1973 Reggie Jackson (.293, 32, 117) is selected unanimously as the American League's MVP. The 27 year-old right fielder of the World Champion A's, who captured all of the writers' 24 first-place votes, easily outdistances Oriole right-hander Jim Palmer (22-9, 2.40) and Royals outfielder Amos Otis (.300, 26, 93) the runners-ups for the honor.
2006 Brandon Webb (16-8, 3.10) garners 15 of the possible 32 BBWAA's first-place votes to win the NL Cy Young Award. The Diamondback right-hander, who had the fewest victories of any starter ever to win the prestigious pitching prize, beats out Padres closer Trevor Hoffman and Cardinals starter Chris Carpenter with Reds hurler Aaron Harang, who led the league in victories and strikeouts, not receiving one vote from the writers.
