The List: Carter's MLB Award Races at the All-Star Break

For those of you  familiar with my MLB Power Rankings, you usually see the top 10 players at the bottom of the page. Those who most deserve the four major individual awards. These awards are the National and American Leagues Most Valuable Player Awards and Cy Young Awards—given to the Leagues’ best pitcher of that year.

As we head into the All-Star break, I’m going to do something a little different. I’m going to expand this a lot and give you my 25 guys for all four awards. I did some research, I typed in a few numbers and here’s what I came up with:
