2014 Annual UCB Awards

Well, it’s that time of the year again–time for the annual UCB Awards.  If you aren’t familiar by now, each blogger casts his/her vote for a number of Cardinals-related categories, and the votes are counted at the end of November.  We’ve recently added a feature allowing fans/readers to vote for the awards too (which you can do here before November 30th).  My votes are below, though I did abstain from a few categories.  Stay tuned to see who takes home the hardware*.
