Every year, Through The Fence Baseball puts it to a vote on the top award winners of the year. We cover all the “normal” awards like Manager of the Year and Cy Young, but we also vote on the Worst Player of the Year and the player who complains the most. We have some fun with it and the results … well, you can see for yourself. Of the impressive staff at TTFB, 24 voters weighed in.
