If you loved yesterday's picks, you'll at minimum slightly tolerate today's!  Enough fluffing, let's get down and drity!

NL Most Valuable Player:
1. Albert Pujols, STL
2. Hanley Ramirez, FLA
3. Ryan Howard, PHI

Mark Reynolds gets left off the list due to his team's horrid performance, and Pujols gets to avoid yet another snub with his team destined for the playoffs.  A late surge by the Marlins could make this interesting, but Pujols takes it either way.


NL Cy Young:
1. Tim Lincecum, SF
2. Adam Wainwright, STL
3. Chris Carpenter, STL

Carpenter has the lower ERA, Wainwright has more wins, and the two STL pitchers will actually split some votes.  Cain could take a few from Timmy, but most accept Lincecum as #1 on that team, where the split views on the Cardinals two aces hurt both.
 

NL Rookie Of The Year:
1. J.A. Happ, PHI
2. Tommy Hanson, ATL
3. Andrew McCutchen, PIT

I won't lie, this is the toughest of all to decide, as Happ and Hanson are neck and neck to me, but the man with the lower ERA and more IP gets the W in my book.


NL Manager Of The Year:
1. Jim Tracy, COL
2. Bruce Bochy, SF
3. Tony La Russa, STL

I was almost going to call this a toss-up, until I realized Jim Tracy has led the Rockies to a 54-31 record (.635%) since Clint Hurdle got fired, which would project the Rockies to a 103 win season.


Well, that's all I got for now, we shall see how I did come October.
