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.
- Jake Peavy
- Tim Hudson
- Brad Penny
Tim Hudson was terrific this year, but had a bit of bad luck and played for a so-so Braves team so he managed to accumulate a nothing special 16-10 record. He doesn't have incredible strikeout marks, but he doesn't walk many, he gives up very few homeruns, and he collects almost three groundballs for every ball he puts in the air.
I basically had three guys very close: Hudson, Brad Penny and Brandon Webb. If I filled out my ballot on a different day, #2 and #3 might have been different, so I can't fault anyone for putting Webb in the top three.
