For most of the second half, I was not just conducting the deGrom-for- Cy Young train. This might be the most difficult year to fill out a full complement of ballots that I can remember, and the AL More than ever I appreciate managers and the difficulty of their jobs. I just find baseball writers exceedingly

Rookie of the Year is the first award and will be handed out Monday. Manager of the Year awards come Tuesday, then Cy Youngs on Wednesday and MVPs on Thursday. All will be announced on MLB Network starting at 6 p.m. ET.

Who’s going to win the awards? Like most years, there’s a combination of shoo-ins and mystery. The Rookie of the Year awards seem like a sure thing, but there’s some debate to be had with managers and MVPs.

Report: Chargers' James poised to return in Week 13

  Report: Chargers' James poised to return in Week 13 Los Angeles Chargers All-Pro safety Derwin James is eyeing a return from a foot injury after the team's Week 12 bye, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. James suffered a stress fracture in his right foot during training camp. The 23-year-old underwent surgery in mid-August and was subsequently placed on injured reserve on Sept. 1. The injury was one James originally suffered before his sophomore season at Florida State, according to ESPN. James refractured the foot during a joint practice with the New Orleans Saints on Aug. 15.

MLB awards week has come and gone, with baseball handing out hardware for 2019's MVP , Cy Young , Rookie of Editor's Picks . How the top four MVP finishers unlocked their home run power. Which Rookie of the Year would you rather have for the next five years ? Sign me up for Pete Alonso.

Before we find out the winners, here are four of our MLB writers making their picks in each category. Before we do, consider this your annual reminder that all voting took place before the postseason and thus, October performance doesn’t factor into the awards:

Hannah Keyser

AL Rookie of the Year: Yordan Alvarez

NL Rookie of the Year: Pete Alonso

AL Manager of the Year: Aaron Boone

NL Manager of the Year: Dave Martinez

AL Cy Young: Gerrit Cole

NL Cy Young: Jacob deGrom

AL MVP: Mike Trout

NL MVP: Cody Bellinger

These are not surprising or controversial or even especially interesting picks! Christian Yelich getting hurt clears the way for Cody Bellinger to take NL MVP easier than he would have otherwise, but I'm choosing to not apply this logic to Mike Trout in the AL because he really is that good. I want to think I'm not factoring postseason performance into picking Gerrit Cole over Justin Verlander for AL Cy Young, and fortunately that's believable enough to avoid admitting it's not really true. It's tough to argue with stats which is why the manager awards are both the silliest and most fun to debate. Ultimately, two of the tiredest team-wide narratives in baseball this year proved sufficiently compelling to me: Dave Martinez keeping the Nationals' spirits high after a 19-31 start to the season, and Aaron Boone steering the Yankees to 103 wins despite a record-setting array of injuries — both in terms of sheer numbers and as well as star power.

AL Rookie of the Year: Yordan Alvarez

NL Rookie of the Year: Pete Alonso

AL Manager of the Year: Aaron Boone

NL Manager of the Year: Craig Counsell

AL Cy Young: Gerrit Cole

NL Cy Young: Jacob deGrom

AL MVP: Mike Trout

NL MVP: Christian Yelich

Covering Alonso (MLB rookie-record 53 homers), deGrom (frontrunner for back-to-back Cy Youngs) and Boone (103-59 despite an MLB-record 30 different players on the injured list) in New York on a daily basis was memorable. Trout and Yelich both winning MVP awards despite missing the end of the season due to injuries would be quite a feat. Cole gets the nod over Justin Verlander here, but maybe there should be co-honors.

Mets have a stud in Pete Alonso, but will they keep him?

  Mets have a stud in Pete Alonso, but will they keep him? If he continues hitting home runs at the pace he did in his 2019 NL Rookie of the Year season, Pete Alonso will pass Darryl Strawberry for most home runs by a New York Met sometime in 2023. © Provided by Oath Inc. Pete Alonso reacts after hitting a home run against the Atlanta Braves. Alonso won this year’s NL Rookie of the Year award. (AP) If he continues to rack up RBI the way he did last season, he will catch David Wright, the Mets all-time leader with 970, sometime in 2026. Even scoring 103 runs as he did in 2019, it would take Alonso until 2028 to equal Wright’s franchise record of 946.

NL Manager of the Year: Dave Martinez

AL Cy Young: Gerrit Cole

NL Cy Young: Jacob deGrom

AL MVP: [Answer withheld]

NL MVP: Christian Yelich

First off, I cast a ballot for AL MVP this year, so I can’t reveal my vote until the awards are announced. Cue dramatic music. I like Gerrit Cole over Justin Verlander for Cy Young even though the numbers were tight. Being unbeatable in the second half, was a tad more impressive. Jacob deGrom is the pick almost by default, as neither Ryu or Scherzer had the full body of work to warrant a Cy Young. Dave Martinez isn’t a finalist, but should be — from getting nearly getting fired to finishing the way the Nats did, that’s worthy of something. As for NL MVP, Yelich gets the nob despite missing the Brewers’ stretch run. Normally, I’d want someone who didn’t miss the most important part of the season, but Bellinger’s season was pretty uneven, with a significant drop-off in production in the second half.

Astros' Justin Verlander wins second AL Cy Young Award, but this one is even sweeter

  Astros' Justin Verlander wins second AL Cy Young Award, but this one is even sweeter Justin Verlander, 36, became the oldest pitcher to win the Cy Young Award since 42-year-old Roger Clemens in 2004. From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.“It would mean a lot to me,’’ Verlander told USA TODAY Sports in September. “Not just because of my age, but having gone through being at the top of my game, to going down and being hurt, and having people count me out, to getting back to where I am now.“It gives me some perspective. I am enjoying it more.

Most points wins. Nice and easy. Below are our voting results as well as a short blurb on the MVP , Cy Young , and Rookie of the Year races. Andujar has been the Yankees' best and most consistent hitter all season, though he also rates as one of the worst defensive third basemen in the game

AL Cy Young: Gerrit Cole

NL Cy Young: Jacob deGrom

AL MVP: Mike Trout

NL MVP: Cody Bellinger

The rookie picks are no-brainers and the manager field is so wide open that I'd be fine with any of finalists winning. I still think Martinez has the best resume just based on how Washington finished the regular season. The consistent dominance of Cole and deGrom make them easy choices, while Bellinger taking his all-around game to another level clinches the NL MVP. Trout and Bregman is a fun debate, but Trout produced massive numbers despite missing extended time. He's simply the best player baseball has to offer.
