years old. Can't seem to wear his hat straight.
2. Chris Carpenter - 21-5 record, 2.83 ERA, 7 complete games, 4 shutouts
When asked who his favorite pitcher was, he said "Budweiser".
3. Jake Peavy- 13-7 record, 2.88 ERA, 3 complete games, 3 shutouts. Only 24 years old. Plays for a team with little run support.
1. David "Papi" Ortiz - 47 homers, 148 RBIs, .300 Avg. Mr. Clutch.
2. Alex "I slap like a little girl" Rodriguez - 48 homers, 130 RBIs, .321 Avg. Mr. Not Clutch.
3. Manny "Being Manny" Ramirez - 45 homers, 144 RBIs, 292 Avg. Knucklehead, but a great hitter. 144 RBis even though he usually hit after a guy with 148 RBIs.
1. Andruw Jones - 51 homers, 128 RBI's, .263 Avg. Led the majors in home runs. Also an excellent defensive fielder.
2. Albert Pujols - 41 homers, 117 RBI's, .330 Avg. Best hitter in baseball today. Did you see his game 5 homer against the Astros?
3. Derek Lee - 32 homers, 115 RBI's, .335 Avg. Only good thing going for the lovable losers.
