Mike Trout, Bryce Harper Win Rookie of the Year
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.
