Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Amazin' Avenue 2014 Mets Awards, The Piazzas, have all been handed out. The community also voted, and the results were nearly the same. Only one winner was different, in the Worst Starting Pitcher category.

Best Rookie: For both the staff and community, it was deGrom in a landslide.

Player % of Vote
Jacob deGrom 94%
Travis d'Arnaud 3%
Wilmer Flores 1%

Worst Relief Pitcher: The community was less fond of Farnsworth than the staff, but Valverde was the consensus winner for both groups.

Player % of Vote
Jose Valverde 64%
Kyle Farnsworth 21%
John Lannan 8%

Best Relief Pitcher: Familia was a deserving winner, according to both staff and community.

Player % of Vote
Jeurys Familia 71%
Jenrry Mejia 12%
Carlos Torres 11%

Worst Starting Pitcher: This is the lone category in which staff and community disagreed. Dillon Gee took the very close staff vote, while the community went with Dice-K. I, however, agree with Dan Lewis who favored Matt Harvey: "Dude couldn't record a SINGLE OUT this year."

Player % of Vote
Daisuke Matsuzaka 42%
Dillon Gee 31%
Jenrry Mejia 15%

Best Starting Pitcher: deGrom actually received a higher percentage of the vote than Matt Harvey did in 2013 (Harvey received 89%).

Jacob deGrom 93%

Worst Position Player: The staff felt strongly about Chris Young but the community spread its hate around.

Player % of Vote
Chris Young 69%
Ruben Tejada 8%
Curtis Granderson 7%

Best Position Player:: The staff and community were on the same page here.

Daniel Murphy 10%

Thank you for voting. And thank you once again to the talented Randy Medina for designing the beautiful Piazza seen below. This concludes The Piazzas. See you next year, when I hope we will be handing out a Piazza for Best Postseason Performer.
