SHARE Two Cubs not named Jake Arrieta are favored to win awards

Despite his 12-day contract purgatory in the minors to start the season, Kris Bryant was a fait accompli to become the Cubs’ sixth Rookie of the Year. And, all Joe Maddon had to do was stay out of last place to win his third Manager of the Year Award. That’s probably why the two are odds-on-favorites to win their respective awards.

On the other hand, Jake Arrieta, the only 20-game winner in baseball, is the second-favorite to win the NL Cy Young Award, according to current odds from OnlineGambling.lv:
