Internet Baseball Awards

Player of the Year

by Baseball Prospectus

American League

A great stretch drive and better offensive numbers garnered Jason Giambi the IBA Player of the Year award in the American League. Giambi beat out Alex Rodriguez and Carlos Delgado by a comfortable margin.

Pedro Martinez had nearly as many first-place votes as Rodriguez, but was left off nearly 200 ballots, causing him to slip to fourth overall. Frank Thomas rounded out the top five, after which there was a significant dropoff.

The top reliever in the voting was IBA AL Rookie of the year Kazuhiro Sasaki.
