Every year, SBN conducts an internal vote among our baseball bloggers to determine the results of MLB's annual awards. Our votes don't really count, but it's a neat exercise to see if we can do a better job of picking the winners than the real voters whose actual votes we deride for being shoddy and misinformed.
I was only given a vote for the National League awards, but I will include the results of both leagues here over the coming days.

The Diamondbacks and Rockies each outperformed expectations, the Diamondbacks wildly so. Arizona won eleven more games than expected based on their run differential, so some portion of luck, managing and an uneven record in blowouts likely contributed to that fact.
The Rockies actually underperformed their expected record by one win, so I guess that ridiculous winning streak just wasn't good enough now, was it?
I'd like to hear what you guys think. Who would you have voted for, and what is your take on managerial evaluation?
