For my 1st place team, the Gramercy Riffs...
MVP: Miggy Cabrera (1st Round, 7th Overall). Definitely not the most consistent on the team, but when he turned it on, he single handedly won matchups for me. Would use a low #1 on him again next year.
LVP: TIE, Nick Swisher (10th, 114th) & Rich Hill (12th, 138th). Hill was supposed to be my #3 SP. Swisher was supposed to be... er, what the hell IS Swisher supposed to be?
Gold Glove (FPCT & Assists counted): Brian Roberts (3rd, 31st). Could make a good case for my MVP as well. A beast for extra base hits, runs, stolen bases, not to mention helped lead me to a 22-3-0 regular season record in assists.
Cy Young: Chad Billingsley (14th, 162nd). Supposed to be my #4 SP, but Lackey went down early, Young went down later on, Hill imploded, and all season long Chad was holding down the fort. The team went 16-9-0 in both Ws and Ks, 15-9-1 in IP... thanks Chad!
Old Young: Actually every pitcher other than Hill did well for me on this team- probably the main reason I won.
Best Draft Picks: Joakim Soria (15th, 175th), Jamie Moyer (23rd, 271st)
Best Trade: got Jason Bay, Orlando Hudson & Kurt Suzuki for Ryan Zimmerman, Placido Polanco, & Ramon Hernandez a the beginning of the season
My 3rd place team, Jamie Moyer 4 Prez...
MVP: Jamie Moyer (FA pick up after Dontrelle (22nd, 214th) went down immediately). Can you tell I love old man Moyer? Seriously everyone on my offense struggled badly at some point, except for Pedroia I guess, but I can't bring myself to give him MVP because he was my #2 second baseman behind Utley all year. Moyer provided veteran leadership in the clubhouse on both of my teams all season long and cost me nothing. He is a king among men.
LVP: Kenji Johjima (10th, 94th). Held onto K-Joh WAY too long waiting for him to turn things around.
Cy Young: TIE, Cole Hamels (5th, 47th) & Joe Nathan (6th, 54th). One round apart, my #1 SP and #1 RP, combined to lead me to 17-8-0 K record and a 17-5-3 SV record. Peavy was supposed to be my #1 but minor injuries and a majorly shitty team behind him threw a wrench into that plan.
Old Young: Fausto Carmona (12th, 114th). I watched one of this guy's starts get updated on MLB.com Gameday while I was at work early this season. I lost years from my life due to stress, put Fausto on the DL days later, quit the job shortly thereafter, and moved to South Carolina by June. Now I don't blame Fausto for all of that... wait, yes, yes I do.
Best Draft Picks: Dustin Pedroia (17th, 167th), Adam Wainwright (19th, 187th)
