Let’s get this out of the way: Yes, there are only six weeks left in the 2016 MLB season. Kind of snuck up on you, didn’t it?

That means, among other things, we can get serious about the various awards races.

A lot will be decided in the final month-and-a-half. Hot streaks, cold spells and injuries will inevitably shift the picture. And some races—like the American League Cy Young Award—are impossibly wide open.

That said, based on stats and performance entering play Tuesday, let’s parse the odds for each major piece of hardwaremeaning Comeback Player of the Year, Rookie of the Year and each league’s Cy Young and MVP awards. 

We’re looking at stats, obviously. But we’ll also consider past voting trends, team performance (which matters, fair or not) and a dash of old-fashioned gut feeling.

Clear some room in your trophy case and proceed when ready.
