The award polls

We'll give this a post of its own.

AL MVP: Joe Mauer in a landslide. Shocking, isn't it? Mauer 24 votes (96 percent); Miguel Cabrera one (4 percent). I know who you are.

NL MVP: Albert Pujols, easily. Pujols 16 (83 percent), Hanley Ramirez two (11 percent) Chase Utley 1 (5 percent).

AL Cy Young: Zach Grienke, and I'm both surprised and pleased by the margin. Zach got 21 votes (95 percent); one (4 percent) went to "somebody else." Mariano Rivera, maybe?

NL Cy Young: Tim Lincecum in a fairly tight one. Lincecum 10 votes (58 percent), Cris Carpenter 6 six (35 percent), Adam Wainwright 1 (5 percent).

AL Rookie: Rick Porcello gets a plurality. Eight for Porcello (47 percent), Elvis Andrus 5 (29 percent), Gordon Beckham 3 (17 percent) "somebody else" one (5 percent). Interesting that Andrew Bailey (6-3, 26 saves, 1.86 ERA in 82-plus innings) got shut out.

NL Rookie: Tommy Hanson, barely. Hanson five (35 percent), Chris Couglan four (28 percent), J.A. Happ three (21 percent), "somebody else" — probably Andrew McCutchen, who I should have listed on the ballot rather than Randy Wells — two (14 percent).

My choices, by the way: AL MVP: Mauer; NL MVP: Pujols: AL Cy Young: Greinke; NL Cy Young: Lincecum; AL Rookie: Andrus; NL Rookie: Hanson.
