IBWAA Members Suspended For Questionable Ballots

There’s some wacky fun times happening in the Internet Baseball Writers Association of America.

Miguel Cabrera for AL MVP, a bad choice, but a little bit understandable because there’s history there. But Ian Kinsler? Justin Upton? CAMERON MAYBIN??? Michael Fulmer for AL Cy Young?!?!? Are you serious? K-Rod for Reliever? And Brad Ausmus for AL Manager of the Year?



Your F.I. team might be homers, but this is ridiculous. At least we don’t have a legitimate vote in something. I would like to think that if any of us became IBWAA voters, we would be honest and fair about things. Not vote for retired players and/or openly troll. Brad Ausmus for AL Manager of the Year. Shaking my goddamn head over here.

  1. I’m going to suggest that the writer might have been doing this as some kind of elaborate and ill-conceived joke. Perhaps he wanted to see if people were paying attention:

    David Price and Rick Porcello were listed under “NL Cy Young”. That would be a surprise to either one of them.

    Trevor Rosenthal was listed as second for NL Reliever. Rosenthal pitched 40 innings with a hurt arm and accumulated an ERA of 4.4 and a WHIP of 1.9(!).

    Either he was really drunk, or this was some attempt to check if the system was working.

    But I have no sympathy. Clean out the idiots.
