  1. This might be too ottoneu-specific, but it would be interesting: do you have a way to run all the league winners’ rosters through some kajigger and find out which player(s) appeared on the rosters in aggregate most often? Call it the POP (Piece of the Puzzle) award, or something less stupid.

  2. I suspect you could call it the Mike Trout award

  3. Unfortunately, don’t have a good way to do this automatically…but let me think on it and maybe I can come up with a good way to collect rosters from every first place team…

  4. “fantasy managers aren’t known for their cuddliness”

    Stupid glasses and bony elbows.

  5. If MVP is relative to cost, then I can’t help but think that Headley is in the top 3 if he doesn’t win it.

  6. Headley should be an absolute lock for NL Fantasy MVP. As is Trout in the AL.

    Headley was not even drafted in most leagues.

  8. MVP NL – Headley obviously, Aaron Hill is the only other player I can think of that could make this list
    MVP AL – Trout obviously, Encarnacion if you have something against SB’s.

    LVP NL – Tulowitzki was an injury, Lincecum is a great choice I saw him drafted at the back end of the second round in some drafts, Votto and Kemp could appear here to some degree…
    LVP AL – Bautista, Ellsbury, Longo were all very injured and very expensive, A-Gon killed AL-only teams that drafted him in the first round when he got shipped to LA… Teixeira continues to disappoint.

    Cy Young AL – Jake Peavy, no one else is particularly close
    Cy Young NL – R.A.Dickey obviously, Gio a close second, but a more expensive player at draft time

    Bull Cy AL – Fernando Rodney
    Bull Cy NL – Aroldis Chapman
    ^ Both pretty easy choices

    Turtle -My first choice is Jim Johnson. 51 completely free and undrafted saves. Yes, we all read the article about how he doesn’t strike out enough guys. No one’s third closer does. For those of us that drafted Madson/Thornton, he was a godsend on the waiver wire before the season started.

    Hare – The Pittsburgh Pirates? Is that a legitimate answer?

  9. Trumbo for Hare
