New York BBWAA Dinner

If you’re like me, you can’t bring yourself to pay 50 cents for a copy of the rags they write for, so I’m having trouble getting my mind around paying $225 to have dinner with them:

Tickets remain on sale for this Sunday’s New York Chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America dinner at the Hilton at 6 p.m. The cost is $225, and may be obtained by calling 212-586-7000.

To be fair, there are going to be a bunch of ballplayers too, as Pujols, Pedroia, Lee, Lincecum, Soto, and Longoria receive their postseason award hardware. But that’s not all! Check out these local awards the New York Chapter gives out:

Sid Mercer-Dick Young Player of the Year: Brad Lidge
Ben Epstein-Dan Castellano Good Guy: Johnny Damon
William J. Slocum-Jack Lang Long and Meritorious Service: Greg Maddux
Casey Stengel You Can Look It Up: Mike Mussina
Joe DiMaggio Toast of the Town: Johan Santana
Milton Richman You Gotta Have Heart: Bob Klapisch
Willie, Mickey and the Duke: Bernie Williams and Ed Kranepool
Babe Ruth World Series MVP: Cole Hamels
Joan Payson Community Service: David Wright

Great. Now here comes the firestorm of articles about how the Casey Stengel You Can Look it Up Award never goes to the guy who is really the most lookiest up player.

Who is the most lookiest up player?  I like to think its Jeter. 

Typical Yankee Fan:  He’s a great fielder.

Everyone Else:  No, he’s not.  You can look it up.

Wait—Johnny Damon is a “good guy”? What is this, 1998?

I believe David Eckstein is most feared when he looks up (he rochambeaued Derek Lee twice that way) and will ride this into the Looking It Up Hall of Fame.

Isn’t Brad Lidge 30 or so? Best young player?

30 is the new “in High A ball at 19”.
