The 2009 regular season is over and it's time to enjoy the ride toward the Fall Classic.

I will not give any over-analyzed forecasts, however, just for a fun prediction, the Boston Red Sox, as they did in 2004, will match up against Albert Pujols and his St. Louis Cardinals.

Sorry, no Dodgers' Manny Ramirez going back to Fenway Park.

This time of the year is also the perfect moment for the 2009 Latino Awards in the major leagues.

I respect other opinions. Here are my 2009 winners:


American League

Most Outstanding Player: Miguel Cabrera, Detroit
Most Outstanding Pitcher: Felix Hernandez, Seattle
