New York Yankees 2009 Awards

In a season capped off by the acquisitions of C.C. Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Mark Teixiera, the admittance of steroid use from Alex Rodriguez and many other crazy things, the Yankees have the best record in baseball. How they did it, I don't know. They have many incredible players that are leading the way for the Bombers, and now is the time that i shine some light on the most talented players of the Yankees. It is time to give out the awards. Though you may think it is a little early in the season, it really isn't. There are about six weeks of regular season baseball left, which means that we've seen about 18 weeks of Yankee baseball, which is enough time to base the team awards off of. I also want to take a moment to mention the success of the team. Yes, the Yankees are in first place, and have the best record in baseball. But they have come a long way, in a sense. Last year, this team was filled with old players, such as Jason Giambi and Mike Mussina (though Moose was amazing last season). Now, they are younger, in a sense. While bringing in guys like CC Sabathia, AJ Burnett and Mark Teixiera, they have also made their team younger from last season. And the most important thing they have done has been delivering the talent and clutch ability. The Yankees have to be happy with the success of the three guys they signed this off season, because they have shaped the success for this team. Just to give some further insight, the awards will be the generic awards. The Rookie of the Year, Cy Young, the MVP. There will also be the Rolaids relief pitcher of the year, and comeback player of the year. So, without further ado, here are the team awards.
