Today we wrap up the 2014 Tony Awards with the announcement of the All-Tony teams for 2014.

These are the first and second teams as I see them in the Cleveland Indians organization based on their performance this past year.  Again, this is not a top prospect listing by position, but a listing based 100% on performance from the 2014 season.

Here is one final recap of all eight Tony Awards handed out this year:

Rookie of the Year:  Bobby Bradley
Defensive Player of the Year:  Tony Wolters
Biggest Disappointment:  Cody Anderson
Biggest Breakthrough:  Erik Gonzalez
Comeback Player of the Year:  Anthony Gallas
Reliever of the Year: Trevor Frank
Pitcher of the Year: Ryan Merritt
Offensive Player of the Year: Bobby Bradley

Here is a listing that shows all of the Tony Awards from 2006-2013: Tony Awards history

Also, for some players who played multiple positions I placed them in a position that put them on the best team. In some cases, due to limitations at some positions such as third base or left field, I placed a player there even though they maybe only played a handful of games there. Also, the DH position was used to get the best available player at that level onto that team. For example, Bradley is the first team first baseman and while Aguilar is also a first baseman he was listed as a DH in order to get onto the first team. Same for someone like Medina who was just nudged out of the second base spots.

The abbreviations for each position should be self-explanatory except maybe for RHS, LHS, RHR, LHR, and CL. These abbreviations are simply for right and left handed starter (RHS, LHS), right and left handed reliever (RHR, LHR), and closer (CL).

Again, these awards are simply for fun to hand out at the end of the year.  Also, the Cleveland Indians in no way whatsoever had any input in these awards.

Maybe all the Indians bloggers should do rankings that have a bunch of prospects above Lindor and send it to various GMs so that maybe they will be convinced to take those other prospects over Lindor. :-) Not in any way claiming these lists were rankings, but just thinking of a way to possibly make some trades without Lindor being involved.

I'm waiting for the "all Tony" team of players who should open the season in 2015 on the 25 man.....considering contract size, dreams, and the ability of the Tribe to make some acquisitions via trade or other means. In other words....not asking you to assume that Swisher is traded or other stupid stuff......

We really have come a long way in regards to the depth in our system. We still lack high ceiling guys, but there are a lot of potential major leaguers listed above. Would definitely like to see one of our pitchers take the next step though and become a consensus MOR type guy.

Roger, as noted in the intro, these teams are not made based on prospect standing, value or age/level comps. They are strictly made based on offensive performance. Hence why Lindor was third team. As for Gonzo, he's a legit spec. A lot of people feel he is arguably on par with Lindor defensively, though Lindor is the more polished bat still. Two different players.....Gonzo is big and lanky and athletic....Lindor is smaller, more compact.

Maquina is 91-93 though tops out at 95 and has a slider with some potential.

3rd team for frankie lindor????????????doesnt defense and intangibles count for anything can gonzo and lindor exist on same team? And if not what is gonzo's market value? what could we expect to receive for gonzo? Is he a royal blue-chip prospect? lindor is 20 and gon zo 23 so that says alot bout their value long term i would suppose. please speculate tony.
