Re: Who are the menís defensive player of the year candidates
No one will change it, but it is a flawed award system. If the top players on the top teams earn them, no one complains, but when for example Smash It auto-wins 8 awards and only 5 guys are hitting .700+, that takes away from other individual performances on the year and these awards are individual awards.
Flood absolutely deserves 1st Team batting .740 on the year but since his team finished lower in the standings he's not even eligible and can only get 2nd team. You won't hear anything from him because he's a good dude, but I bet a little part of him would like that recognition because he flat out earned it.
