The Dickeys: Amazin' Avenue 2011 Mets Awards

Aa_award_medium

It's that time of year again. It seems like months have passed since the Mets' season ended, even though it has only been two weeks. Last year, Eric Simon wrote:

"In order to fill the great expanse between October and February a lot of blogs either go dormant altogether or rely on fluff pieces that may amuse the hoi polloi but generally don't add much in the way of intelligent discourse. Welcome to the latter category."

In the spirit of relying upon fluff pieces, welcome to The Dickeys, the Amazin' Avenue 2011 Mets Awards. The Dickey is the most prestigious fictitious baseball award on the internet, but it's virtually assured that no actual Mets will be affected by the results.

Eight of us have placed our votes, and the winners of The Dickeys will be announced as follows.

Best Rookie: Thursday, October 13
Worst Relief Pitcher: Friday, October 14

Best Relief Pitcher: Monday, October 17
Worst Starting Pitcher: Tuesday, October 18
Best Starting Pitcher: Wednesday, October 19
Worst Hitter: Thursday, October 20
Best Hitter: Friday, October 21
