NEW YORK—Zach Britton and Mark Trumbo have been named finalists for outstanding pitcher and comeback player in voting for the Players Choice Awards.
Britton, who has converted 47 consecutive saves and has a sparkling ERA of 0.55, will certainly get votes in the Cy Young Award and the Most Valuable Player.
His competition for the outstanding pitcher is Cleveland’s Corey Kluber and Boston’s Rick Porcello.
Trumbo, who leads the major leagues with 46 home run is facing two Texas Rangers, Yu Darvish and Ian Desmond.
The Players Choice Awards, which are voted on by major league players, will be handed out on Nov. 9.
NFL Players Association Executive Director DeMaurice Smith made a visit to Redskins Park today, and the team elected their union representatives.
Kedric Golston will serve another year as the team's liason to the union. Three alternates were elected as well: Kirk Cousins (an alternate last season), Will Compton and, surprisingly, Josh Norman.
Norman was critical of Smith and the union in an ESPN piece in August. "[The NFL] is a dictatorship, and [NFLPA director] DeMaurice [Smith] is in cahoots with those guys," he claimed.
The cornerback's election today marks what would appear to be a turn of events.
"We always love to have veteran leadership as player representatives, and this team is no different with Kirk and Kedric returning," Smith told CSN Mid-Atlantic. "As for Josh, we love players who are both smart and passionate, and he, as well as the other players, fit that bill."
