New, 43 comments

Amazin' Avenue writers weigh in with their picks for MVP, Cy Young Award, and Rookie of the Year in both the American League and National League.

Mike Stobe

The 2012 MLB Awards will be announced this week. Here is the schedule:

Monday, November 12th: Rookie of the Year
Wednesday, November 14th: Cy Young Award
Thursday, November 15th: MVP

The Amazin' Avenue staff has weighed in with their picks for these awards, most of which are slam dunks. We only voted on winners; a full ballot was not submitted for each award. The sabermetric groupthink isn't full-blown, as just two of the races are unanimous. See below for the picks, with number of votes in parentheses:

AL MVP: Mike Trout (12)

NL MVP: Buster Posey (9), Ryan Braun (2), R.A. Dickey (1)

AL Cy Young: Justin Verlander (11), David Price (1)

NL Cy Young: R.A. Dickey (11), Clayton Kershaw (1)

AL Rookie of the Year: Mike Trout (12)

NL Rookie of the Year: Bryce Harper (11), Wade Miley (1)

Here are the picks by voter:
