CarGo First FSWA Fantasy Baseball Player of the Year

Football is the undisputed king of the fantasy industry, and the Fantasy Sports Writers Association has ended the past three years by deciding the top fantasy option in that sport. In 2010, baseball finally got its due, with Colorado outfielder Carlos Gonzalez leading the way.

Gonzalez won easily with 87 percent of the possible score, topping Josh Hamilton (who missed 29 games with multiple injuries) and Joey Votto (who engendered the largest All-Star snub uproar of the summer).

Gonzalez won the National League batting crown with a .336 average, and his 34 homers and 117 RBIs also were good enough to place him among the top four in the NL. The Rockies star also added 26 steals, just to make sure he didn’t miss a Rotisserie category.

Joining Gonzalez in the winner’s circle were …

  • Giants catcher Buster Posey — fantasy rookie of the year
  • Phillies starter and Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay — pitcher of the year
  • Blue Jays third baseman Jose Bautista — best value pick.

The ballot was put together by the FSWA board of directors, with the entire membership eligible to vote. Voting involved ranking a top three in each category.
