AL MVP: Derek Jeter
AL Cy Young: Johan Santana
AL ROY: Justin Verlander
AL Comeback: Frank Thomas

NL MVP: Albert Pujols, unless they don't make it. In that case I'd go with Berkman
NL Cy Young: Brandon Webb
NL ROY: Dan Uggla
NL Comeback: Carlos Beltran

AL MVP: Travis Hafner
AL Cy: Johan Santana
AL Roy: Justin Verlander
AL Comeback: Jim Thome

NL MVP: Albert Pujols
NL Cy: Brandon Webb
NL Roy: Dan Uggla
NL Comeback: Carlos Beltran


These are who I think the actual awards should go to. If you want to play the 'MVP needs to come from a winning team' game, then Jeter gets the AL MVP. Berkman would be right behind Pujols in the NL.

the big hurt's numbers don't compare to the other sluggers in the al. david ortiz and travis hafner's numbers are better than his across the board.

AL MVP: Derek Jeter
AL Cy Young: Johan Santana
AL ROY: Francisco Liriano
AL Comeback Player: Mike Lowell

NL MVP: Complicated (see note below)
NL CY Young: Brandon Webb
NL ROY: Josh Johnson
NL Comeback Player: Nomar Garciaparra





OK, it's time to explain the NL MVP. I do believe that the result will have everything to do with who makes the playoffs.

If St. Louis takes the division, Pujols gets it.
If Houston takes the division, it will be Berkman (with a few votes for Oswalt).
However, I think that either of these will be overridden by Ryan Howard if the Phillies capture the Wild card.

Jeter does not deserve the MVP award. Dear sweat lord, if there is no better reason to hate the Yankees, how about hating them for being one of the reasons people who have no business in an MVP discussion occasionally end up with the awards.

He's having a very nice season, but COMMON!!! The guy's OPS isn't even .900! He hits in the BEST LINEUP IN THE LEAGUE. If you take Jeter out of that lineup, sure, it hurts a little.... But it means you only have 8 scary batters to face instead of 9. And no, he's not hitting in front of Manny; he's hitting after Damon and before Jason Giambi and Alex Rodriguez (both of whom I'd vote for for MVP ahead of Jeter, incidently. Okay, maybe not ARod; that's about a push).

Seriously, it's Johan. Without him, the Twinkies are nowhere near contention.

As for the rest...
AL Cy: Johan Santana
AL Roy: Paps
AL Comeback: Frank Thomas

NL MVP: Albert Pujols
NL Cy: Brandon Webb
NL Roy: Saito
NL Comeback: Nomar Garciaparra

Yup except Carpenter wins over Webb imo.

AL MVP will be close, but Jeter will edge out Dye imo. Ortiz will lose out because his team fell out so early. Dye will lose out because the WSox disappointed and fell off badly towards the end. Morneau will get some votes too but does not have the media exposure to carry the vote total imo.
The other AL awards are pretty much a lock imo.

NL MVP will go to Howard in a close vote over Pujols.
NL CY Young goes to Carpenter over Webb in a close vote.
The other two awards are a lock imo though there will be some votes for Saito and Josh Johnson. for ROY.

AL MVP: Should be Ortiz/Santana/Thomas
will be Jeter :-t
AL CY: Johan
AL ROY: Verl
AL CPOY: Thomas will win, but how about Copat ;-D

NL MVP: Howard if the Phils make it, Pujols if not (Pujols gets my vote every year until he turns 40, or in five years, whatever comes first)
NL CY: Carpenter if the Cards hold off the 'Stros, Webb if they don't
NL ROY: Zimmerman
NL CPOY: Nomar will win, but Rent deserves some consideration.
