    After a week full of awards between their World Series win and three Gold Glove Awards, the Red Sox have a few more to hope for. 

    Final nominations for American League Manager of the Year and American League MVP were announced Monday night, with Red Sox manager Alex Cora and Red Sox outfielder Mookie Betts getting the nod. 

    Betts will go up against Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout and Cleveland Indians infielder Jose Ramirez. 

    On the other end, Cora will be up against Tampa Bay Rays manager Kevin Cash and Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin. 

    The team had no finalists when it came to the league’s Cy Young, with Indians pitcher Corey Kluber, Rays pitcher Blake Snell and Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander getting the honors. 

    The winners will be announced next week. The award for Manager of the Year will be announced on Tuesday, Nov. 13 while the award for MVP is scheduled to be announced on Thursday, Nov. 15.
