BBA – Goose Gossage Award

BBA – Goose Gossage Award

With the regular season over, and the playoffs heating up, its time to start with the yearly awards. The Baseball Bloggers Alliance votes for several awards. Here is a list of the awards that I will be voting on. As part of the Miscellaneous Chapter of the BBA, I will only be voting on the NL.

Connie Mack – Manager of the year
Willie Mays – Rookie of the Year
Goose Gossage – Reliever
Walter Johnson – Cy Young
Stan Musial – MVP

Today I would like to announce my votes for both the Goose Gossage Award for 2010.

Goose Gossage – Reliever of the Year for the National League
1. Brian Wilson – There were a lot of great closers this year, but Wilson had a phenomenal year as the closer for the San Francisco Giants.  With 48 saves he led the National League and added to that with a 1.81 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP, and 93 strikeouts in only 74.2 innings pitched. Wilson was simply unhittable and looks to continue his success this postseason.

2. Heath Bell – Bell came up short with a trip to the postseason, but he was amazing this year out of the pen for the San Diego Padres.  Bell’s stats are very comparable to our #1 pick Brian Wilson.  Bell finished the year 2nd in saves with 47, a 1.93 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP, and 86 strikeouts in 70 innings pitched.

3. Billy Wagner – Wagner’s last season was a great one for this all-time great.  Wagner finished the year with 37 saves, a miniscule 1.43 ERA, a 0.87 WHIP, and an astonishing 104 strikeouts in 69.1 innings pitched.  Wagner has announced his retirement from baseball and finishes his career 5th on the all-time saves list with 422.
