Mike Trout and Bryce Harper have been named their league’s respective Rookie of the Year. But more importantly, let’s see how my post season awards predictions are holding up.
As I and everyone else expected, Trout was a unanimous choice in the American League, followed by Yoenis Cespedes and Yu Darvish. I also had those two guys second and third (although I didn’t pick an order).
Harper’s selection was not as easy. He received 112 points, just getting by Wade Miley and his 105 points. Todd Frazier finished third. I predicted Harper would win, saying it would “be a close one.” I was right about that, too. I did, however, have Wilin Rosario in my top three instead of Frazier for NL Rookie of the Year.
So overall I did well and am quite the genius.
