With about 5 weeks left in the baseball regular season, I thought I'd give out my awards for each league. I reserve the right to change my mind at any time without notice. Keep in mind that this list is strictly my opinion and is not all-inclusive. Also, no offense is intended if I left off your favorite player.
Carlos Quentin - Average: .294, HRs 35, RBIs 97, Runs 92, OBP .398, SLG .585
Carlos is in the top 4 in 5 of 6 categories.
Other nominees 2. Kevin Youkilis - Boston, 3. Josh Hamilton - Texas
Cliff Lee - W/L 18-2, ERA 2.43, IP 177, SO 141, CG 3, SHO 1
Cliff is 1st in the 2 top categories. He's alos 2nd in innings pitched 2nd only to Halladay.

Manager of the Year
What can I say, Tampa Bay is in 1st place
I will do the National league later. What do you think?
