BBWAA awards finalists being announced on MLB Network

Tweet [1]

Brian Cashman is scheduled to speak to the media in about an hour. Not sure he’ll have much in the way of news, but we’ll find out.

For now, flip over to the MLB Network where the finalists for the BBWAA awards are being announced. You all know the BBWAA awards — MVP, Cy Young, that sort of thing — and this year the awards are being televised, [2] beginning with tonight’s show to basically announce which players finished among the highest vote getters.

All votes had to be sent on the final day of the regular season — I had a Cy Young vote this year — so these finalists aren’t going on any sort of ballot, it’s more of an early acknowledgement of which players finished in the running, with the winners being announced night-by-night next week.
