Predicting MLB's awards for 2013
This week marks the announcement of the MVP, Cy Young and other major awards. What can we expect?
The Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) is set to reveal the winners of the traditional Major League Baseball awards this coming week.
Each of the awards will have an hour-long show on MLB Network live, beginning at 6 p.m. ET.
Here's the daily schedule:
Monday: AL/NL Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year award
Tuesday: AL/NL Manager of the Year award
Wednesday: AL/NL Cy Young award
Thursday: AL/NL Most Valuable Player award
Having three finalists for each award, your Eye on Baseball writers have decided to predict the order of finish for the top three in each individual award.
To reiterate: These aren't how we would necessarily vote. We're trying to predict how the final BBWAA collective voting body came down, based upon historical voting precedents, arguments written during the regular season from the voting body and general knowledge of how the voting body thinks.
