Spring Training Special Part 4: Awards

AL:
MVP: Johan Santana: 24 wins, 300K, 2.15ERA. First pitcher MVP since Eck.
Cy Young: Johan Santana; Can't win the MVP without the Cy Young, now, can we?
Manager of the Year: Ron Gardenhire: This is like giving Morgan Freeman an Oscar.
Rookie of the Year: Um, Ruben Gotay?
Homerun Leader: Alex Rodriguez; they say he's concentrating on hitting now; yikes.

NL:
MVP: Carlos Beltran; Called the Mets the "New Mets;" has to win the MVP or else.
Cy Young: I really want to say Pedro, but I'm going with Tim Hudson, who will slay.
Manager of the Year: Willie Randolph. I am on the Mets bandwagon until it crashes into the sea.
Rookie of the Year: How the fuck should I know? Somebody on the Rockies.
Homerun Leader: Jim Thome: that ballpark is silly. Thome for President.

Miscellaneous:
First off-field arrest: Barry Bonds: for tax evasion.
First on-field arrest: Milton Bradley for attacking the Philly Phanatic.
Comeback Player of the Year: Not Joe Mays. How about Richie Sexson? Esteban Loiaza? Cool.

World Series: I guess I accidentally predicted another Subway Series. Well, screw that, it's not happening. I'm still going with the Mets, since they can't have facial hair anymore and that's always a good sign. They get taken out by the baby Twins. I swear this looks like a real possibility. Just look at the Twins lineup for a minute. Of course, when a team looks that good on paper something terrible always happens to them. Still: Twins in six.

Next up: A break from sports. I promise. The Pope just died and everything.
