Official Awards Predictions 2009 (Complete With Top 5 Voting)

Figured I’d follow up my divisional predictions with the awards coverage I said I’d have.

Because I’m mean, I’m going to make you follow the jump. You can’t resist the urge to figure out why this post is tagged with “Luke Hochevar”! You know you can’t!

Official Division Predictions 2009

I just want to see how wrong I’ll be.

Actual predictions and pretty pictures are after the jump. (I do have AL predictions, I just don’t like their logo.)

Shameless Self-Promotion

You may have noticed the little box in our sidebar, below our wonderfully awesome tag cloud and above our absurdly technical copyright manifesto, that says “we’re on twitter!”, has an RSS logo, and displays a little sentence or two (frequently one mentioning Ollie Perez, but that’s hardly the point). This is our feed from Twitter, where I (Crane) microblog about stuff that’s usually baseball-related. Some of my recent tweets have touched on such diverse topics as software, Formula 1 merchandise, Roy Halladay’s cooking habits, and the seatbelts on old Buicks.

Interested yet? You can subscribe by clicking here, or you can take a look at my recent updates by clicking here.

We’re also on Tumblr, which can be found here. It’s also in our sidebar – we’re just ‘testing our tumblr feed’, as you can see, because we aren’t sure how it handles images and whatnot. Email me if you know how to change the background picture on a Tumblr theme.

We also run occasional liveblogs/liveglogs, whatever you want to call it — you probably didn’t notice, but I stayed up until 5 this morning haphazardly liveblogging the WBC Game 1: China vs Japan — through the lovely CoverItLive.com, which is so user-friendly that a sleep-deprived college student can successfuly set up liveblogs.

This wonderful ad appeared thrice (did I really just say that?) over the course of the game. Sorry about the link-through; I wasn’t sure if it would embed properly.

I may or may not have the courage to grab a Mountain Dew and liveblog tomorrow morning, or tonight, or whatever you want to call it (my circadian rhythm’s beat up pretty bad), but if I do, will you try to follow along? Please? C’mon, guys. I didn’t get a single liveblog reader, although the post containing the link got a couple hits.

Introducing: Your 2009 Europa Eccentrics

I have to warn you all that this is my first year running a fantasy team, so I might fail epically… but I’m pretty sure I’ll have fun. I’m in a Yahoo! public league, roto 5×5 (BA, RBI, RS, SB, HR, W, K, ERA, SV, WHIP), with 11 other teams. It was an autopick draft, and I had my priorities a little bit messed up — but without further ado, I present: Your 2009 Europa Eccentrics (with their 2008 stats in italics)!

Hitters:

  • C: Joe Mauer .328 BA, 9 HR, 85 RBI, 98 RS, 1 SB

I literally have nothing bad to say about this guy.
