The Sporting News has been releasing their 2013 season awards this week, and the Pittsburgh Pirates have been doing great. They had the top three players in the NL Comeback Player of the Year race, with Francisco Liriano winning the award. Clint Hurdle took home the NL Manager of the Year Award.

Today the awards continue, as Andrew McCutchen was named to the Sporting News NL All-Star team. Not only was McCutchen named to the team, but he was an “overwhelming choice”. McCutchen was one of three players who got that distinction, along with Yadier Molina and Clayton Kershaw. The selections were made by a panel of 14 NL General Managers and Assistant General Managers. The team is below.

C – Yadier Molina

1B – Paul Goldschmidt

2B – Matt Carpenter

3B – Chris Johnson

SS – Troy Tulowitzki

OF – Andrew McCutchen

    Makes sense. McCutchen is far and away the best center fielder in the NL. Carlos Gomez is the only player that could challenge him for that spot, and despite good offfense, Gomez’s value is more tied up in defense, which isn’t something voters in this type of thing usually go for.
