McCABE MAGAZINE SEASON 23 ALL-PRO TEAM

McCabe Magazine All-Pro Team and Season 23 Awards

Houston, TX (McC.com) – It’s that time of year when we here at McCabe Magazine take a look at season 23 and select the players who we feel are the best of the best. Here is the McCabe Magazine All-Pro squad and season awards.

Our MVP

Desi Cruz (1B/DH) of the Toronto Blue Jays is our MVP. Cruz led the entire league, American and National with a .347 batting average. He has 52 home runs and 115 RBIs, and help lead the Blue Jays to their sixth division title in a row. Now I know a lot of you are saying what about Calvin Pote, Chicago Cubs who is leading the league with in home runs (62) and RBIs (150)? And how about fellow teammate Alexei DaSilva (60 home runs, 127 RBI)? Our answer to those questions is simply this, 347 BA and the season 23 batting title. Enough said, and I rest my case.

McCabe Magazine Cy Young

Adam Bradford of the Anaheim Angels is McCabe Magazines Cy Young award winner. This season 22 rookie of the year won 20 games with a 2.70 ERA, and a league leading 1.00 Whip. Bradford and the Angels pitching staff are second only to the boundless San Diego Padre staff (3.43 ERA) in team ERA with a 3.52. Others receiving consideration for this award,  Wandy Duran, San Diego (22-8, 1.22 Whip, 3.38 ERA), Kid Richard, Los Angeles Dodgers (19-3, 1.06 Whip, 2.36 ERA), and Vince Garcia Anaheim (17-10, 1.03 Whip, 2.04 ERA).

Rookie of the Year

Storm Weaver, Rochester Broncos (24 HR, 71 RBI, 307 BA) is our choice as the McCabe Magazine Rookie of the Year. Now this was our toughness call, it came down to Weaver and Eury Banuelos (OAK) 25 HR, 69 RBI, and 325 BA. The tie breaker was games played, Weaver 152 and Banuelos 113 at the time of printing. However, I must admit, I’m still thinking about the decision. I would also like to mention a rookie that jump off the stat page that has a unbelievable 92 stolen bases, Anthony Wolcott of the Philadelphia Phillies.

Fireman of the Year

Trevor Sample (OAK) 47 saves on 50 opportunities, (1-1, 1.02 Whip, 2.06 ERA). This screwball pitcher became the Athletics closer in season 22 and was quickly awarded a 6 year deal at 36 million dollars which has proved to be a smart move by the club. Honorable mention, Pedro Manuel (SD) 49 saves, 1.16 Whip, 3.09 ERA, Scot Kane (KC) 39 saves 1.19 Whip, 2.37 ERA, Harry Escobar (TEX) 38 saves, 1.01 Whip, 1.65 ERA, and Arthur Roa (MIL) 37 saves, 0.92 Whip, 1.91.
