Halos Heaven MLB Awards Balloting, 9/16/2019

New, 10 comments

A little more argument as we approach the end of the year.

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

**all stats as of the morning of 9/16/2019

Here’s the 2nd 2019 edition of the awards! The first one, from 8/22, is HERE

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 at the end of the season.

**WAR counts for pitcher are just pitching WAR.

We also spent considerable podcast time (hopefully coming out tomorrow) explaining the choices we made.
