  • AL Rookie of the Year (Minus Trout)

    OK, so Mike Trout is a runaway for the AL ROtY award, but I had a question: Who would you pick if he was out of the equation?

    There's no such thing as an ultimate stat.

    Off the top of my head (and I may miss somebody), I'd go Trout, Darvish, Cespedas.

      I'd pick Yoenis Cespedes. It's not an easy choice with Will Middlebrooks having just as good a season in Boston. Darvish is third to me because he's walked way too many batters and suffered for it. Wei-Yin Chen in Baltimore is having a very similar season to Darvish, only with less strikeouts.


      Not-Trout AL Rookies - Cespedes, Middlebrooks, Darvish, Chen.

        For me its Cespedes.

        The way Mike Trout has played this season its hard to remember that hes just a rookie.

          I would say Yoenis Cepedes also. Yu Darvish would be my next choice.

                Who would win if could combine this with 1987? I'd give it to McGwire.
