If you’re new to the VORG, please note that we give out our awards not necessarily to the BEST player for each honor, but for the most NOTABLE player. For example, Michael Fulmer and Corey Seager are the favorites for the Rookie of the Year awards. However, those two gentleman didn’t distinguish themselves in the slightly warped, silly, odd world of the VORG.
