MVP and Cy Young awards will be handed out in a few weeks. Only one player from each league can win the awards, but every MLB team has players that were critical to the ballclub.
Regardless of the amount of success a team had, every roster has players that are worthy of recognition for their accomplishments on the diamond in 2011.
I have selected one position player and one pitcher from each team to receive their team's MVP and Cy Young awards.
In some cases they were clearly the best players on the team, and in others they were overlooked players that made huge contributions to their franchise's season. I didn't use any magic formula to make these selections, but used WAR, season statistics and impact on the team's success as guidelines for making choices.
I'm sure there will be debates over my selections, and I welcome feedback and comments.
Here are the MVP and Cy Young awards for all 30 MLB teams.
