Even though was traded to the Los Angeles Angels at the waiver trade deadline on August 31 for pitching prospect Grayson Long (who spoke to Bless You Boys last week). Since the trade, Upton has even signed a contract extension with his new team. So what are the criteria for the Tiger of the Year voting? We don’t know! Little is written on the recipient selection process, so nobody is really sure whether the award is given...
