Finalists for the BBWAA awards were announced tonight, with no Yankees making the cut. The finalists are basically the top three vote-getters for each award, so it’s not a big surprise that the Yankees were shut out. Their best shot might have been Joe Girardi cracking the top three for Manager of the Year. My vote this year was for MVP.
Award winners will be announced next week. Here are the finalists.
AL Rookie of the Year: Chris Archer, Jose Iglesias, Wil Myers
NL Rookie of the Year: Jose Fernandez, Shelby Miller, Yasiel Puig
AL Manager of the Year: John Farrell, Terry Francona, Bob Melvin
NL Manager of the Year: Fredi Gonzalez, Clint Hurdle, Don Mattingly

NL Cy Young Award: Jose Fernandez, Clayton Kershaw, Adam Wainwright
AL Most Valuable Player: Miguel Cabrera, Chris Davis, Mike Trout
NL Most Valuable Player: Paul Goldschmidt, Andrew McCutchen, Yadier Molina
