DC Player Achievement Awards

Dave Nichols of the Nationals News Network, and a founder of the Washington, DC chapter of the Internet Baseball Writers Association (DC-IBWA), was kind enough to send over the forms to vote for the 2009 player achievement awards. Here’s the link to the page, below is the final results. I’ve also put stars next to the people I voted for, although since we each got to vote for first, second and third place, they may not match up with the order I put them in.
