In an extra inning game, with many positive and negative signs, there was a particular man who truly deserved the award: D.J. Carasco. However, D.J. will be spared because one other player who out-earned D.J. in the spot for biggest failure. This man was so bad he was sent down immediately following the game.
We say goodbye to Blaine, and happily award him the 10th Wilpon Award. To be perfectly honest, Blaine might not have deserved it most. Terry Collins, along with Carasco made strong arguments for being selected. However, it goes to Blaine because we, here at The Wilpon Award, don’t think he’s ever coming back, and we want to be equal opportunity.
