AL East MVPs & Cy Youngs

The Phillies offseason has officially started, because they suck and aren't in the playoffs.  They were eliminated in March.  Anyway...to help pass the time, I'll be focusing mainly on the Phillies but also delving into all things baseball related.  So, without further ado, I bring to you the MVPs and Cy Youngs of the American League East.

Baltimore Orioles:
MVP - Adam Jones .281/.780, 88 R, 30 DBL, 29 HR, 96 RBI, 7 SB, 4.6 WAR.

CY - Zach Britton 3 W, 71 G, 76.1 IP, 62 K, 37 SV, 7 HLD, 1.65/0.90, 2.4 WAR.

Boston Red Sox:
MVP - David Ortiz .263/.873, 59 R, 27 DBL, 35 HR, 104 RBI, 2.9 WAR.

CY - Koji Uehara 6 W, 64 G, 64.1 IP, 80 K, 26 SV, 2.52/0.92, 1.7 WAR.

New York Yankees:
MVP - Jacoby Ellsbury .271/.747, 71 R, 27 DBL, 5 TRPL, 16 HR, 70 RBI, 39 SB, 3.7 WAR.

CY - Dellin Betances 5 W, 70 G, 90 IP, 135 K, 22 HLD, 1.40/0.78, 3.7 WAR.

Tampa Bay Rays:
MVP - Ben Zobrist .272/.749, 83 R, 34 DBL, 10 HR, 52 RBI, 10 SB, 4.2 WAR.

CY - Alex Cobb 10-9, 27 GS, 166.1 IP, 149 K, 2.87/1.14, 3.9 WAR.

Toronto Blue Jays:
MVP - Jose Bautista .286/.928, 101 R, 27 DBL, 35 HR, 103 RBI, 6 SB, 6.6 WAR.

CY - Mark Buehrle 13-10, 32 GS, 202 IP, 119 K, 3.39/1.36, 3.6 WAR.

*Players had to finish the season with the team (ex- John Lester couldn't be Red Sox Cy Young because he was traded to the A's).

*Pitchers are considered solely for the Cy Young, not MVP.

*On offense the big numbers aren't all that count, as defense and base running are part of the equation too.
