The 2012 baseball season was one of the most memorable of all-time. History was made seemingly every week, some big-name players hung up their cleats and it was the first season with the second Wild Card slot in play.
In a season that has seen so many crazy twists and turns, it's only natural that most of the major award races will be coming down to the wire.
Aside from American League Rookie of the Year, which is more of a sure thing than Mariano Rivera in the ninth, you can argue that the rest of the major awards have at least two legitimate, big-time candidates.
And you know what? I WILL argue. Thank you very much.
Read on to see who I think will win both MVP, Rookie of the Year, Cy Young and Manager of the Year awards.
