Doc, Howard, Worley earn MLB.com honors
This past season, the Phillies won their fifth consecutive National League East title, and several members of the team played a big role in their success.

In a vote put together by MLB.com editors, first baseman Ryan Howard was named the club's Player of the Year, while right-hander Roy Halladay was chosen the team's Pitcher of the Year.

Howard led the team in home runs (33) and RBIs (116), while Halladay won 19 games with 2.36 ERA and 220 strikeouts. Rookie right-hander Vance Worley was voted the Breakout Player of the Year after winning 11 games in 23 starts in the No. 5 role in the Philadelphia rotation.

The accolades don't stop there. Last week, third baseman Placido Polanco won his third career Rawlings Gold Glove Award.

Team Awards 2011

Polanco joined Darin Erstad as the only players in big league history to win a Gold Glove at multiple positions. Polanco won Gold Gloves as a second baseman while playing for the Tigers in 2007 and '09.

This past season, Polanco started 115 games at third base for Philadelphia, making eight errors for a .977 fielding percentage.

The awards haven't stopped there. After the season ended, the Phillies' annual franchise awards were handed out by the Philadelphia chapter of the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Center fielder Shane Victorino was the winner of the Mike Schmidt Award (Most Valuable Player), while left-hander Cliff Lee received the Steve Carlton Award (Most Valuable pitcher).

Victorino .279 and led the team in runs scored (95) and triples (16). In his second stint with the Phillies, Lee was 17-8 with a 2.40 ERA.

There is a possibility that more awards could be given out to Phillies in the coming days and weeks. Next Monday, Worley will find out if he will win the National League Rookie of the Year Award.

A week from Wednesday, Charlie Manuel could win his first Manager of the Year Award. This past season was arguably one of Manuel's best. He guided Philadelphia to its fifth consecutive division title despite not having the services of Chase Utley for a good part of the season.

On Nov. 17, Halladay and Lee are in the running for the National League Cy Young Award. Halladay is looking to win his second straight Cy Young Award, his third overall (2003, Toronto). Lee is looking to win his second Cy Young Award, the first coming in 2008 while pitching for the Indians.
