BBWAA announces awards finalists

The Baseball Writers Association of America announced on MLB Network the top three finalists for each league’s respective Rookie of the Year, Manager of the Year, Cy Young, and Most Valuable Player Awards.

Here they are. Remember that votes were turned in before the start of the playoffs.

Now for some stray thoughts. It’s weird not to see Clayton Kershaw‘s name in the top-three of the Cy Young balloting. He had a top-three finish in each of the past five seasons, but missed 12 starts with a back injury. Noah Syndergaard was arguably more deserving of a top-three spot than Lester or Scherzer. There’s also an argument to be made for Jose Fernandez’s inclusion. I’m also shocked that BBWAA voters didn’t push Orioles closer Zach Britton into the top-three, though not doing so was the right call. Will Trout be screwed out of yet another MVP Award?

The award winners schedule: Rawlings Gold Glove Awards (Nov. 8), Players Choice Awards (Nov. 9), Louisville Silver Slugger Awards (Nov. 10), Rookie of the Year Awards (Nov. 14), Manager of the Year Awards (Nov. 15), Cy Young Awards (Nov. 16), MVP Awards (Nov. 17), Esurance MLB Awards (Nov. 18).
