It’s awards week across MLB, and we now have two sets of major award winners. Shohei Ohtani defeated a pair of Yankees for American League Rookie of the Year, with Ronald Acuna taking the distinction in the NL. Bob Melvin and Brian Snitker won manager of the year in the AL and NL, respectively.
Cy Young Awards will be handed out tonight, and we’ll learn the MVP winners tomorrow. No Yankees involved in either of those, though. In New York sports tonight, the Knicks take on the Thunder in Oklahoma City, while the Nets host the Heat in their first game since seeing budding star Caris LeVert go down with an awful leg injury.
