MOST VALUABLE PLAYER
American League - Albert Cruz, Pawtucket - .322 AVG 51 HR 139 RBI
Cruz won the AL MVP in a blowout, with a tremendous season that saw him league the lead in Slugging and OPS, while finishing top 3 in the triple crown categories. This is his 2nd consecutive MVP award, a very impressive feat for the 23 year old. No player in Cobbfather history has won 3 MVP awards, much less three in a row, so it looks like Cruz could be the first on both counts.
National League - Willie Cerda, Little Rock - .323 AVG 61 HR 138 RBI
Cerda won his first MVP with a dominant season where he led the NL in Home Runs, Runs, Slugging and OPS. Cerda keeps the streak alive, becoming the 17th different NL MVP in the past 17 seasons. Given what an incredible bat Cerda has, and the fact that he is only 25 years old, that streak could be ending very soon.
CY YOUNG AWARD
American League - Ron Gross, Pawtucket - 18-3 2.68 ERA 171 K
Gross took the Cy Young award in a year there wasn't a dominant AL pitcher, but several very good ones, making Pawtucket the home of both the MVP and Cy Young winner. Gross's 18-3 record and very good ERA is what likely stood out to voters. This was his first Cy Young win.
National League - Don Monahan, Dover - 20-2 2.07 ERA 241 K
Unlike the AL, the NL did have a dominant pitcher, making the Cy Young voting a no-brainer. On top of winning the pitching triple crown, Monahan also led the league in Innings Pitched and Quality Starts. Monahan has compiled a ridiculous 93-13 record in 4 and a half seasons with Dover. This is his 2nd Cy Young win, also taking the award in Season 20.
ROOKIE OF THE YEAR
American League - Gregory Evans, Trenton - 13-9 2.50 ERA 134 K
Evans impressed with a stellar rookie campaign for Trenton to take home the AL Rookie of the Year award. Evans looks legit, and should be a future contender for the Cy Young award. He won't strike out a ton of guys, but has a very crafty arsenal that should make him elite for seasons to come.
National League - Lefty Leverton, Buffalo - 17-7 3.02 ERA 171 K
Leverton was a workhorse for Buffalo, posting great stats in route to capturing the NL Rookie of the Year title. Leverton should be able to throw a ton of quality innings for many seasons to come. He might not quite be elite, but he will be a solid workhorse and a valuable asset to any rotation.
FIREMAN OF THE YEAR
American League - Gus Masaoka, Atlanta - 3.20 ERA 48 SV, 1st win
National League - Will Ogden, Dover - 3.10 ERA 45 SV, 1st win
