Well, part one went about as you may expect. So, let us push on to our second award of the year: defensive player of the year.
The results for this and the future awards may presumably be less clear-cut, and defense is a difficult stat to gauge without multiple years of figures to look at, so it should be interesting to see who comes out on top on this one.
I was tempted to put Billy Butler as a choice in the poll, in a "sometimes the best defense is no defense", but, meh.
