NL Regular Season Awards

NL MVP: Joey Votto, Cincinnati Reds

2010 season line: .324 AVG, 37 HR, 113 RBI, .424 OBP in 150 games.

Votto is very deserving of the NL MVP this season after carrying the Reds offense for nearly the entire season. The Reds beat out the Cardinals, and showed the Cubs and Brewers that the Reds are no laughing matter anymore. 

Close second: Carlos Gonzalez, Rockies

NL Cy Young: Roy Halladay, Philadelphia Phillies

2010 season line: 21-10 W-L, 2.44 ERA, 219 K, 9 CG, 4 SH, one no-hitter.

Halladay is the hands down winner this year, dominating the NL in his first full season in the league. He changed the dynamic of the Phillies rotation (for the better), and has put the Phillies in an even better position to win the NL Championship.  

Close second: Tim Hudson, Braves

NL ROY: Buster Posey, San Francisco Giants

2010 season line: .305 AVG, 18 HR, 67 RBI, .357 OBP in 108 games this season.

Posey had a great year with the Giants after being summoned from the minors. He helped guide the teams pitching staff, featuring All-Stars Tim Lincecum and Matt Cain, and was a force with his bat. The prized prospect is living up to the hype and has a chance to make a difference in the playoffs in the next few weeks.

Close second: Starlin Castro, Cubs 

NL Coach of the Year: Bobby Cox, Atlanta Braves

What a way to go out after missing out on the playoffs for the past four seasons. Cox and the Braves owned the 90s, and to see his final season end with a division title is a very fitting end to an amazing career.
