MLB award season: The complete list of BBWAA finalists, plus Gold Glove update

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Angels Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Yesterday it was announced by the BBWAA that Mike Trout was yet again a finalist for the coveted AL MVP award. Just being in the running, yet again, was enough for us to look at just how historic this is for Trout.

But there are more awards to be given out in the coming weeks, now that the season is done, and if you’re a total baseball nut, then it’s fun to look at who made the cut (or who didn’t make the cut) and give your guesses as to who will take the hardware home this year.

The following are the complete list of finalists for all the BBWAA awards, and the dates that they’ll be announced:

Monday, November 14, 6:00 p.m. ET:

AL Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year: Michael Fulmer, Tyler Naquin, Gary Sanchez

NL Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year: Kenta Maeda, Corey Seager, Trea Turner

Tuesday, November 15, 6:00 p.m. ET:

AL Manager of the Year: Jeff Banister, Terry Francona, Buck Showalter

NL Manager of the Year: Dusty Baker, Joe Maddon, Dave Roberts

Wednesday, November 16, 6:00 p.m. ET:

AL Cy Young Award: Corey Kluber, Rick Porcello, Justin Verlander

NL Cy Young Award: Kyle Hendricks, Jon Lester, Max Scherzer

Thursday, November 17, 6:00 p.m. ET:

AL Most Valuable Player: Jose Altuve, Mookie Betts, Mike Trout

NL Most Valuable Player: Kris Bryant, Daniel Murphy, Corey Seager

Now, the bad news is that Trout is the only Angels player listed up there, but hey, I’ll take what I can get. With all the preemptive articles we’ve seen that are already counting on Mike Trout getting robbed, I think we’re all going to be surprised when he actually wins the award. Maybe it’s just wishful thinking on my part, but I think voters are going to do the right thing, and the “right thing” is always voting for Mike Trout.

One other thing to note: the Gold Glove award winners will be announced today. Will Andrelton Simmons and/or Carlos Perez take home a win today? Simba seems like a no doubter, Perez not so much.

So, who do you like? Who got snubbed? How many times would you vote for Mike Trout?
