IBWA Awards
The IBWA (Internet Baseball Writers Association) has announced its 2004 award winners. As an actual voter in this election, proudly do I spread the word here.

NL Player of the Year: Bonds
AL Player of the Year: Guerrero

NL Pitcher of the Year: Johnson
AL Pitcher of the Year: Santana

NL Debut of the Year: Greene
AL Debut of the Year: Crosby

NL Manager of the Year: Cox
Al Manager of the Year: Showalter

NL Executive of the Year: Jocketty
AL Executive of the Year: Epstein

Full results are listed over at All-Baseball. Greinke finished a strong second in the AL Debut voting, and was the only "candidate" that was anywhere close to Oakland's Bobby Crosby. Personally, I voted for Greinke, and believe that his was the stronger performance, but alas, the affinity between internet writers and the opinions of Billy Beane is well-documented.

All Royals fans should be proud to note that Allard Baird did receive one vote for AL Executive of the Year, can you guess who cast it???
