Cash and Mattingly take home the honors.

Renteria was a no show for the TV show...can’t blame him.

Hopefully a year from now, the AL Manager if the Year will be from the White Sox, and it’s not Tony La Russa.

I have my doubts that the sportswriters actually watched WS games.

The votes were in on September 28.

Was really surprised williams won the NL roy. Just such a small sample size for a reliever only playing 60 games

He had an absolute monster season though. Over 50% k rate, 44% k-bb, 0.86 opponent average, 0.33 era, 0.86 fip.

Also his "change up" that he invented might be one of the best pitches of all time, it has insane spin and movement and players missedore than 50% of the time when they swung. All the pitch design guys like bauer will want to learn it.

Not great, Bob!

Jose Abreu will win the AL MVP going away. It won't be close.

It would be highway robbery if Jose Ramirez wins.

I'm concerned that the AL voters will give the MVP to Bieber.

Abreu, Lemahieu, and Ramirez are the three finalists.  I think this will be the order they finish.

I hope Jose Abreu wins, and is not told to "stifle yourself" and ordered to decline all interviews by Jerry Reinsdorf's PR minions, to protect Jerry's crony hire and the continued backlash.

Abreu will do interviews. He'll be on MLB Network tonight, and they'll probably start with the AL...so about 5.20-5:25.

I like the former winners announcing the awards this week, but Josh Donaldson? How many past MVPs did they ask before they settled on him?
