>While the ROY, MVP, Cy Young, Gold Gloves, Silver Sluggers and Manager of the Year are the major awards to which people actually somewhat pay attention, there actually are a few other awards in the postseason that aren’t really worth mentioning, but I thought I would anyway.

AL Comeback Player of the Year: Francisco Liriano
NL Comeback Player of the Year: Tim Hudson
Also known as the Imagine What We Could Have Done Last Season If So-and-so Didn’t Get Hurt (IWWCHDLSIS&sDGH), a pair of pitchers who helped lead their team to the postseason this year walked off with the hardware… or plastic… I’m not really sure what this stuff is made of.

Delivery of the Year: Heath Bell
Can you imagine if his last name was Bar?  That would be so awesome.

Clemente Award: Tim Wakefield
Also known as the Most Likely to Die a Premature Death in a Plane Crash Award (What? Too soon?).

AL Hank Aaron Award: Jose Bautista
NL Hank Aaron Award: Joey Votto
So… let me get this straight.  Votto wins the Hank Aaron Award (given to the top offensive player in each league), and he doesn’t win the Silver Slugger?  Interesting…
