Stanton and Reyes are "wow" players

       Mike Stanton and Jose Reyes are two of the six nominees for this year's "Wow Factor of the Year" award, one of 19 to be given out Friday at the annual Greatness in Baseball Yearly Awards. The GIBBY's, for short, honor the best players and must-see moments from the previous season. Voters for the awards included media, front-office execs, former players and fans.

        The other nominees for the "Wow" award, which recognizes "the game's most exciting stars," are Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro, Phillies outfielder Shane Victorino and Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano.Mantis

         Not many Marlins to be found on this year's ballot. Other than Stanton and Reyes, who did his wowing with the Mets last season, the only other Marlins-related moment up for an award is the praying mantis dugout incident in D.C., which is a nominee for "Oddity of the Year."

         Winners will be announced on the MLB Network and MLB.com at 9 p.m. on Friday.

         Gotta figure Stanton has a shot at the "Wow" award, right?

PRAYING MANTIS WAS A CLASSIC. WHEN LOMO WAIVED AT THE MANTIS AND IT JUMPED ONTO HIS SHOULDER AND SENT HIM REELING...PRICELESS

MIAMI MARLINS REPRESENT!

That mantis moment just has to win. It was very odd and just too funny. The MLB Fan Cave bit that LoMo did with a mantis later was hilarious too.

Why naming Reyes as a Marlin when he did his "wowing" in favor of the enemy?
Javier Vazquez should have beeb named for his second half performance. IMPRESSIVE!!!!!
