The Baseball Bloggers Alliance is an organization of baseball writers around the country and around the world. The alliance is split into chapters based on teams affiliations, fantasy baseball writers, historians, etc. Your host for this site is the president of the General Chapter which features writers who are generalists. In other words, we don't write about any one team (though we may root for one). Each year, the BBA encourages its member sites to vote on the various BBA awards handed out in October. Awards already announced have included the Willie Mays Award (top rookies), the Connie Mack Award (top managers), the Goose Gossage Award (top relievers) and the Walter Johnson Award (top pitchers). The last award on our agenda is the Stan Musial Award which is awarded to each league's top players. After polling General Chapter members, this is the General Chapter's official Stan Musial Award ballot which is cast as a block vote. Much thanks goes to all General Chapter members who worked hard to make this ballot possible.
Here is our vote:
As you can see (if you can't, simply click on the pictures above to make them larger), Matt Kemp got the top spot in the National League and Jose Bautista won our top spot in the American League. Kemp was on the most ballots in the NL while Curtis Granderson was on the most ballots in the AL.
The following sites voted. Please visit their sites often as they are terrific.
