No Yankees among major awards finalists


Finalists for the four major awards were announced tonight, and, unsurprisingly, no Yankees made the cut. Joe Girardi was the team’s best hope for a finalist, but a Yankees manager doesn’t get many votes if the team misses the postseason. It’s just the way it is. Girardi and several players will get down ballot votes (Robinson Cano for MVP, specifically) for the various awards, which will be announced next week. All of the finalists are right here.

    Don’t know if it’s been reported hear but Joe Espada has been hired for scouting.Glad new blood is being used but nothing will change until Oppenheimer is fired and Cashman has less control in the draft and developing.

      Well they recently re-signed Opp so he won’t be fired anytime soon.

        …not to mention scouting doesn’t appear to be the issue. Development is the bigger question.
