Sizing up MLB player awards market


The MLB season is less than two weeks from the All-Star break, and for those trying to stay afloat navigating the big minus favorites and nightly bullpen meltdowns, it might be time to find other ways to make baseball plays. 


One way to expand your baseball portfolio, albeit late in the game, is getting into the player awards market. The best numbers are long gone, but sometimes a small piece of bruised fruit can still be sweet. 


These futures, perhaps more than any other bet, rely heavily on qualitative data. Handicapping here means getting into the minds of the voters, not just breaking down who is excelling the most in certain statistical categories. 


Don’t just bet on the player you think should win the Most Valuable Player or Cy Young awards, because unless you have a vote, that is a fundamental mistake.
