Jon Heyman released his picks for Rookie of the Year, Most Valuable Player, Cy Young, Manager of the Year, and Executive of the Year.
His MVP ballot included Jason Kipnis at #7. Heyman says of Kipnis, “Fine all-around player who didn’t get the pub of all of Cleveland’s veteran free-agent pickups.”
His AL Manager of the Year ballot places Terry Francona second saying, “Ex-Red Sox icon helped turn the Indians into a playoff team thanks to a 10-game winning streak to finish.”
His AL Executive of the Year ballot places Chris Antonetti second saying “the Ubaldo Jimenez trade looks worthwhile today, Scott Kazmir definitely was and all the Indians turned out better than most of us thought.
Also, he gives an award for the AL & NL Cy Old award (worst pitcher) and AL and NL Least Valuable Player Award.
