It's MLB awards time.

Alright folks, I'm going to make this one concise. The funny will come back when I get the recording technology working.

Warning, Mama Jade, this isn't going to be the Yanks year...

MLB awards by League.

National League-

Hank Aaron Award Winner, Silver Slugger Award Winner and NL MVP - Ryan Howard

Cy Young - Brandon Webb - Arizona Diamondbacks

Rawling's Golden Glove

Pitcher - Greg Maddux - Chicago Cubs/LA Dodgers
Catcher - Brad Ausmus - Houston Astros
1st Base - Albert Pujols - St. Louis Cardinals (Also helped win the 2K6 World Series.)
2nd Base - Orlando Hudson - Arizona Diamondbacks
Shortstop - Omar Visquel - San Francisco Giants (This is number 13 for him in his career.)
3rd Base - Scott Rolen - St. Louis Cardinals (Even though he's not talking to LaRussa, he's still playing defense.)
Outfield - Mike Cameron - San Diego Padres, Andruw Jones - Atlanta Braves, Carlos Beltran - New York Mets

Louisville Slugger's Silver Slugger Award

Pitcher - Carlos Zambrano - Chicago Cubs
Catcher - Brian McCann - Atlanta Braves
1st Base - Ryan Howard - Philadelphia Phillies
2nd Base - Chase Utley - Philadelphia Phillies
Shortstop - Jose Reyes - New York Mets
3rd Base - Miguel Cabrera - Florida Marlins
Outfield - Alfonso Soriano - Washington Nationals, Carlos Beltran - New York Mets, Matt Holiday - Colorado Rockies

Rich's Notes: Surprisingly, only two of the Cards got the Glove, and Rolen might not be around for long if Tony has his way. Surprising to see that Webb got the Cy, but not really. Also, it's scary how many awards that Howard got this year.

If you want more awards, go look them up. I like relievers, but I'm not putting up the fucking Rolaids Award.

American is up next...

The Yankees get younger

Gary Sheffield, who was pissed that the Yankees gave him more money, is now less pissed because he gets to go to a team who made it to the World Series before making me look like a total moron.

The Tigers get an outfielder/DH who, despite being 38, can still mash the ball like nobody's business. The Yankees get three right-handed pitchers (Humberto Sanchez, Kevin Whelan, and Anthony Claggett all of whom are younger than 23). And these kids, surprisingly, aren't bums, so this might be one of those rare win-win trades for both teams. The Tigers get a veteran leader who has been there before, and who knows Jim Leyland, and the Yankees get young, live arms that they can sacrifice on their altar out in left-center and have the dark lord Satan evil them up another string of World Series wins, capped off by a clutch-playing A-Rod.

Hey, if you're going to invoke Satan, then really put him to work and get A-Rod a hot playoff bat. You could call it Wonderbat, just like Homer Simpson used in the Springfield softball league.
