New Awards Names
Apr 29th 2021 By Canberra Cranberries

Well, the Awards are about to go out, and I’ve decided to rename a few awards after better players.

MVP Award: David Ladner Player of the Year: Ladner’s 22 season career was a great one, and he had it all, amassing 1,790 hits, 306 doubles, 102 triples, 436 homers, 1,091 RBIs, AND 614 stolen bases. His worst season was at age 42, where he hit “only” .269 with 16 homers and 19 steals. And that’s just crazy for a 42-year old.

Best Pitcher: Toli Centeno Pitcher of the Year: We all remember Centeno, as he retired 2 seasons ago and he had quite a career. He was 150-46 with 3 saves, but even crazier was that in a hitter friendly time like this, he posted an absurd 3.16 ERA and 0.906 WHIP! He was also a workhorse (1,781 innings), a strike out pitcher (1,546 Ks) and a control expert (193 BBs, 8.01 K/BB). So yeah, he was pretty good. He is about to turn 78.

Best Closer: Rhett Beltran Closer of the Year: Beltran was lights out, and he let you know. In 16 seasons, this guy was 11-15 but had 202 saves and a 1.86 ERA, he didn’t strike out many (153 K, 325 IP, 4.2 K/9) but he didn’t walk many (9.00 K/BB, 17 BB, 0.47 BB/9), he also had a minuscule 0.736 WHIP. This guy deserves it, even if it’s posthumous (he doesn’t have an age listed, so he’s prolly dead).

Rookie of the Year: Victoro Apocada Rookie of the Year: First off, his ratings are strangely symmetrical (75-97-75-97). Second off, he had a beast rookie season. The left fielder swept the MVP and ROY Awards in Season 93, hitting .442 with 38 homers, 99 RBIs, and a .907 SLG, one of the best seasons ever witnessed. And that’s why the ROTY is named after him.

Hope you understand the reasoning, feel free to talk civilly on the comments.
