Well it's official, I have all the ballots, and here are your results in waves

Winner, and then under also receiving votes goes in order from second place to last

4th place
Yadier Molina

5th place
David Wright

6th place
Chase Headley

7th place

8th place
Joey Votto

9th place
R.A. Dickey

10th place
Aramis Ramirez

Also receiving votes (in order)
Giancarlo Stanton, Ian Desmond, Matt Holliday, Jay Bruce, Stephen Strasburg, Allen Craig, Craig Kimbrel, Madison Bumgarner, Carlos Ruiz, Ryan Zimmerman

Posey and Braun split the 1st place votes evenly, and Posey literally won by 2 points. The difference? Posey was second place on every ballot he wasn't first, but Braun was placed 4th on one ballot, and not second, which is what gave Posey the award.

Further proof that it's always important to fill the ballots out all the way, because of how someone can win based on their second or later place finishes. Pretty awesome.

AL Cy Young
Justin Verlander

2nd place
David Price

3rd place
Chris Sale

4th place
Jered Weaver

5th place
Felix Hernandez

Also receiving votes
Fernando Rodney, Jake Peavy

5th place
Matt Cain

Also receiving votes
Jordan Zimmerman, Craig Kimbrel, Stephen Strasburg

Verlander got all but one first place vote, Kershaw got the vast majority of the first place votes, with Dickey getting two and Gonzalez getting one.

American League ROY

Mike Trout

Also Receiving Votes
Cespedes, Darvish, Parker

National League ROY
Bryce Harper

Also receiving votes
Wade Miley, Todd Frazier, Aoki


Harper got most of the votes, with Frazier getting one first place vote, and Miley getting two. Trout won unanimously, with Cespedes getting most of the second place votes, but Darvish did have four. Cespedes was on every ballot.

American League Reliever of the Year Award
Fernando Rodney (ballot vote decided)

Also receiving votes
Johnson, Soriano, Cook, O'Day

It was great, Rodney and Johnson split all of the first and second place votes exactly evenly, and Soriano, Cook, and O'Day all equally shared the same number of 3rd place votes. We took to a ballot on PSD to determine the winner instead of having co-winners. Rodney won there.

National League Reliever of the Year Award
Craig Kimbrel

Also receiving votes
Aroldis Chapman, Papelbon, Steve Chisek, Jason Motte

American League Manager of the Year Award

Buck Showalter

Also receiving votes
Melvin, Joe Maddon, Ron Washington, Robin Ventura

Interestingly, almost everyone had Joe Maddon as their 3rd place choice, and he didn't get any first or second votes, and he ends up getting third overall, even though Ron Washington had a second place vote ahead of him and Maddon wasn't on everyone's ballots.

Mike Matheny, Clint Hurdle, Dusty Baker, Gonzalez

Shortstops were the two best votes in each league, both came down to barely winning it over the guy in second, and literally being left off a ballot kept Simmons from tying Barmes (if he had had one more third place). It was a very good, and close race in a lot of these, and I personally think we did a lot better job than those that actually did vote.

I will post Silver Sluggers later, likely tonight.

2 things:


1. It's just sad when a bunch of people on a forum can get the GG's more correct than people that are in this world for a living.

2:


Gordon, Buehrle, Barney, and Molina were the only unanimous winners (had all of the first place votes)

How the hell is Trout not a unanimous winner? :laugh2:

Someone (won't name who) voted for B.J. Upton first, and Trout was second for them, Span meanwhile got most of the second place votes

Adam Jones, the real-world winner, got one 3rd place vote

I'm not certain, but I think that was me. I was tired of looking up stats at that point so I just put a random center fielder down. I'm guessing that's what the coaches in MLB did as well.
