Gentlemen, mark your calendars so you can properly schedule your outrage: the Baseball Writers Association of America has announced the dates on which it will announce its awards:
Monday, Nov. 12: AL and NL Jackie Robinson Rookie of the Year Awards.
Tuesday, Nov. 13: AL and NL Managers of the Year.
Wednesday, Nov. 14: AL and NL Cy Young Awards.
Thursday, Nov. 15: AL and NL MVP Awards.
MLB Network will have hour-long specials each of those days leading up to the 4PM Eastern time announcements. Then Twitter will explode and everyone will copy and paste their arguments from September. It’ll be great fun!
