We are now about a third of the way through the 2010 baseball season, and the time is ripe for a new awards list.

Many players on this list are the usual suspects, but there are also a few surprises.

Many are clear cut (see above), where other categories, such as NL Comeback player of the Year, have at least a quartet of deserving candidates.

Not all these players will actually win the award at the end of the season, as this list is who I believe should win right here, right now.

The fellow shown above is on verge of an historic season. Will he be able to continue his dominance for the final two-thirds?

Time will tell.
