Mo' Awards

So some more awards have been announced. Ozzie Guillen and Bobby Cox won AL and NL Manager of the Year, and I'm fine with that. Chris Carpenter won the NL Cy Young, and had not Roger Clemens already won a bunch of things I might be a little mad, but obviously that's not the case. I'm mildly angry about Bartolo Colon winning the AL Cy Young, but I'm saving my tantrum energy in case Andruw Jones somehow wins the NL MVP.

No major Rockies news to report yet. They've talked informally to Paul DePodesta about taking on an advisory role, but DePo is wisely waiting to see how the market shakes out. The rumor sites duly list Colorado's interest in Matt Morris, but I'll believe that when I see it. If Morris's choices are really Seattle, Kansas City, and the Rockies as ESPN Insider claims, he might as well come here. (Speaking of the Mariners, is this Ichiro trade business for real, or as the Daily Quickie speculates, is it just the evil New York Media stirring up trouble again?) Paul Konerko will get his money somewhere, although the White Sox ought to be able to afford him. And our division rivals in Phoenix are going to lose one of their best pitchers.

More when we get those MVP announcements.
