    It's unanimous. Verlander wins.

    I'm shocked.

    I guess the only shock would have come if it hadn't been unanimous.

    What are his chances to add the MVP?

    Not a chance with Jeter battling for the award.

    Keith Law's ballot listing Gio Gonzalez, John Danks, then Justin Verlander, was lost in the mail.

    Why the hell does MLB wait so long to announce their awards?

    They parcel 'em out one at a time for a couple weeks to keep baseball in the news.

    It's really only a week long.

    Both rookies on Monday.
    AL Cy on Tuesday.
    Both managers Wednesday.
    NL Cy on Thursday.

    Then the AL and NL MVPs are on Monday and Tuesday.

    They probably could have started a week earlier, but I don't have a problem spreading it out over a week.

    The awards are spread around so each gets its chance to be the in the spotlight during the period between the end of the World Series and Thanksgiving. The Gold Gloves, silver sluggers, Players' Choice, etc., each had their turn in the previous weeks. (Not that anyone cares about those.)

    I thought that was one very good idea Boras had, to package up a made-for-TV awards night the night before the World Series, the way they do in college football. Of course it was buried in his very bad idea of making the World Series a neutral-site affair.
