You can stop whining. Or start. Either way, the 2012 Whiner of the Year Award has been claimed by Brooklyn-based Jason Diamond. Diamond has a piece on the New York Times Opinionator page about how annoying it is when he is recognized by the former customers who don't or won't acknowledge that he is no longer a barista and has even had his writing published in the "Paris Review. " Diamond getting a lot of response from readers, most of it negative, but a few have stepped in to admonish the former customers for undermining Diamond's self-esteem.

SARASOTA, Fla. - When infielder Jonathan Schoop won the Orioles' Minor League Player of the Year award in September 2011, he traveled to Camden Yards to accept the honor. The shy, skinny Curacao native, then 19 years old, couldn't have looked more uncomfortable on the field that day, tentatively shaking hands with staff and players while giving barely audible answers to reporters in a language that he was still learning. There was a common sentiment within the media: This is the kid who beat out top prospect Manny Machado for an award that bears the name of Hall of Famer?

First, let me say I love the fact that people argue about Major League Baseball's postseason awards. You don't get that very often in football or hockey or the NBA. But you get vitriol pretty much every year when the BBWAA season-ending awards are announced. And, to me, that speaks to the passion of the baseball fan. There are a whole bunch of awards that come out after the season ends, and I'm sure it's confusing for many baseball fans. The four that are considered the biggies (given out to winners in both the American League and National League)

Showalter was announced Wednesday night as one of three finalists for the Baseball Writers' Association of America's award after leading the Orioles to a 93-69 record and their first playoff appearance since 1997. His competition is Oakland's Bob Melvin, who led the small-market A's to an American League West crown, and first year skipper Robin Ventura of the Chicago White Sox, who finished second in the AL Central.

The Orioles' improbable run to the postseason wasn't enough to earn Buck Showalter the American League Manager of the Year Award. Up until Tuesday evening's announcement on the MLB Network, the race between Showalter and Oakland A's manager Bob Melvin for the AL's top manager of 2012 seemed too close to call. Both were equally deserving and both led their teams to storybook seasons that captivated baseball. The award was decided by a mere couple of votes, Melvin beat Showalter in a vote of 28 AL market Baseball Writers' Association of America voters.

Slaps on wrist fail Ken Murray Baltimore Sun The AP should have taken the defensive rookie of the year award away from Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing. The organization should not have had a recount, but if I were voting, I would have left him off the ballot entirely. In the short run, Cushing loses salary, some bonus money and image. But in the long run it won't matter much. Two other defensive rookies of the year, Shawne Merriman and Julius Peppers, also failed steroids tests in the NFL, and both pass rushers are being paid very lucratively.

The Orioles earned a huge victory on Saturday afternoon, coming back in the 10th on a two-run, game-winning single by Matt Wieters . It was one of the more exciting games of the season; and arguably the most frustrating victory of the year, too. The Orioles should have pounded the reeling Chicago White Sox and instead were just 2-for-18 with runners in scoring position Saturday (and 7-for-53, a .132 average, in their past six games). Hate to be a downer here, but they have to figure out how to score more when they aren't hitting the longball, and they have to do it soon.

The counselor, despite O'Neal's repeated resistance, pestered him to apply to General Motors Corp.'s management training school. She eventually stuck an application into his locker. "I filled it out so she would leave me alone," he said. O'Neal not only got into the program, but also went on to build a career with the automotive company.
