2012 Baseball Bloggers Alliance Awards Ballot

The Baseball Bloggers Alliance deadline for voting in the 2012 Awards is today. So, I'm going to post my ballot today to get the vote in, then explain my reasoning later in the season.

I've been busy lately, so I would just like to take this time to say: Go Orioles and Cardinals!*

2Bob Melvin, AthleticsDusty Baker, Reds
3Joe Maddon, RaysFredi Gonzalez, Braves

*I suppose I won't be too angry if the Nationals win. I can get behind them-they're a great story, and a first-time pennant winner is always nice. Not happening for the Yankees, though.

** Apologies for the table weirdness  I had an urge to dust off my HTML skills, though, and I think it made my voting marginally clearer.
