The 2008 Pittie Awards

Well, the baseball season is over for the Diamondbacks, isn't it? I know this, because we finally were able to start getting caught up on the mountain of unwatched DVDs and Tivo'd television last night - we watched the three-hour Heroes special from last week, the first we'd seen of the show, having had it highly-recommended to us by more than one source. It was ok, but we felt somewhat lost: we may bump into it again, but it won't be added to perma-Tivo status. We have enough there already, between Fringe, Primeval and Dexter.

But it's now time to start looking forward to the off-season - and we start by looking back at the 2008 season, as I work on the end of season awards, known as the Pitties. I'm looking for nominations, particularly for Play, Performance, Game and Unsung Hero of the Year, so please throw your suggestions into the comments over the next week or so. If you don't, then I expect to hear no grumbling when your favorite is omitted from the final list of nominees! As a reminder, here are the categories and the reigning champions: 

  • Play of the year: Brandon Lyon, June 5 vs. SFG
  • Performance of the year: Micah Owings, August 18 vs. ATL
  • Game of the year: May 19, comeback vs. PIT
  • Unsung hero of the year: Chris Snyder
  • Rookie of the year: Chris Young
  • Cy Young: Brandon Webb
  • Most Valuable Player: Brandon Webb

There is also a poll over on the sidebar, to decide the last Player of the Month, so don't forget to vote on that one.
