New, 3 comments

Here are the results (after the jump because the charts don't quite work on the front page):

Rk Player Team 1st 2nd 3rd Pts
1 Tommy Hanson Atlanta Braves 9 9 6 78
2 J.A. Happ Philadelphia Phillies 6 9 7 64
3 Andrew McCutchen Pittsburgh Pirates 8 3 5 54
4 Chris Coghlan Florida Marlins 7 5 4 54
5 Dexter Fowler Colorado Rockies - 3 1 10
6 Randy Wells Chicago Cubs - - 6 6
7 Garrett Jones Pittsburgh Pirates 1 - - 5
8 Casey McGehee Milwaukee Brewers - 1 2 5
9 Seth Smith Colorado Rockies - 1 - 3

 

I voted Hanson, McCutchen, Happ. Long-term, I'm a bigger fan of McCutchen than any of them--actually, I'm not a big long-term believer in Hanson because I think he leaves the ball up too much--but his performance this year really was excellent in every way you'd hope for. Hanson also gets the edge over Happ because of better peripherals. Happ actually had a huge edge over Hanson in VORP (who had a very small edge over McCutchen) but I have to make a judgment call here and vote for the guy who was, in my view, really beating the opposition instead of the guy who pitched well but depended more on his defense.
