AL Rookie of the year?

Postby JOEG » Mon Jul 05, 2004 8:14 pm

Who are they right now?

I would guess Crosby is the favorite
Mauer could sneak into the mix and has a bigger name

Is there even a third option? AM I drawing a blank or is this a lame rookie year?


Guys not elgible I think
Robertson
Ford

Not sure what the exact cut of fis but he's had about 210 plate appearences prior to this year with 61 games played which just seems like to much

I am pretty sure you lose rookie eligibilty after about 140 at bats or so. If V-Mart had more then that before the year started, then he is not technically a rookie in the eyes of MLB.


To chime in on your original post, I think Mauer has a big 2nd half and wins it since there really isn't any other top rookies that I see challenging him.

I'd have to say Crosby has made quite a nice challenge for the top spot. I'm not sure how he's been defensively but with the expectations that were made of him replacing Tejada.. I'd say he's doing a fine job.

And also you mentioned Ford.. he only had 73 AB's last year so I think he is still eligible. But 9HR,.311BA, 10SB, 40RBi. He actually maybe the favorite with Crosby being close behind.

I think for some reason hearing on a broadcast that he wasn;t elgible.... but he would have to be the numbe rone seed right now then

Mauers arm is so scary that NO ONE attempts to run on him, that pretty impressive for a 20 year old! One error only too

I guess you can throw Crosby's name out there, but except for last month his season has been awful. It looked like he was turning it around but he has gotten off to another horrid start to this month. He hasn't really shown anything to me by his numbers or with me watching him play.

So I guess Lew Ford would lead my list right now, cause no one else has the numbers to challenge him. But what happens when Stewart comes back? If he gets no more playing time then it is wide open again.

Is it possible to not give away a Rookie of the year award, because no one deserved it? :-?

Is there anyone even mentionable after Mauer, Ford, or Crosby?

That seems weird! Mauer should be around 310/15/60 at the end of the year with gold glove D and a huge name and might get the cake due to the former fact
