Rookie of the Year Talk Update II

Postby Arlo » Wed Jul 02, 2003 7:14 pm

A lot has happened in the last six weeks in the Rookie of the Year race. Kurt Ainsworth's stock is down, Hideki Matsui's is on the rise, and Dontrelle Willis has burst onto the scene to become one of baseball's most intriguing players. Once again, J.P. Steed has all the latest news covered in his second Rookie of the Year Talk Update. Don't miss it! ;-D

You missed the real NL rookie of the year.....his name is Brandon Webb, he has an ERA below 2, a whip below 1 and he's a hell of a lot better than Dontrelle Willis who is getting all the attention. His average run support during his first 8 games? 1.34 runs.....and this guy is easily the best rookie to come in a long time

Oops - I'm afraid I'm to blame for the lead-off mistake. When Prof. Steed sent us the article, Podsednik had been seeing time in the leadoff spot, and we failed to update this. Thanks for catching that one! ;-D

As to Webb, he's certainly been very impressive, and I agree that he should be receiving more attention. I believe that run support number isn't quite correct, though: the 13 runs of support he received against Cleveland are enough to bring that number higher all by themselves.

Two names from the lowly mets...Jason Phillips and Jose Reyes. There's always Ty Wiggington. Brandon Webb...best in a long time...Please!

I agree with Arlo...

Webb is impressive and I like him as the NL Rookie Of The Year.
For the AL I don't really know...
What about that kid in T-Bay their OutFielder.
What do you think?

rookie of the year - AL

Postby Dell deChant » Sat Aug 30, 2003 1:30 am

I think the Rocco Baldelli is still the best pick for rookie of the year. If you had to pick one rookie to go on an AL all-star team in a must win game, who would it be? Answer is obvious. He brings wins with his bat, fielding, steals and general base-running, and pure speed. The guy from the Yankees is not even close.
