I know what you're thinking. An awards article the first week of May? That's about as responsible as a Rashard Mendenhall Tweet.
Half the guys on this list will probably nose-dive immediately after I write it and I'll look like an idiot...but you know what? It's May and this is baseball and there isn't a whole lot else to talk about.
Trying to predict the favorites for these awards 20 percent into the season is like trying to predict who the next athlete will be that Twitter will make look like a moron. There's far too many options to choose from.
That being said, I'm going to give it my best go and deliver you the players who I think are the early favorites to win Baseball's top awards.
