Minnesota Twins: Community Awards

Something new.

Every year, SB Nation has its bloggers fill out ballots for MVP, Cy Young, Rookie of the Year and Manager of the Year awards for the league in which their team plays.  While those awards will be released in a few weeks, I thought it might be fun to do a few community awards based solely on the Twins.

Today we'll start with Bummer of the Year.  Injuries and poor statistical seasons are the primary reasons for being nominated for a Bummer, and only players who finished the year with the Twins are eligible.  This year's candidates are:

Michael Cuddyer:  For his injury-riddled season, just after he signed a three-year extension.
Pat Neshek:  For hitting the disabled list early in the season, an injury that had a cascade effect on the bullpen.
Adam Everett:  For his sore right shoulder and trips to the disabled list.
Carlos Gomez:  For his strikeouts, and seeming desire to leave the batter's box as soon as possible.
Boof Bonser:  For his disappointing season in a year where his contributions were needed.
Matt Guerrier:  For his poor showing down the stretch, when the bullpen heirarchy had broken down and his consistency disappeared.

Not all categories will have this many nominees.  In fact, some of them may only have two or three.
