hey, they got it right this year!

and frankly, joe blanton deserved to be in the top 3 or 4 as well.

Cano "Don't you know?" ended up in 2nd. That's a nice surprise.

Not a bad showing by Robby! Guess this means he's the best rookie who's not a pitcher. ;-)

And speaking of pitchers...Celizic thinks Mo deserves the Cy Young:

I'm fine with Street; he showed some real poise in some clutch situations. I'd put Gomes ahead of Cano, though, as the next choice. I'd have Blanton ahead of Robbie, as well. But congrats to Cano, he was clearly one of the finest rookies this year in either league.

I would pick Santana, Rivera, and then Colon.

I think Mo will win it.

I'm very upset--I just read that Colon was
flown by MLB to Miami either yesterday or
today. I haven't read they've flown Mo
anywhere. Does this mean Colon got it?

No. They hand out the awards in April.

Thanks, Cliff. But, why would the story say
that MLB had flown him into Miami today, and
quote Colon saying that he's very excited at
the possiblity of winning the award?
