I agree with most, if not all of them (haven't really investiaged the Gold Gloves, but the rest I'm on board with, barring maybe 1):

AL Mananger should be Leyland IMO... Mark Prior award should go to Liriano.

I agree with him with the rest.

That's pretty much in line with what I would go with as well. Leyland over Gardenhire. And had the White Sox made the playoffs, Dye would be my MVP, but I can't argue with Jeter now. My favorite, however:

The Banished to the Couch Award (for spousal indiscretion): Baltimore outfielder Jay Gibbons, whose foul ball earlier this week smacked his wife in the ribcage.

Leyland should definitely be AL Manager of the Year. Hardly anybody had the Tigers being one of the best teams in the league this year.





Poor Jay Gibbons though. :-°

No Red Sox infielders winning the gold glove. Thats odd.

I'd say the same thing about Mariners... You could make a case that Ichiro, Betancourt, and Beltre all deserve one...

Well I'd say he's a little more than just "banished to the couch".

Lowell ought to be getting the 3B Gold Glove. He only has 6 E's to Crede's 10.

I think Passan puts too much emphasis on team performance when evaluating individual accomplishments, but that's just me.
