Believe it or not, there isn’t a typo in the headline. J.D. Martinez actually didn’t win the DH of the Year award for the AL.
When people, and players especially, say writers shouldn’t be the ones voting, this is why. This is, in fact, 1 BILLION times dumber than Martinez not finishing in the top 3 in the AL MVP voting. And that was pretty damn stupid.
The guy won the Silver Slugger for DH. Isn’t that basically the same thing as this?
Oh, wait, Silver Slugger is voted on by the MANAGERS and PLAYERS. Weird that those guys got it right.
(Side note: the author of the tweet above voted for Martinez. He’s an exception in this.)
