The MVP awards voted on by the Baseball Writers of America is announced Thursday but in the meantime Baseball Prospectus has announced the results of the Internet Baseball Awards Voting.
The award for Most Valuable Player was given to Buster Posey who beat out Ryan Braun and Andrew McCutchen by a fairly sizable manner.

Fresh off of winning their second World Series in three years, the San Francisco Giants have come to terms with Jeremy Affeldt, re-signing the left-hander to a three-year, $18 million deal.
Considering how high the Los Angeles Dodgers set the bar for signing serviceable but replaceable relievers, the Giants did well enough in keeping the total...
San Francisco Giants OF Gregor Blanco came into the 2012 season probably wondering what AAA team could use him as an everyday player. The last thing he could have thought was he would be the Giants everyday LF throughout their run to the World Series Championship. While guys like Pablo Sandoval, Buster Posey and Marco Scutaro led the Giants to their victory, Blanco remained a constant...
Based on reports from the last few days, the Giants have reportedly agreed to re-sign Jeremy Affeldt to a three year, $18 million contract. Predictably, the internet has responded with scorn.
Three years for a reliever. Might as well give the money to Jean-Ralphio “@marcoacosta28: @keithlaw you like the Affeldt signing ?”

The odd pattern of middle relievers signing multi-year deals looks like it will continue on Tuesday as the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants will be the latest to join the party. Jeremy Affeldt, who has been a key cog in the Giants bullpen over the past four seasons, is close to inking a three year deal worth a reported $18 million, according to Jon Heyman of CBS...
San Francisco is a city in high spirits regarding their sports teams right now. The Giants just won the Word Series last month and the 49ers are a Super Bowl contender. Despite playing a resilient St. Louis Rams team to a 24-24 tie yesterday (the first in the NFL since 2008), there was a special guest at Candlestick Park to take in the 49ers game.
That guest? The one and only Pablo...

Yes, in addition to commentary on the Giants, we have some characters, and they have lives too!
As a disclaimer, since three people will believe otherwise… The topic of this and the upcoming comics are a story I’d planned to touch upon since this comic was first brainstormed years ago. I wasn’t even planning to do it this week, but the ridiculous cliché about ties and the...
