2012 MVB & Rookie Of The Year Nominees

Okay, managers.  A champion has been crowned, the locker rooms have been cleared out, and the champagne bottles have been tossed in the recycle bin.

But just because the 2012 FBL season has ended, it doesn’t mean it’s over!  It’s time for to vote for the FBL MVB and Rookie Of The Year.

First, the nominees.

The following players have been nominated for MVB:  Bishop Coyne (Crusading Croziers); Cardinal Dolan (Almighty Acolytes); and Bishop Gracida (Heresy Hunters).

The following six players are eligible for Rookie Of The Year:  Archbishop Lori (Acolytes); Bishop Sample (Croziers); Bishop O’Connell (Hunters); Bishop Cary (Mitres); Archbishop Sartain (Hierarchs); Bishop Garcia-Siller (Zucchettos).  It just so happened that each team had a “rookie” player – funny how that worked out.  A “rookie” is defined as a player who did not play in the (shortened/incomplete/poorly run) 2011 season.

Now for the voting process.  In each category, managers gets three votes – a first place vote, a second place vote and a third place vote.  First place votes are worth 3 points, 2nd place votes are 2 points each, and 3rd place votes are 1 point each.  I’m doing it this way because it will most likely eliminate the possibility of any ties.

So, for instance – for Rookie Of The Year, I might give O’Connell a 1st place vote (3 pts), Sample a 2nd place vote (2 pts) and Cary the 3rd place vote (1 pt).  When you vote, just type the nominee’s name, followed by “1st”, “2nd” or “3rd”, and I’ll take care of the points.  After everyone’s voted, I’ll tally the votes, and the player with the highest total of votes will be declared Rookie of the Year.  And yes, you can vote for your own player, with any one of your three votes.  Same goes for MVB voting.

To help with your voting process, I’ve provided stats on the rookies, listed below: number of games played (incl. playoff games as noted); points earned; points per game; points breakdown.  Points breakdown shows how the player scored – tweet pts (# of tweets x .25); # of 1-pt scores, 3-pt scores, and 5-pt scores.  I looked through each scoring post everyone published – which is why categorizing your scoring posts by team name is really really helpful.

For MVB, you’re basically choosing who you think was most important to the success of their team.  In other words, would their team have performed as well if they weren’t on the team to begin with.

You can either leave your votes in the combox, or email them to me at lgd0708(at)yahoo(dot)com.  And please vote by Friday, if you’d be so kind!  Thanks!
