    DOTW 7/17/13: 1st half awards

    Figured it would be a good time to do this with no games going on. If we're lucky this thread will have a lot of discussion about WAR!!

    NL MVP: Paul Goldschmidt
    AL MVP: Miggy Cabrera

    NL Cy Young: Matt Harvey
    AL Cy Young: Max Scherzer

    NL Rookie of the Year: Jose Fernandez
    AL Rookie of the Year: Leonis Martin

    NL Manager of the Year: Fredi Gonzalez (duh)
    AL Manager of the Year: Joe Maddon


    Side Question:
    With Alex Wood rumored to be stretching out his arm in the minors, and Beachy's impending return, who is the odd man(men) out in the rotation and why?
    thank you weso1!

    Can we seperate the threads? You can make your idea the DOTW and mine just a general thread... I really don't mind other people doing it. Doesn't need to be my thing. But the 2 topics just seem kind of weird being in the same thread.
    thank you weso1!

    Not really. Too many stickied threads as it is. 1st Half Awards are just personal opinion on who's going to be pick. Not much discussion per say, so the question added in will just be sort of like a bonus question. GOTTA STIMULATE YOU MINEEEE CRAAAAAIGGGGG

    I mean make mine just a regular thread, change the thread title and unpin it. And then make a DOTW thread for your idea. Like I said I really didn't intend for this to be a Weso1 only thing.
    thank you weso1!

    Beacy to the pen, at least at first. As for Wood: if he truly is headed for the rotation, I have to think Maholm is the guy who's traded or, less likely, added to the bullpen.

    I thought it was very close. I gave it to Harvey because he's not in quite as good of a pitcher's park and he has the K advantage.
    thank you weso1!
