Before getting into the meat of this post, you should be informed that I enjoy making bold predictions. So don’t be shocked when I predict Alfonso Soriano to win the MVP Award.
But in all seriousness, it’s pretty tough to predict who will win the MVP and Cy Young Awards this early in the season. You could go with one of two routes: the defending champ route, or as previously mentioned, the bolder route.
In other words, I could throw names at you like Pujols, Verlander, Halladay, and Reyes, or I could take more of a shot in the dark with my selections.

I’ll give you a bit of both, with my predictions and my players to watch out for; the guys I want to pick but don’t want to sound too ridiculous in saying.
So without further ado, here you go.
National League Award Predictions
For the MVP, I’ve been able to boil it down to two names.
