For me, this year's star that I had lobbied for in the past was Edwin Jackson. He was showing signs of being what he was hyped to be last year, and while pitching half his games in Detroit certainly helps, he's been an absolute BEAST this year.
As for the not, I wanted the Reds to make a run for Furcal. Injured a lot and this year not really up to his past standards. He's still a phenomenal talent, but I'm not sure he'll ever have another great season.
