Predicting MLB award winners

Every year, awards are given out to some of the best baseball players in Major League Baseball (MLB). However, I always find that these awards are very inconsistent.

Boo Yankees

Victoria: I say I was raised a Mets fan because I was; my father is a huge Mets fan and he instilled that value in his daughters. We even have a sign outside of our house that says Mets Fans Parking Only—this is not a joke. But we aren’t actually all Mets fans. My mother […]
