American League

MVP: Alex Rodriguez, Yankees... but Magglio isn't far off.

Cy Young: Dan Haren, A's... but only because that's mostly determind by wins and ERA... but he hasn't been the best pitcher.

ROY: Dustin Pedroia, Red Sox... although I don't think people realize how good Dice-K has been.

Manager: Eric Wedge, Indians

National League

MVP: Prince Fielder, Brewers

Cy Young: Brad Penny, Dodgers

ROY: Hunter Pence, Astros

Manager: Ned Yost, Brewers

World Series: No comment. It's tough to pick my Red Sox after being swept by the Tigers but come on, the Sox started Julian Tavarez and Kason Gabbard in that series, so the series win was automatic for Detroit.

Manager: Terry Francona/Mike Scoscia

NL: I don't know

From MLB.com

Determining rookie status:

A player shall be considered a rookie unless, during a previous season or seasons, he has (a) exceeded 130 at-bats or 50 innings pitched in the Major Leagues; or (B) accumulated more than 45 days on the active roster of a Major League club or clubs during the period of 25-player limit (excluding time in the military service and time on the disabled list).

Fausto Carmona had 74.1 in 2006, I believe. So he's not eligible.

AL

MVP: A-Rod, NY Yankees (Unfortunately, I picked him over Mags. Though either one, really)

Cy Young: Dan Haren, Oakland (One of the few trades that kinda backfired on Walt Jocketty and the Cardinals)

R.O.Y: Dustin Pedroia, Boston (I guess. Haven't really paid attention to many AL rookies)

Manager: Mike Scoscia, LA Angels

NL

MVP: Prince Fielder, Milwaukee

Cy Young: Jake Peavey, San Diego (Just unbelievable this year)

R.O.Y: Hunter Pence, Houston (Pains me to praise and Astro, but it's warranted)

Manager: Ned Yost, Milwaukee (Hell of a turnaround for that club. Credit is due)

World Series:

LA Angels over NY Mets (4-0)

Almost put the Dodgers in there. I think the Brewers are gonna start to taper off, and really the Dodgers and Mets are the only legitimate teams to have a chance. Of course, the Cards only wone 83 games last year and we all know what happened. :D So they still have a shot (though extremely long)

As a Brewer fan it is my duty to tell you that Yost isn't that good. In fact, we would be ahead of the Cubs by even more games with a different manager. Prince Fielder does deserve the MVP. When it comes to the ROY race, Braun has the advantage over Pence. Braun was called up a month after Pence, and is still putting up similar numbers and should overtake him in HR,RBI,R,SB with Pence leading in average.

changing my ROY pick in the National League to Chris Young of the Arizona Diamondbacks

Eh, that .240 avg and sub .300 OBP is a problem for me. You have 19 HR's you should have more than 40 RBI's. He's terrible with RISP.

Ryan Braun's has a much better avg, more hr's, and more rbi's in about 100 less at bats. By the way, I'm changing my vote to Braun.

this is what happens when you get a little alchohol in your system. Braun is still my pick
