Dominican Winter League All Stars 2009

The Dominican Winter Baseball League released their all stars, as well as MVPs, for the 2009 season. To bet on their teams then go to Partybets.

First off, here is a list of the players of the week throughout the season:

Dec. 7-14: Willy Mo Pena
November 30-December 6: Wilson Betemit
November 23-29: Juan Francisco
November 16-22: Juan Francisco
November 8-15: Kevin Barker
November 1-7: Timoniel Perez
October 24-31: Alexander Valdez
October 17-24: Conor Jackson

Not a surprise that a lot of these guys ended up on the all star team. Here are the all stars:
Relief Pitcher Julio Manon
Pitcher of Year Jose Capellan
Manager of Year Ken Oberkfell
And, as the Dominican Baseball Guy predicted, Juan Francisco won the MVP. He led the league in home runs and RBIs.

The league also announced the gold gloves:

Interesting that these lists are almost identical. Kevin Barker and Juan Francisco are certainly not know for their defense, but apparently the Dominican sports writers thought they were also the best fielders.

Lots of MLB guys on the list, and the Dominican Baseball Guy surely thinks this is a good barometer for future MLBers. Expect to see some of these guys in the big league next year.
