Scott Cullen digs into the numbers to make his picks for awards, Gold Gloves, All-Surprise and All-Disappointing teams for the 2013 Major League Baseball season. AL MVP Mike Trout, CF, L.A. Angels (27 HR, 97 RBI, 33 SB, .323 AVG, .988 OPS) Runners Up: Miguel Cabrera, 3B, Detroit (44 HR, 137 RBI, .348 AVG, 1.078 OPS) Chris Davis, 1B, Baltimore (53 HR, 138 RBI, .286 AVG, 1.004 OPS) It may not be as glaring as last year, when he was passed over -- and hell surely be overlooked for Cabrera again this year -- but Mike Trouts complete game just cant be ignored. This isnt an indictment of Cabrera, whose OPS was a career high despite a late-season slump. But the reason that Cabrera is going to win is because his team reached the postseason while Trouts team finished below .500 and were still at the point where individual awards get viewed through the prism of team accomplishments. By the way, epic season, Chris Davis, but its only good enough for third. NL MVP Andrew McCutchen, CF, Pittsburgh (21 HR, 84 RBI, 27 SB, .317 AVG, .911 OPS) Runners-up: Paul Goldschmidt, 1B, Arizona (36 HR, 125 RBI, 15 SB, .302 AVG, .952 OPS) Joey Votto, 1B, Cincinnati (24 HR, 73 RBI, .305 AVG, .926 OPS) A strong finish to the season lifted McCutchen past the two first basemen who have excelling all season. That McCutchen plays a much more demanding position cant be overlooked in the final analysis and he even has the narrative working for him after the Pirates reached the playoffs for the first time in 20 years. I tend to avoid pitchers as MVP, but this could be a year in which an ace starter, Dodgers LHP Clayton Kershaw, warrants selection. AL CY YOUNG Max Scherzer, Detroit (21-3, 2.90 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 240 K, 214 1/3 IP) Runners Up: Hisashi Iwakuma, Seattle (14-6, 2.66 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, 185 K, 219 2/3 IP) Yu Darvish, Texas (13-9, 2.83 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 277 K, 209 2/3IP) While those using an outdated measure like a pitchers record can take comfort in Scherzers 21-3 mark, he appeals to the advanced stats crowd too, with a 6.4 fWAR, which is second-best in baseball and his 10.08 strikeouts per nine innings, which also ranks second, behind Darvish (11.89). Both Darvish and Iwakuma left a high percentage of runners on base, ranking first and second, respectively and, as a result, ranked third and fourth in the American League in ERA. NL CY YOUNG Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles (16-9, 1.83 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, 232 K, 236 IP) Runners-up: Adam Wainwright, St. Louis (19-9, 2.94 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, 219 K, 241 2/3 IP) Matt Harvey, N.Y. Mets (9-5, 2.27 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, 191 K, 178 1/3 IP) Its a testament to how great Kershaw has been this season that its not even a race for the NL Cy Young, even though the performances of Wainwright, Harvey, Madison Bumgarner, Cliff Lee and Jose Fernandez were outstanding too. Kershaw is in his own class, though, allowing two or fewer earned runs in 26 of his 33 starts. AL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR Wil Myers, RF, Tampa Bay (13 HR, 53 RBI, .293 AVG, .831 OPS) Runners Up: Dan Straily, LHP, Oakland (10-8, 3.96 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, 124 K, 152 1/3 IP) Jose Iglesias, SS/3B, Detroit (3 HR, 29 RBI, .303 AVG, .735 OPS) The American League rookie class is ugly enough that a little more than half a season of Wil Myers is good enough to win by a reasonably comfortable margin. Strailys strong finish (1.95 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in his last half dozen starts) lifts him ahead of the rest of the contenders, but the AL rookies arent nearly as compelling as those in the National League. NL ROOKIE OF THE YEAR Jose Fernandez, RHP, Miami (12-6, 2.19 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, 187 K, 172 2/3 IP) Runners-up: Yasiel Puig, RF, Los Angeles (19 HR, 42 RBI, 11 SB, .319 AVG, .925 OPS) Hyun-Jin Ryu, LHP, Los Angeles (14-8, 3.00 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 154 K, 192 IP) It looked like Puig would be a shoo-in to win this award, taking the league by storm from the moment he arrived, but Fernandez posted a 1.32 ERA in the second half, leading all NL pitchers and maintaining the gap ahead of the Dodgers Puig and Ryu. Such was the depth of the National League rookie class that Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado, Padres 2B Jedd Gyorko, Diamondbacks CF A.J. Pollock and Cardinals RHP Shelby Miller all had fine seasons but didnt do enough to get consideration. GOLD GLOVESC - Russell Martin, Pittsburgh Runners-up: Yadier Molina, St. Louis; A.J. Ellis, Los Angeles An incredible season for Martin, who led in Defensive Runs Saved, just ahead of the always brilliant Molina. Ellis threw out 44.4% of the runners that tried to steal on him, best among starting catchers. 1B - Anthony Rizzo, Chicago Cubs Runners-up: Paul Goldschmidt, Arizona; Brandon Belt, San Francisco Rizzo and Goldschmidt were 1-2 in Defensive Runs Saved and while Belt wasnt that high, he fared better in Ultimate Zone Rating. 2B - Dustin Pedroia, Boston Runners-up: Darwin Barney, Chicago; Ben Zobrist, Tampa Bay Its a toss-up between Pedroia and Barney, with Pedroia having more Defensive Runs Saved and Barney an edge in Ultimate Zone Rating. 3B - Manny Machado, Baltimore Runners-up: Nolan Arenado, Colorado; Juan Uribe, Los Angeles Both Machado and Arenado are exceptional in the field, and Machado gets the nod because he played 280 more innings at the hot corner. Uribe and Evan Longoria are very good too, but a notable step behind the two young third basemen. SS - Andrelton Simmons, Atlanta Runners-up: Troy Tulowitzki, Colorado; Yunel Escobar, Tampa Bay Its remarkable how far ahead Simmons is compared to the rest of the shortstops in baseball, but hes miles ahead by every metric. In addition to Tulowitzki and Escobar, Pedro Florimon and Alcides Escobar are pretty handy with the glove too. LF - Starling Marte, Pittsburgh Runners-up: Alex Gordon, Kansas City; Andy Dirks, Detroit Marte has been excellent, but Gordon closed the gap as the year wound down. Dirks holds a slight edge over Yoenis Cespedes, Carl Crawford and David Murphy. CF - Carlos Gomez, Milwaukee Runners-up: Juan Lagares, N.Y. Mets; A.J. Pollock, Arizona Gomez has always been an outstanding fielder and is the head of the class this year, but maybe only because Lagares didnt play a full-time role for the Mets, as Lagares had a better UZR/150 and more Defensive Runs Saved per game/inning played. RF - Shane Victorino, BostonRunners-up: Gerardo Parra, Arizona; Josh Reddick, Oakland Victorino is a natural centre fielder and Parra plays all three spots, so there is likely something to the range theyve shown in other positions manifesting itself in right field performance. Reddick fields well enough to stay in the lineup despite a bad year at the plate and just enough to stay ahead of Jay Bruce for a runner-up spot. (I realize there are Gold Gloves awarded in both leagues. Im just trying to recognize the best fielders at each position.) ALL-SURPRISE TEAM C - Jason Castro, Houston (18 HR, 56 RBI, .276 AVG, .835 OPS) 1B - Chris Davis, Baltimore (53 HR, 138 RBI, .286 AVG, 1.004 OPS) 2B - Matt Carpenter, St. Louis (11 HR, 78 RBI, .318 AVG, .873 OPS) SS - Jean Segura, Milwaukee (12 HR, 49 RBI, 44 SB, .294 AVG, .752 OPS) 3B - Josh Donaldson, Oakland (24 HR, 93 RBI, .301 AVG, .883 OPS) LF - Starling Marte, Pittsburgh (12 HR, 35 RBI, 41 SB, .280 AVG, .784 OPS) CF - Coco Crisp, Oakland (22 HR, 66 RBI, 21 SB, .261 AVG, .779 OPS) RF - Jayson Werth, Washington (25 HR, 82 RBI, .318 AVG, .931 OPS) SP - Anibal Sanchez, Detroit (14-8, 2.57 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 202 K, 182 IP) SP - Matt Harvey, N.Y. Mets (9-5, 2.27 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, 191 K, 178 1/3 IP) SP - Jose Fernandez, Miami (12-6, 2.19 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, 187 K, 172 2/3 IP) SP - Bartolo Colon, Oakland (18-6, 2.65 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, 117 K, 190 1/3 IP) SP - Hisashi Iwakuma, Seattle (14-6, 2.66 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, 185 K, 219 2/3 IP) RP - Koji Uehara, Boston (21 SV, 1.09 ERA, 0.57 WHIP) ALL-DISAPPOINTING TEAM C - Miguel Montero, Arizona (11 HR, 42 RBI, .230 AVG, .642 OPS) 1B - Albert Pujols, L.A. Angels (17 HR, 64 RBI, .258 AVG, .767 OPS) 2B - Danny Espinosa, Washington (3 HR, 12 RBI, .158 AVG, .465 OPS) SS - Starlin Castro, Chicago Cubs (10 HR, 44 RBI, .245 AVG, .631 OPS) 3B - David Freese, St. Louis (9 HR, 60 RBI, .262 AVG, .721 OPS) LF - Josh Willingham, Minnesota (14 HR, 48 RBI, .208 AVG, .709 OPS) CF - B.J. Upton, Atlanta (9 HR, 26 RBI, 12 SB, .184 AVG, .557 OPS) RF - Josh Hamilton, L.A. Angels (21 HR, 79 RBI, .250 AVG, .739 OPS) SP - Ian Kennedy, San Diego (7-10, 4.91 ERA, 1.40 WHIP) SP - Phil Hughes, N.Y. Yankees (4-14, 5.19 ERA, 1.46 WHIP) SP - Josh Johnson, Toronto (2-8, 6.20 ERA, 1.66 WHIP) SP - CC Sabathia, N.Y. Yankees (14-13, 4.78 ERA, 1.37 WHIP) SP - Jeremy Hellickson, Tampa Bay (12-10, 5.17 ERA, 1.35 WHIP) RP - John Axford, St. Louis (0 SV, 4.02 ERA, 1.52 WHIP) Scott Cullen can be reached at Scott.Cullen@bellmedia.ca and followed on Twitter at http://twitter.com/tsnscottcullen.

The 10-year deal the league and players agreed to that ended the 2011 lockout gave either side the right to opt out after six years. With the league projecting financial growth, there has been speculation that players will take that option in three years, especially since a new national TV contract will be in place by then.

Watch the game live on TSN2 starting at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. The Flyers had lost two straight before beating the Penguins twice over the span of two days. Philadelphia hosted the Metropolitan Division leaders on Saturday and notched a 4-0 win behind a 25-save shutout from Steve Mason. The Flyers then headed across Pennsylvania to take a 4-3 decision in Pittsburgh on Sunday, with Mason picking up another win after making 20 saves. Matt Read scored twice for the Flyers on Saturday and Wayne Simmonds pumped home a pair of first-period power-play goals in Sundays triumph. The Flyers chased Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury with three goals in the first 14 minutes on Sunday before holding on for the 4-3 win. "Our team will get confidence from this. Any time you can beat Pittsburgh twice, even twice in a row, its a big boost. Thats still a very good team over there," offered Flyers head coach Craig Berube. Brayden Schenn tallied at even strength on Sunday and Read added a short- handed marker. Flyers captain Claude Giroux contributed a pair of assists in his 400th NHL game. The productive weekend pushed Philadelphia into second place in the Metropolitan Division, but the Pens still hold a 15-point lead atop the division. The Flyers are one point ahead of both Columbus and the New York Rangers in the competitive battle for the divisions three automatic playoff spots. The Flyers are kicking off a four-game homestand on Tuesday and also will host Dallas, St. Louis and Los Angeles during the stay in South Philadelphia. Berubes club is 19-12-1 at Wells Fargo this season and has won six of its last eight games as the host. The Blackhawks are vissiting Philly for the second time since clinching a Stanley Cup title in the City of Brotherly Love on June 9, 2010.dddddddddddd Chicago won Game 6 of the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals at the Wells Fargo Center, as Patrick Kane scored in overtime to deliver the franchises first championship since 1961. The Blackhawks added their second title in four seasons last spring when it beat Boston in six games for the Cup. The Flyers are 2-1-0 against Chicago since that postseason encounter nearly four years ago, but the Blackhawks slammed Philly by a 7-2 score when the teams met in the Windy City on Dec. 11. Former Flyer Patrick Sharp had a goal and two assists to lead the way in the rout. The Blackhawks halted a two-game slide in their last trip to the ice, recording a 4-1 home win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday. Marian Hossa scored a goal and assisted on two others in his return to Chicagos lineup. Hossa missed five consecutive games with an upper-body injury he suffered against Pittsburgh at Soldier Field on March 1. The Blackhawks went 2-3-0 in his absence. "(Hossa) changes the look and complexion of our team game. He made a big difference tonight," said Chicago head coach Joel Quenneville. Ben Smith had a goal and one assist for Chicago. Duncan Keith collected two assists, giving him 300 for his career, and Corey Crawford earned the win with 19 saves. Chicago is currently third in the Central Division and one point behind the Colorado Avalanche, who play Tuesday evening in Montreal. The Blackhawks are 18-9-7 as the visiting team this season. Following tonights tilt in Philly, the club will play its next four games on home ice. Chicago will not have forward Brandon Saad for Tuesdays game, as he did not make the trip to Philadelphia due to an upper-body injury suffered on Sunday. Saad, who has 19 goals and 44 points this season, will miss his first game of the 2013-14 campaign.
