POSTING TIP FOR THE DAY: When composing a post, think about what you would say if the intended recipient was an individual who was actually sitting just two feet in front of you, in person, rather than just some far away and anonymous audience who only can identify you as text on a PC screen - - and then write your post in that manner. It makes for remarkable and sincere discourse.

Netshrine Cleanup Hitter
Win Shares says:
Players; Ed Delahanty (Washington) 31, George Davis (Chicago) Bill Bradley (Cleveland) and Lave Cross (Philadelphia) 26, Fielder Jones (Chicago) Sammy Strang (Chicago) Topsy Hartsel (Philadelphia) and Jesse Burkett (St. Louis) 25 each.
Pitchers; Cy Young (Boston) 38, Rube Waddell (Philadelphia) 33, Jack Powell (St. Louis) 31, Red Donahue (Philadelphia) 30, Bill Dinneen (Boston) 27.
Still not quite up to the standards of the NL, but they would be by next year.
Top player, with Lajoie missing almost half a season, was Ed Delahanty in a last hurrah. Less than a year later, he would be dead.
Top pitcher comes down to Cy Young and Rube Waddell. Both were terrific. I'll vote for the "original" Cy Young, the wins and innings leader while 2nd in strikeouts, but it's close.
Top rookie to Addie Joss, 17-13 for Cleveland.
Top manager to Connie Mack, leading his A's to the title even without Nap Lajoie.

Best Batter: Delhanty
Nearing the end of a great career. Delhanty could still hit with the best of them.
Best Pitcher: Cy Young
Not as dominate as the year before. Young had some competition from Rube Waddell.
Best Rookie (I am going by baseball-reference's debut listing): Addie Joss
A good start to a HOF career. Joss went 17-13 with a 2.77 ERA with Cleveland.
Best Manager: Connie Mack
Leads the Athletics to the pennant after finishing fourth the year before.
