(Sports Network) - The Baseball Writers Association of America will hand out their first two postseason awards on Monday, as the American and National League Rookies of the Year will be announced. It appears to be a two-man race in each league, as Atlanta teammates Craig Kimbrel and Freddie Freeman are the clear cut front runners in the NL, while Kansas City first baseman Eric Hosmer and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim first baseman Mark Trumbo highlight a deeper AL ballot. Kimbrel put forth the best first year ever by a closer, as he set a rookie record with 46 saves and recorded 127 strikeouts in 77 innings. He limited opponents to a .178 batting average and recorded 14.84 strikeouts per nine innings, joining Carlos Marmol (2010), Eric Gagne (03) and Billy Wagner (1998 and 99) as the only pitchers to post at least 14 strikeouts per nine innings and notch at least 30 saves in the same season. However, one thing that could hurt him is the fact that he blew three of his last six save opportunities, including one on the final day of the season that could have put his Braves into the postseason. Should that be a deciding factor then the award will likely fall to Freeman, who was the most consistent hitter for the Braves this season. The 21-year-old batted .282 with 21 homers and a .795 on-base-plus-slugging percentage. Freeman led NL rookies in batting average, hits (161), doubles (32), homers, RBI (76), on-base percentage (.346) and slugging percentage (.44. Either way the award figures to go to a Braves rookie for the first time since Rafael Furcal in 2000. Others who figure to be in the mix include Phillies right-handed pitcher Vance Worley, Braves righty Brandon Beachy and Nationals second baseman Danny Espinosa Over in the American League its almost as sure with Hosmer and Trumbo leading the pack, although a trio of starting pitchers could have a say as well. Hosmer came up in early May and immediately made an impact. He swatted 19 home runs while driving in 78 runs and finishing first among AL rookies in runs (66) and hits (153). He also collected 27 doubles, making him the 27th player in history to hit at least 17 home runs and 24 doubles at the age of 21. Not to mention his .293 average was nearly 40 points better than Trumbos. Trumbo, who was the Sporting News choice for top rookie, burst on the scene after six years in the minors and belted 29 home runs with 87 RBI. He only batted .254, but his home-run total was the highest by an AL rookie since Nomar Garciaparra hit 30 for the Red Sox in 1997. His 149 games played were also most among all AL rookies, If offense isnt your thing there are certainly a few pitchers to choose from, as righties Jeremy Hellickson from Tampa, New Yorks Ivan Nova and Seattles Michael Pineda all figure to get some votes. Hellickson was the ALs top rookie as chosen by Baseball America after going 13-10 with a 2.95 ERA in 29 starts. Nova won 16 games and pitched to a 3.70 ERA for the Yankees despite a stint in the minors and won his final 12 decisions, which included an eight-game winning streak. Pineda, meanwhile, was an All-Star and ended the year with a 3.74 ERA, but seemed to run out of steam in the second half. THE SPORTS NETWORK PICK: NL ROOKIE - CRAIG KIMBREL, ATLANTA BRAVES AL ROOKIE - ERIC HOSMER, KANSAS CITY ROYALS Delano Howell Womens Jersey .

Henrik Zetterberg had two goals and an assist, and Pavel Datsyuk and Niklas Kronwall each had a goal and two assists to lead Detroit in a 5-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night.As Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment spends the coming week interviewing prospective candidates to replace chief executive Tim Leiweke, buzz is building within the companys executive ranks and sports business industry that the CEO of a public Canadian media company may be the best fit for the high-pressure job. John Cassaday, CEO of Toronto based radio and television broadcaster Corus Entertainment, has been approached by MLSE and discussed the position with company officials, a person familiar with the matter confirmed to TSN. Cassaday, who once worked for former MLSE CEO Richard Peddie, is well known and highly regarded in the Toronto media industry. Besides being CEO of Corus, whose assets include YTV, HBO Canada and Treehouse, Cassaday sits on the boards of Sysco Corp. and Manulife Financial Corp. Cassaday is a proven leader, said a person close to the MLSE board. He has handled a publicly traded company in Corus, its board and family ownership issues flawlessly. He is stable. A sure hand on the tiller. And hes mature and knows how to manage divisions and factions within a company. And hes Canadian and probably is looking for a change before he retires. Cassaday is 60 and once worked for Richard Peddie at General Foods, now known as Kraft Foods. Now, Peddies brother Thomas Peddie works for Cassaday at Corus. MLSE plans to bring finalists for the Leiweke job into Toronto this week for interviews. The company would like to decide on his successor within the next week or so, a source told TSN. Neiither Cassaday nor his media relations staff responded to phone messages or emails seeking comment.dddddddddddd While Cassaday is an experienced Toronto broadcast executive, its also worth asking whether his skill set lends itself to MLSE, which is shrinking its broadcast business and turning it over to the companys owners, Bell and Rogers. As previously reported by TSN, other executives approached by MLSE to succeed Leiweke include former Madison Square Garden executive Hank Ratner, NHL executive John Collins and CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon. Neither Collins nor Cohon are seen as favourites for the job. Collins has helped to build the NHLs business through savvy marketing and a host of outdoor hockey games, but also was instrumental in awarding the NHLs Canadian TV rights to Rogers Communications. That might complicate his hiring, since Rogers jointly owns MLSE with its competitor Bell Media, which also sought those rights. Bell is TSNs parent company. Cohon, meantime, has led the CFL through a period of relative peace, negotiating a larger TV contract with TSN in 2013, but has also been the leagues chief executive during a time when the Toronto Argonauts, the countrys largest media market, have struggled to grow interest from fans and sponsors alike. According to Canadian Business magazine, Cassadays compensation during 2013 was about $4.7 million. Before helping to found Corus, Cassaday was president of CTV Television and the Campbell Soup Co.s top executive in Canada and the U.K. cheap nfl jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys ' ' '
