Vote for Greinke and Butler in the TYIB awards

The baseball awards season is winding down…a few awards have yet to be announced and you can help decide the winners!  Royals Zack Greinke and Billy Butler are among the nominees for the This Year in Baseball awards at MLB.com.

Zack is up for the Starting Pitcher of the Year.  The A.L. Cy Young winner faces nine top notch candidates from across baseball, including N.L. Cy Young recipient Tim Lincecum.  Royals fans, let’s get the vote out for number 23!

Billy was nominated for the Unsung Star of the Year honor.  The 23-year old had a breakout season, with career bests in nearly every category.   His 51 doubles rank second in franchise history to Hal McRae’s 54 in 1977.  He became just the fifth player in Major League history to have 50 doubles and 20 homers in a season prior to the age of 24.  The others, you ask?  Hank Greenberg, Alex Rodriguez, Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera!  Butler’s competition for the Unsung Star award includes eight promising position players plus pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez of the Colorado Rockies.

The voting runs through December 11.  Vote for Zack and Billy today!
