2017 AWARDS VOTING
« on: 1 Dec 2017 11:27:46 PM »
All right gentlemen  ! So sorry for the delay ! I somehow managed to wait for my entire family to get sick... ran from room to room nursing them back to health, only to get what they had X7. I don't think I've breathed through my nose in over 3 weeks !

 Here is the placeholder for the Awards voting .  Please email your ballots to the league email address (no PMs, please!).  If you want to hype your candidates for any awards, it's perfectly allowed to post them in this thread. 

I will be posting some stats soon to make this easier for you soon, but if you want to jump on it... it would be great, remember, having one of your players win an award helps with your salary cap ! (So voting for John Mondo as GM of the year, would be greatly appreciated)

I will keep tabs of Ballots here, and I will be updating this thread in the next day or so with some pertinent information to make voting easier

Most Valuable Player

You know the drill.  Is this for the player with the most impact, the player that had the best season, or both?  Thatís up to your definition.  For both the American League and National League, please submit your ranked list of the top 10 players.  Donít forget that both pitchers and hitters qualify for this award.  A #1 vote receives 14 points, with a #2 vote receiving 9 points, #3 8 points, etc.


Hank Aaron Award

Simply put, the best hitter in each league should win this award.  You only need to submit a ranked list of the top 3 players in each league for this award.  #1 votes will receive 5 points, #2 3 points, #3 1 point.


Cy Young Award

Best pitcher in each league, regardless if you think itís a starter or a reliever.  Submit a ranked list of your top 3 choices, with #1 votes getting 5 points, #2 3 points, #3 1 point.


Rookie of the Year Award

Ranked list of your top 3 in each league, with #1 votes getting 5 points, #2 3 points, #3 1 point.  A list of the top rookies in each league and some basic stats will be included in the post (I'm working on them now).  If you donít see a rookie that you think should be included on the list as a plausible top 5 candidate, please post that information in this thread or send me a PM and gladly I'll add the rookie.


GM of the Year Award

Probably the most important award in our league.  Use whatever criteria you see fit, be it improvement over last year, trades, drafting, free agent signings, or some combination thereof.  Submit a ranked list of your top 3 GMs in each league.  #1 votes will receive 5 points, #2 3 points, #3 1 point.


PLEASE HAVE  YOUR VOTES IN BY DECEMBER 20th

Arizona Larry, please name your NLCS and WS MVPs for us.

The Royals ALCS MVP is Alex Gordon.  Gordon hit .471 in the series with 3 2B, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 3 Runs scored, and excellent defense in LF.

The Diamondbacks LCS MVP is Cole Hamels who twice out-dueled Chris Sale. In the opening game of the series he pitched a complete game five hit shutout striking out nine. With the series tied at 2 games a piece he pitched seven one hit shutout innings, striking out six.

The Diamondbacks WS MVP is Jose Altuve, who collected 12 hits in six games batting 444 with two doubles. On the dubious side he was thrown out stealing in games 3, 4, 5 and 6.

I have pulled all stats from the simulation file and will be updating tomorrow or Wednesday depending on when I have a free few moments.  After I've uploaded and sanity checked the database/GM Desk, I'll put together a list of "you should considers" and code them into the second post.  My plan is to give a list of the top performing pitchers and a list of the top performing hitters in separate code boxes.  I'll notate the rookies in each category in an easily identifiable way as well and sort the lists alphabetically (or by organization?) so that there's no sense of ordering in any preferential way.  Please let me know sometime before the end of the day Tuesday if you would prefer I NOT post that list.

Thanks!

No, THANK YOU!!  I was doing pretty good up until trying to determine rookies.  It's doable, but a time consuming and tedious task.

Lists added for your use.  They are sorted alphabetically by first name.  If you'd like to promote someone not listed, please feel free to do so.

Rookies will be denoted with an "R" next to the year 2017.  If I missed one, let me know.  Currently there are 11 NL candidates and 8 AL candidates listed.

It was his first year as an active roster player in BNSL.  That's the only stipulation that I know of.  If I've missed a rule somewhere, please direct me and I'll certainly update.

Just thinking the major leagues have a limit, that is all

If that's true, I'm unaware of that rule.  I know there are a lot of writers who refused to vote for players like Matsui and Nomo because they came from other professional leagues, but I'm unaware of a rule against it.

Looks like I might be wrong as Jose Abreu won it as a 27 year old, sorry

No age limits....and actually quite a few Japaneese and older players have won it recently.

Including when Kaz Sasaki won it when he was 32.

Then followed by Ichiro, who was also older.

In the NHL you have to be 26 or younger to win the Calder (rookie) Trophy. Knew I got that number from somewhere.

Can someone please remind me what the league email address is because I'm too lazy to make note of it somewhere and never have it on hand when I actually need it?

Thanks!
