An article by posted on April 3, 2013

Earlier today you saw our American League award winners, now we present to you the winners of the National League.  Each year our tireless staff of writers send in their predictions for the 2013 season, and the player with the most votes gets our pre-season nod for all that shiny MLB hardware. In the coming days, we will have plenty more predictions for the upcoming 2013 season. So without further ado, we present to you our 2013 MMO National League award winners:

NL Cy Young Award

Clayton Kershaw

With seven votes, Giancarlo Stanton takes the National League Home Run crown. In a close second with five votes was Mets first baseman Ike Davis (hopefully he can have a better first half in 2013) and in third was Jay Bruce with two votes.

With six votes, Ben Revere is our 2013 NL stolen base king. Everth Cabrera and former-Met Carlos Gomez came in at second with two votes a piece.

NL Rookie Of The Year

Zack Wheeler

Your 2013 NL Rookie of the Year is your very own Zack Wheeler! Wheeler took in five votes to best the likes of teammate Travis D’Arnaud, Jedd Gyorko, Oscar Taveras and Adam Eaton who each received two votes. Let’s just hope he’ll be up sooner rather than later for New York.

NL Comeback Player

Tim Lincecum

By a slim margin, Tim Lincecum is our 2013 NL Comeback Player of the Year. Lincecum had five votes with both Ryan Howard and Troy Tulowitzki coming in at second with four each.

So there you have it, our 2013 National League award winners.
