The Sir Sidney Ponson Award. It goes to the player who is said they are going to succeed but actually sucks the most in each league. I believe Milton Bradley or Brad Lidge and Dustin Pedroia would get it this year.

2008:

AL:Dontrelle Willis

NL:Mark Mulder

Past winners:

Dontrelle Willis, Mark Mulder, Sidney Ponson(2006-2007)

I think it would be successful. Heck, make it so BBWAA has no say and let the fans vote from a list of players. One from each team, that was hyped up to have a great season, but in reality sucked. I would vote.

Where can I comment?
