Tomorrow starts the annual parade of postseason awards. Here is the schedule:

Tuesday
AL Gold Glove Awards

Wednesday
NL Gold Glove Awards
Silver Slugger Awards

Monday, Nov. 15
AL and NL Rookie of the Year

Tuesday, Nov. 16
NL Cy Young

Wednesday, Nov. 17
AL and NL Manager of the Year

Thursday, Nov. 18
AL Cy Young

Monday, Nov. 22
NL Most Valuable Player

Tuesday, Nov. 23
AL Most Valuable Player

A few things to keep in mind:

The Baseball Writers' Association of America votes on the MVP, Cy Young, Manager and Rookie awards. Each award has a panel of two writers per city in each league. So 28 votes in the AL, 30 in the NL.

The mangers and coaches vote on the Gold Gloves.

It would be a surprise if any Red Sox came away with a trophy. Adrian Beltre has a shot at a Gold Glove. Terry Francona will get votes for Manager of the Year and Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz should get Cy Young votes. Beltre will probably get a few MVP votes, too, as those voters pick 10 spots. Cy Young voters select five.
