Twins Announce 2012 Diamond Awards
The Twins Cities chapter of the Baseball Writers of America voted for the Twins 2012 Diamond Awards They will be presented at the Diamond Awards Ceremony on Thursday, January 24th at Target Field, kicking off Twins Fest weekend. Feel free to discuss:
MVP - Josh Willingham
Pitcher of Year - Scott Diamond
Most Improved - Ben Revere
Rookie of the Year - Scott Diamond
Determination and Leadership - Justin Morneau
Media Good Guy - Glen Perkins
Defensive Player of the Year - Ben Revere
Upper Midwest Player of the Year - Joe Mauer [PRBREAK][/PRBREAK]
Honestly, I can't disagree with any of them. One could argue that Scott Diamond could have also won the Most Improved. Some will argue that Joe Mauer could have been MVP, but since he got the Upper Midwest Player of the Year award, it's great that Willingham (who also deserved it) gets the MVP.
What are your thoughts?
