Now that the World Series is over, we can get to the important stuff … awards!
Yes, there have been a few awards handed out so far, by the Sporting News and Baseball America, but none of those are the traditional, prestigious awards that we talk about the most.
The Gold Gloves will be first, and they’ll be awarded on Tuesday night on a show on ESPN2, at 6:30 PT. Rawlings has announced finalists for the awards, and two Angels are among the candidates.
Mike Trout, not surprisingly, is a finalist in center field, along with Adam Jones and Austin Jackson. C.J. Wilson is up for the award at pitcher, competing with Jeremy Hellickson and Jake Peavy. (The link above has the list of all the finalists, at all positions, in both leagues.)
As for the BBWAA awards, those come out the week of Nov. 12. The AL Rookie of the Year will be Nov. 12, and the AL MVP will be on Nov. 15.
