Offensive Employee of the Year: We know that Telvin Nash was the Team MVP, and even though he played in nine fewer games, I think we need to give it to Marcus Nidiffer. The undrafted free agent put up a higher Avg/OBP/SLG than Nash, with one fewer homer, and 15 fewer RBI, striking out fewer times.

Pitcher of the Year: Garrett Bullock. He threw the most IPs of pitchers who didn't start a game, and his ERA was the lowest by over 2.5 runs/9 than a starter.
