I'm going to be honest—the ballots went out a while ago, and until I got the results back I was relatively sure I voted for Cullerton Rasputin, at least in third place. His name must have slipped my mind.
|1||Tommy Hanson||Atlanta Braves||9||9||6||78|
|2||J.A. Happ||Philadelphia Phillies||6||9||7||64|
|3||Andrew McCutchen||Pittsburgh Pirates||8||3||5||54|
|4||Chris Coghlan||Florida Marlins||7||5||4||54|
|5||Dexter Fowler||Colorado Rockies||-||3||1||10|
|6||Randy Wells||Chicago Cubs||-||-||6||6|
|7||Garrett Jones||Pittsburgh Pirates||1||-||-||5|
|8||Casey McGehee||Milwaukee Brewers||-||1||2||5|
|9||Seth Smith||Colorado Rockies||-||1||-||3|
That said, I'm not sure I can argue with the results; Hanson was brilliant, J.A. Happ might end up the next Pat Listach but nevertheless qualified for the ERA title with a top ten finish, and Andrew McCutchen had twenty more runs created than Rasmus in thirty fewer plate appearances.
As for that lone Garrett Jones vote, he was awesome, but I think this is the first time I've ever seen the Manny Ramirez Postulate used to justify a rookie of the year vote.
At 11: more arbitration discussion!
