It's that time of year again. I love how I just posted this to my other blog.
1) Player of the Year: Albert Pujols
There's no mistaking that the 2008 MVP is our player of the year.
2) Pitcher of the Year: Kyle Lohse
Lohse surprised us all this year. I'm actually glad that we extended his tenure with us. Dave Duncan does his magic as usual.
3) Game of the Year: September 9 vs. Chicago
I'm going with this one because it was one of the few that I was able to catch this season.
4) Surprise Player of the Year: Ryan Ludwick
5) Disappointing Player of the Year: Jason Isringhausen
He lost the role again...I think Joe Buck was examining his psyche after SLU gave him his honorary doctorate.
6) Cardinal Rookie of the Year: Joe Mather
7) New Cardinal of the Year: Kyle Lohse
8) Most Anticipated Cardinal: Colby Rasmus
Rasmus is still the most anticipated.
