**all stats as of the morning of 8/22/2019

Hello hello! We at Halos Heaven decided on this off-day to do a little fun with the end-of-year 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.) Of course, the season is not done, and things may still change. We hope to do another edition of our Halos Heaven MLB Awards Balloting in a few weeks, and then at the end of the season as well.

**WAR counts for pitcher are just pitching WAR.

Without further ado, here we go with the most obvious award of them all!
