I think that's a different award. This one is based on fan voting, while RRM is some sort of point system.

Either way, Rivera won both and deserved both.

I've never heard of this award. Rivera deserves it anyway, though. ;-)

Are you trying to say that fans don't get things right???


MLB All-Century Team wrote:Five players bypassed by fans were added to the team by a panel of experts: shortstop Honus Wagner, outfielder Stan Musial and pitchers Lefty Grove, Christy Mathewson and Warren Spahn.


Congrats to Rivera, very good season.

Yeah RRA is based on a point system. I believe I read that the winners were Rivera and Cordero but I couldn't find confirmation on MLB.com.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I don't think you have much of a risk in making that statement, even without knowing the real winners. :-D
