MLB Awards Prediction

NL MVP: Bryce Harper
Hands down the best position player in the National League. Harper has a chance to get a batting title and Home Run crown this year. Even though at this point the Nationals will not make the postseason Harper is a lock for getting the NL MVP.

AL MVP: Josh Donaldson
I think Donaldson has been amazing all year on offense and defense. Toronto's success does evaluate the Donaldson in the MVP race and may even give him the edge. There is a few players in the American League that could get the MVP this year, but Donaldson to me is most deserving. 

NL CY YOUNG: Jake Arrieta
This was one of the toughest for me to decide. I think Greinke, Bumgarner, and even Gerrit Cole could win the NL Cy Young, but I went with Jake Arrieta from the Chicago Cubs. The lone Bright spot for the Cub's rotation has given his team a chance to win in just about every game he starts. Jake Arrieta is my pick for NL CY YOUNG 

AL CY YOUNG: Dallas Keuchel
Dallas Keuchel has been electric this season. David Price makes the AL Cy Young race interesting to say the least. 

NL Rookie of the year:  Kris Bryant
This kid looked really good all year start to finish. He is a big part of a team that is looking forward to October baseball. I felt the national League had a few good rookie position players this year, but Kris Bryant was the best this season.

AL Rookie of the year: Billy Burns
I like this kid for the Oakland Athletics. He is one of those players that will hit in the 1 or 2 spot in any lineup and be a run producer. I like billy over Houston Astros Carlos Correa who ironically also wears the jersey number 1.

NL Manager of the year: Mike Matheny
The Cardinals have arguably been the best team in baseball since opening day. They have a solid pitching staff, but no real star on offense. What Matheny has gotten out of this team is amazing deserves NL Manager of the year.

AL Manager of the year: John Gibbons
People Might not give him too much credit since they made the trades they made after the all star break. I think John Gibbons has done a great with this team. They needed David Price for quality starting pitching, but the offense was already at the top of the league before all star break. 

Agree or Disagree?
Let me know what you think?
