While baseball dorks are fretting over the 2012 MLB awards (like Bryce Harper and Mike Trout wouldn’t win ROY), we’ve been racking our brains for the 1st Annual MLB WAG Awards. With categories like Twitter WAG off the Year and WAG Throwback of the Year, we’re giving out awards you baseball-hating guys actually care about. What did we learn about baseball WAGs this year? It’s still the best paying WAG job in sports. While NFL WAGs need to worry about their American Express-providing meal ticket being employed by 26, baseball WAGs are looking at massive new contracts. Take Larisa Fraser, fiancée of Ryan Braun. His new contract will pay him at least $120 million. The competition for these WAG awards was stiff. There was a battle for ROY WAG and plenty of discussion over the WAG Throwback of the Year. Let’s just say that John Lackey divorcing his cancer stricken wife in February was not the winner. MLB Relationship: Girlfriend of Derek Jeter Judge comments: “There were a couple di...

It is a foregone conclusion that when the American League MVP award is announced later today that Miguel Cabera will be declared the winner. The logic goes that Cabrera and his Triple Crown will simply be too much for the more traditional voters that make up a major bloc in the Baseball Writers Association of America. No matter how much stat-friendly pundits, including super...

Just when you thought everyone associated with the baseball was getting smarter, an awards voting comes along and proves we’re still really dumb.
Angels center fielder Mike Trout was shut out in the awards voting this month. He finished second in AL MVP, and he did not win a Gold Glove. Oh yeah, he did win AL Rookie of the Year. Whoopie. Excuse me if I’m not so excited about...
As noted here earlier, later on Monday the BBWAA will announce the two winners of the 2012 Rookie of the Year Awards. It’s expected that the winners will be Mike Trout and Bryce Harper, although the latter could conceivably lose in an upset. The awards are given to the best rookies from the American and National Leagues. No awards exist for the worst rookies from the American and...
Tonight, we will finally learn the MVP of the American League, a contest that really comes down to two candidates in Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers and Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels.
For the majority of the 2012 season the debate raged on who should ultimately take home the prize with traditionalist seemingly siding with Cabrera while the sabermetric junkies simply fell...

ESPN's Rob Parker, the man who makes Skip Bayless look like a professional sports analyst, has gained infamy across the internet for his comments attacking intelligence and individuals who prefer advanced statistical metrics to understand baseball. Why a man who went to Columbia hates learning new things is beyond me, but nevertheless, this jockular wagon that makes him look...
We've talked endlessly about Miguel Cabrera winning the AL MVP award over Mike Trout, and that's a debate we're not going to get into anymore. But looking at the balloting, there were plenty of players that didn't receive nearly enough support in either league for their performances this season. Here are some of them. Ben Zobrist, Rays. Seven points: one seventh...
I’m going to keep this extremely short! Miguel Cabrera won the TRIPLE CROWN! While Mike Trout had possibly the best rookie season ever, The Triple Crown is something that most of us watching sports these days have NEVER seen! In any other season Mike Trout is hands down the AL MVP! I’m not taking anything away from the kid, he just chose the wrong season to be a rookie.
The big news associated with the MVP award announced today will be the winners, especially this year with the Trout vs. Cabrera debate. Besides the winners, the below average players who receive votes get a bit of press. Today, I will look at another group of hitters, those who had a good season, but may not get a single MVP vote.
Last award season, I looked at what kept a hitter...
