Each year, three members of each team are selected as nominees for the annual Hank Aaron Award.
Players from the Mets you would expect to be on the list: David Wright, Carlos Beltran, Carlos Delgado, possibly Gary Sheffield and maybe Jose Reyes.
Players actually on the short list this year: David Wright, Luis Castillo and Angel Pagan.
Wright, Castillo and Pagan are the three Mets selected for the Hank Aaron Award, given “awarded annually to the best overall offensive performer in each league, with each club having three nominees. This is the seventh consecutive year that fans have had a voice in selecting the award winners.”
Says a lot about 2009, doesn’t it?
