Here’s the final edition of the 2019 Halos Heaven Awards!

We cast ballots as if we were writers of the BBWAA, then added up the results using their very own scoring system. (This means for MVP, 14 points for 1st, 9 for 2nd, 8 for 3rd, etc. down to 1 for 10th. For Cy Young, 7 points for 1st, 4 for 2nd, 3 for 3rd, 2 for 4th, and 1 for 5th. For ROY and MOY, 5 points for 1st, 3 for 2nd, and 1 for 3rd.)

Like the BBWAA, we cast ballots before the postseason as not to be biased by results. Award finalists are announced today, with the results coming out day-by-day until November 14th, when we learn of the MVP awards.

Without further ado, here we go! Feel free to discuss below!

**WAR counts for pitcher are just pitching WAR.
