Baseball Awards That Don't Exist But Should
Posted 30 September 2012 - 08:12 AM
The Rollie Fingers Most Outstanding Facial Hair Award:
Brian Wilson (could probably win every year)
The Mickey Hatcher Most Oblivious Player Award:
Carlos Gomez (completing a home run trot on a foul ball... seriously?)
The Rick Reuschel Award For Best Out-Of-Shape Player:
The Graig Nettles/Luis Tiant Former Twin Most Outstanding Player Award:
RA Dickey (Jason Kubel was pushing here for a while, but Dickey has been fabulous all year)

The Rollie Fingers award - Brian Wilson hasn't pitched all year and Sergio Romo has as good or better a beard in the same exact bullpen, so I'd go Romo
The Mickey Hatcher Award should be known as the Shane Victorino award just because he's so universally hated by his teammates and opponents that he was allowed to run out a home run on a foul ball as no one told him different, including his own coaches as he rounded the bases. He's also the one who famously stepped into a catcher's throw back to the pitcher, creating one of the greatest gif's of all time.
The Rick Reuschel award not going to Bartolo Colon or CC Sabathia is an upset.

How about the Heinie Manush Award for Most Outstanding Name in Baseball?
I'll nominate Jordany Valdespin and Jurickson Profar

I think this also needs to include players who unneccessarily slide headfirst into first.
There should be an award for that too. The Michael Cuddyer dislocated index finger.
Like this, but bronze
