Fielder, Harvey, comeback players of the year.

Prince Fielder and Matt Harvey were named Comeback Players of the Year.

Mark Teixeira and A-Rod were candidates. I would think that the voters, in A-Rod’s instance, would have preferred to vote for someone coming off injury rather than a suspension for steroid usage.

Recent passings:

Norm Siebern, a backup OF for the Yanks in 1956 and regular OF for the Yanks in 1958 and 1959. He was a 3x All-Star for the KC A’s and Baltimore Orioles, and finished 7th in the 1962 MVP voting. He hit .300 and won a Gold Glove for the 1958 WS Champion Yankees.

John Tsitouris, a pitcher for the early-60’s Reds.

Eddie Milner, OF for the 1980s Reds.

Garry Hancock, OF for the early 1980s Red Sox.  (Rookie in 1978).
