In fact, Big Bad pointed out the lack of "love" for Bailey, and I noted that no one picked Coghlan. Turns out, they both won the awards yesterday. As a Marlins fan, I'm happy for Coghlan....he really helped keep the team in the playoff race down the stretch, and at the time he got called up, we were desperate for an OF that could hit. If he faltered, they didn't seem to have a backup plan.
Hall of Fame was a lock already for Mariano, but finishing for the Yankees is about your spot in Monument Park, for him and Jeter. Not that they wouldn't get in eventually, but there's some added cache to being a career Yankee.
