2011 MLB Awards

The 2011 MLB Regular Season has come to an end and what an exciting final day of game 162’s. All division’s had been won and both Wild Card races were tied for 1st place. In the AL, the Boston Redsox and Tampa Bay Rays were tied for the Wild Card lead. In The NL, the Atlanta Braves and St.Louis Cardinals were tied for the Wild Card lead. On September 1st, Atlanta had a 8.5 game lead on St.Louis and Boston had a 9 game lead on Tampa Bay, they both blew it on the final day of the season. Atlanta and Boston lost, and St.Louis and Tampa Bay won. These finishes may have impacted some of the awards races in the MLB, and i think some did. Here is where I will display my winners of the major MLB Awards for 2011. If you disagree, share your views in the comments section.
