We here are Notinhalloffame.com have plans to create our own set of post-season awards, which we will look back and retroactively present from 1901 on.  That will take a while, but it has never stopped us before!

Our awards are not be league specific.

Now it is time for our 2021 positional awards.

We will be awarding a positional player of the year, but not only that, offer up the runner-up and second runner-up, meaning that we will have First, Second and Third All-MLB players.

Let’s work our way around the diamond and award the best of the best in Baseball!

Please note that with Closers, we are reverting back to the what we did with positional players, in that there are only one First Team, Second Team and Third Team player. 

Closer of the Year (First Team All-MLB): Josh Hader, Milwaukee Brewers.  3.3 bWAR, 2.6 fWAR, 4-2 Record, 34 Saves, 1.23 ERA, 58.2 IP, 102 SO, 4.25 SO/BB, 0.835 WHIP, 1.69 FIP.

Hader was an All-Star for the third time in his career, and he continued his tradition of never having a WHIP over one.  He also posted career-lows in ERA, ERA+ and FIP.

Second Team All-MLB Closer:  Liam Hendriks, Chicago White Sox.  2.8 bWAR, 2.7 fWAR, 8-3 Record, 38 Saves, 2.54 ERA, 71 IP, 113 SO, 16.14 SO/BB, 0.732 WHIP, 2348 FIP.

The 11-year veteran had his best year in 2021, and in his first year as a member of the White Sox, Henriks was a large reason that Chicago made the playoffs.  This was his second All-Star appearance.

Third Team All-MLB Closer:  Emmanuel Clase, Cleveland Indians.  2.8 bWAR, 2.2 fWAR, 4-5 Record, 24 Saves, 1.29 ERA, 69.2 IP, 74 SO, 4.63 SO/BB, 0.962 WHIP, 2.11 FIP.

After missing the entire 2020 Season due to a PED suspension, Clase was back, finishing third in Games Finished and fifth in Saves in the AL.  His advanced metrics were better than his traditional ones, and he earns his spot as our Third Team All-MLB Closer.
