AL MVP: Josh Hamilton, Texas Rangers
2010 season line: .359 AVG, 32 HR, .411 OBP, 43 extra-base hits in 133 games.
Hamilton put up another amazing year for the Rangers, posting a league-leading .359 average. He played through a lot of injuries, but carried the Rangers when it was important and trumped the Angels for the first time in recent memory.
Close second: Robinson Cano, Yankees
AL Cy Young: David Price, Tampa Bay Rays
2010 season line: 19-6 W-L, 2.72 ERA, 188 strike outs in 31 starts.
Price, the former first overall pick in 2007, lived up to the hype and pitched an amazing season for the Rays. They were back and forth with the Yankees all season, but Price was a stopper and a reliable force in the Rays young rotation.
Close second: C.C. Sabathia, Yankees
AL ROY: Austin Jackson, Detroit Tigers
Jackson, acquired from the Yankees in the Curtis Granderson deal, made it easy for Tigers fans to forget about Granderson in the outfield. Jackson hit an impressive .293 with 4 home runs, 34 doubles, 10 triples, and a .345 on-base percentage.
Close second: Neftali Feliz, Rangers
AL Manager of the Year: Ron Washington, Rangers
It took some time with the Rangers, but Washington has embraced the talented young team the Rangers have assembled and turn them into a winner.
