And for good reason it appears.
With all this Braun, Pence hoopla I find it hard to believe anyone else is going to win the NL ROY.
Hamilton - 207 AB, .280 AVG, 37 R, 14 HR, 30 RBI, 3 SB
Braun - 155 AB, .342 AVG, 34 R, 10 HR, 31 RBI, 8 SB
Pence - 262 AB, .347 AVG, 37 R, 11 HR, 41 RBI, 7 SB
Pence has the inside track just from playing the most so far. Braun has easily been the best of the three but he's behind pence a full 100 AB's which will be hard to make up. Hamilton is an extreme longshot simply because he's playing on such a miserable team.
Right now Braun is my pick, I think he's the best hitter of the three but he's also on the best team and that carries a lot of weight with the voters usually.
