Madison Bumgarner, Sportsman of the Year

Sports Illustrated has made the choice already. He's the first Giant ever to win the honor.

Per Henry Schulman's story in the SF chronicle --

Managing editor Chris Stone said those in the mix included Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw, golfer Rory McIlroy and Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich.
Then, October happened, specifically Game 7 of the World Series, and Stone said there was “almost a unanimous consensus” that Bumgarner was their Sportsman of the Year.
“This one was different because it was rather sudden,” Stone said. However, he added, “The decisiveness with which we reached this decision was as decisive as I can remember the selection being, and I’ve been here 22 years and been involved in the process in some form or another in the last 10.”
