  • Papelbon Named Rookie of the Month

    As if there could be any doubt, Jonathan Papelbon was named "Rookie of the Month" for his 14 2/3 scoreless innings and 10 saves. I haven't been this excited about a closer since my namesake threw 46 consecutive in 1998 (the year I came back to baseball).

        Last time I checked, it was 130 abs or less or 50 IP or less, with tenure also playing into consideration.

          I'm the last one to invoke Wikipedia as a reliable source; however, their "Rookie of the Year" entry 2nds CCN:
          In order to qualify for the award a player must have accumulated, prior to the season under consideration:

          * Fewer than 130 at bats and 50 innings pitched in the major leagues or
          * Fewer than 45 days on the active rosters of major league clubs (excluding time on the disabled list or any time after rosters are expanded on September 1)
          What I don't get is if this means that the entire month of September doesn't count.

            I thought I heard "40 days" somewhere. I must be mistaken.

                  Yes Pap earned it. Right now he is on pace to win rookie of the year. He has been unhittible not giving up a run yet and setting the MLB record for saves in april by a rookie. Hopefully he can keep up this lights out pitching this month as well. Im excited that he is such a good closer but I really want to see what he can do starting every 5 days.
                  go sox.

                    Billy Koch was undone by his own psychological problems.

                      Yeah...not sure what a rookie with a month's worth of major league experience to a guy who had 4 30+ save seasons then fell apart at age 28 have in common.

                        Congrats to Pap!

                        What I'd like to see is what he'll do now that the run has finally been scored off him. It's like when a guy gets a HR hit off him, he composition and everything is watched. Some fall apart, but others are cool like cucumbers. People call it the "closer's mentality" or something, and that's exactly what he is.

                        I wish him the best!
