MLB Awards Report Card: Grading the BBWAA's Picks for MVP, Cy Young, Top Rookies

Today's announcement of Josh Hamilton as the American League's Most Valuable Player means baseball's annual end-of-season awards series is over.

Few times of year breed as much controversy and debate amongst baseball fans as awards season. Over the last few weeks, we've seen countless arguments for who should win what and why, starting with Derek Jeter's Gold Glove and running nonstop until now.

The Rookies of the Year, Cy Youngs and MVP are voted on by members of the Baseball Writers Association of America; in each league, two writers for each team cast their ballots for the league's best players.

Now that all is said is done, it's time to ask: How'd they do?

In this slideshow are my grades for both the BBWAA's choices and their total votes for each award. What do you think—would they be proud to bring home this report card?
