|Could Verlander sweep Cy Young and ROY?|
Baseball is headed for the stretch drive in August and September, and races for most of the major awards remain too close to call. David Ortiz seems like the favorite in the AL, but has he solidified his standing after SportsNation picked Jim Thome after each of the season's first two months? And how do you choose which Florida rookie is the best, let alone which rookie is the best in the entire National League?
If the season were to end today, who would you pick for all the awards? How has the last month changed your mind about award winners?
Here's a look at who you picked for each award at the end of June:
AL MVP: David Ortiz (Jim Thome won in April and May)
NL MVP: Albert Pujols (for the third straight month)
AL Cy Young: Johan Santana (May: Mike Mussina, April: Curt Schilling)
NL Cy Young: Tom Glavine (May: Brandon Webb, April: Greg Maddux)
AL Rookie of the Year: Francisco Liriano (Jonathan Papelbon won in April and May)
NL Rookie of the Year: Prince Fielder (for the third straight month)
