If you've visited MLB.com in the off-season, you've seen the site asking you to vote for plays, players, moments, oddities, and other categories. We aren't quite sure when the voting ends, but I've put a box in the sidebar to remind everyone to keep voting while the awards are still open! Here are the Braves up for awards...
Rookie of the Year -- Jason Heyward

Must C Moment of the Year -- two Braves to vote for here! Brooks Conrad's walk-off grand slam and Heyward's home run in his first ML at-bat in the first game of the year.
Must C Oddity of the Year -- two Braves to vote for here! Melky Cabrera's "misfire" (ha) and the ball disappearing in Brooksy's jersey.
Must C Game -- Braves come back and score 7 runs in the bottom of the 9th to win, thanks to Brooksy's grand slam!
Must C Postseason Moment of the Year -- Rick Ankiel's home run into McCovey Cove in game 2 of the NLDS!
I think I have carpal tunnel from voting for our boys, especially a couple I think might not have the best chance of winning in their categories. Vote vote vote!
