Found October 03, 2012 on Reds Minor Leagues:
Billy Hamilton and Tony Cingrani are up for multiple Minor League Baseball awards. Didi Gregorius is up for the play of the year (as is Cingrani). Delino DeShields is in a picture that is up for picture of the year. Go vote and be sure to vote Red. Speaking of Billy Hamilton, the Reds are officially stating that they are moving him to center field. I don’t have a problem with the move.

With his speed and athleticism, if Hamilton can even read the ball half way decent off of the bat, he should be very, very good defensively in center. Let’s talk awards. Who wins your MVP, Cy Young and ROY awards for each league and why? My picks (and not who I think WILL win them, but who I would vote for) are as follows: Cy Young AL: Justin Verlander. He is a workhorse who threw 238.1 innings with a ton of str...
