It has been an interesting first half of the baseball season.
The Dodgers have been on fire, winning 26 of 30 games going into the break. The Astros have run away and hid from the AL West. The Brewers lead the NL Central while the Cubs, Cardinals and Mets are below 500. The Twins and Rays are over .500.
Here are my choices for awards for baseball's best at the All-Star break:
AL MVP: Aaron Judge, Yankees
NL MVP: Paul Goldscmidt, Arizona
AL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR: Judge
NL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR: Cody Bellinger, Dodgers
AL MANAGER OF THE YEAR: AJ Hinch, Houston
NL MANAGER OF THE YEAR: Dave Roberts, Dodgers
AL CY YOUNG: Chris Sale, Boston
NL CY YOUNG: Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers
