My UCB Awards Ballot

Figured I’d get this done and overwith. There were some tough decisions here.


1) Player of The Year:

Jhonny Peralta. He was an all-around success, performing Well on both offense and defense and exceeding expectations in both areas.

2) Pitcher of the Year:

Adam Wainwright. 20-8, 2.38 ERA. Enough said.

3) Game Of The Year:

Wainwright’s One Hitter.

4) Surprising Player Of The Year:

Pat Neshek

5) Disappointing Player Of The Year:

Justin Masterson

6) Rookie Of The Year:

Kolten Wong

7) Acquisition Of The Year:

Jhonny Peralta

8) Most Anticipated Cardinal:

It was Stephen Piscotty, but the recent acquisition of Jason Heyward has left his status up in the air, so I’ll go with Rob Kaminsky instead.

9) Cardinal Moment Of The Year:

“The Big City Leap” I’m quickly becoming a fan of Adams, and I love it when he suprises people with an excellent play, like he did here.
