ESPN.com's Jayson Stark handed out his midseason awards today.

Josh Hamilton was in the AL MVP conversation, but Stark gave the nod to Detroit's Miguel Cabrera.

The Rangers, however, didn't come up empty handed.

Stark honored Rich Harden as AL Cy Yuk of the Half-Year. An excerpt on the reasoning:
There's always somebody willing to buy into the Rich Harden dream: This is going to be the year. The year he gets healthy and stays healthy. The year he throws strikes, pitches deep into games, makes 35 starts. OK, we'd take even 25. Well, guess what? This hasn't been the year.

Harden got the nod over Gil Meche, Ryan Rowland-Smith, Joba Chamberlain and Josh Beckett.
