In advance of the BBWAA end-of-season crapfest, SB Nation baseball held its own postseason awards, which we hope will set the bar pretty high in terms of somewhat arbitrary awards voting. There's a pretty good mix of folks among our 33 baseball sites, with varying degrees of statistical inclination. As with the BBWAA awards, the voting for our awards took place after the season ended but before the playoffs began, so performances in the postseason had no bearing on the results.
Today we have the Rookie of the Year awards. My ballot:
- Geovany Soto, C - CHC
- Joey Votto, 1B - CIN
- Jair Jurrjens, SP - ATL
Here are the full results. The rest of the awards will be posted throughout the remainder of the week, culminating with the MVP awards on Thursday.
