And here we are. Another MLB regular season has come to an end. The playoffs are in full swing, with the handful of remaining teams doing everything within their power to make it to the World Series.

However, the league’s individual honors aren’t predicated on playoff performance. These awards are for the regular season. And while there was a fair amount of up-and-down over the course of the year, a lot of these names are ones that aren’t the least bit surprising. There are arguments to be made – there always are – but I’m comfortable with the selections that I’ve made. As always with this sort of thing, your mileage may vary.

Here we go: 2019’s final Clubhouse Leaders.

And down the stretch they come.

We’re in mid-August and entering the home stretch of the Major League Baseball season. By the time you read this, teams will have roughly 40 games left until playoff time. It looks like there are some foregone conclusions, but also a few hard-fought races – particularly for some of the squads battling it out for wild card spots.

The competition for MLB’s individual awards looks a little different. We have a little bit of turnover from midseason, but it has mostly been holdover chalk; some of our picks at the halfway mark have really solidified their positions. While we’ve got a couple of two- or three-man races, it’ll really take some leaps for anyone else to crowd their way in. But hey – six weeks is a LONG time. And a lot can happen. We’ll just have to see how it plays out.

This is Clubhouse Leaders.

While we tend to treat the All-Star Game as the midway point of the MLB season, the reality is that the actual halfway point is right now. As of press time, all major league teams have reached the 80-game mark, leaving us with fully 50% of the 2019 campaign in the books.

And things have definitely changed.

All of the first-quarter picks have fallen by the wayside; there has been a lot of turnover at the top. That said, a couple of players have continued along their paths toward postseason hardware, only to be overtaken by players that managed to somehow find yet another gear, launching them into the stratosphere and making us genuinely question what their ceilings might actually be (looking at you, Mike Trout).

Ladies and gentlemen, your Clubhouse Leaders.

So we’re pulling the trigger just a little early for our final MLB Award picks. There are still a handful of games left to be played as this goes to print, but the truth is that none of the races are so close that the final picks are likely to change.

(Feel free to point this out to me after one of the contenders goes off and hits half-a-dozen homers or whatever and makes me look foolish.)

It has been a remarkable year in Major League Baseball, with all of the requisite ups and downs that come with the longest regular season in American professional sports. Through it all, there have been a few players who have outshined the rest. Some have been steady all season, while others have ridden periodic, meteoric hot streaks to gaudy final numbers. All have earned their spots in this conversation, but there can only be one winner of these trophies.

Here they are: 2018’s final Clubhouse Leaders.

Yes, yes, I know. We tend to view the All-Star break as midseason and that’s not for a couple more weeks. However, when you’re reading this, we’re going to be right around the 80-game mark, which is the ACTUAL middle of a 162-game season.

And so here we are with Clubhouse Leaders.

Published in Sports

Major League Baseball has the longest season of any of the major professional sports leagues, with 162 games to be played before reaching the October postseason. That many games leaves room for a lot of changes to happen over the season's six-month course.

We’re approaching the one-quarter mark and what we see can start to be taken seriously. With just over 40 games in the books, a significant chunk of the 2018 season is in the rearview mirror. There have been some impressive performances thus far; let's look at one man's opinion regarding who would win MLB's major individual awards if the season ended today.

By the time you read this, the official halfway point of the Major League Baseball season will have passed; the unofficial halfway point – the All-Star Game – just a few days away.
