FanPoll: Royals End of Season Awards Part 1: Offensive Player of the Year

As we wait out the postseason, across the beam of the horizon sits the affable crystal trophies to be handed out to various Royals players for their contributions to another vacuous, somewhat meaningless season.  In honor of these players, and moreso to get an accurate representation of how the Royals Review community's opinion may compare to the organization's cockeyed perception of the value of the players they retain, herein shall be the People's Choice Awards for the Royals season.  Here is a list of the awards to cover in the coming weeks:

  • Offensive Player of the Year
  • Defensive Player of the Year
  • Pitcher of the Year
  • Alka-Seltzer™ Reliever of the Year
  • Rookie of the Year
  • Most Valuable Player

Some of these may be more readily apparent than others, bur what are we without due process?  Let us move on to our first award, Offensive Player of the Year, and the nominees:

Alex Gordon (.303/.376/.502, 23 HR, 87 RBI, 101 R, 17/25 SB, 6.9 fWAR)

Melky Cabrera (.305/.339/.470, 18 HR, 87 RBI, 102 R, 20/30 SB, 4.2 fWAR)

Jeff Francoeur (.285/.329/.476, 20 HR, 87 RBI, 70 R, 22/32 SB, 2.9 fWAR)

Billy Butler (.291/.361/.461, 19 HR, 95 RBI, 74 R, 2/3 SB, 1.8 fWAR)

Eric Hosmer (.293/.334/.465, 19 HR, 78 RBI, 66 R, 11/16 SB, 1.6 fWAR)

 

 

If there is one to be had, let the debating begin!
