I'd go Happ for the NL, and Romero for the AL as of now...I think Rasmus will end up winning it, though.

Voting for Edinson Volquez every year until he wins it.

Tommy Hanson could make it interesting in the NL, but right now I think it would be between Colby Rasmus and J.A. Happ.

With Happ now being 7-0, having a 2.68 era and pitching at least 7 innings in the last 5 starts could Happ win rookie of the year. I could see him finishing at least 11-2. What does everyone else think?

someone close it there is a ROY thread not one day old.

#1 - Theres another thread
#2 - This makes Phillies fans look bad
#3 - Colby Rasmus is having himself quite a rookie season in St Louis and unless Happ continues his streak (which I don't believe he can, though if he does I wouldn't be mad at all) or Rasmus forgets how to play baseball then Rasmus should take it.

to me its happ al the way .... i think colby rasmus avg is too low for him to win it but im glad he is doing ok

Phat Pat 94
07-20-2009, 03:25 PM
rasmus and Andy Bailey

Colby Rasmus Def for the NL

Toss up between Bailey and Romero- but i think Romero will win..

NL: Pablo Sandoval
AL: Dallas Braden

And Dallas Braden isn't a rookie anymore. However this is his 1st full season. I would replace him with Brett Anderson who took a perfect game into the 7th yesterday.

i only really wach the NL, but i would say either Happ or Wells.

07-20-2009, 05:13 PM
Rasmus isn't really that impressive...a .270/.321/.461/.782 line isn't awful, but it's not on the level the pitchers hovering around a 3 ERA with 1.15 WHIP's have (Happ, Wells)

Colby Rasmus. Solid bat with a great glove at a tough position. Happ has regression to the mean all over him, and I find Rasmus' production to be more impressive than Wells'.

Don't say that too loud, I'm hoping JP thinks he'll have a better career than Drabek. :shush:

You can't preemptively penalize a guy. Until he does regress, he still is the most impressive rookie this year.

i say colby for NL

any1 that answers pablo sandoval is as close to an idiot as u can get. before u make stupid comments crowing non-rookies your ROY, do 3 SECONDS OF RESEARCH and see that he isnt a rookie. i cant tell u how many times people said sandoval. its really getting annoying when people say stupid **** when it can easily be prevented...

Same thing happened with Volquez last year I believe everyone kept picking him when he wasn't even eligible oh well.

I can certainly penalize him for having mediocre peripherals. It's been impressive based on ERA and W/L, two metrics which are very unreliable given such a small sample.

Faithdies
07-20-2009, 06:28 PM
I am a fan of Sabermetrics and agree that win/loss is a terrible way to judge a pitcher. But, Happ hasn't been giving up any runs...
I would say that's the best judge of a pitcher, until such time that those peripherals result in those Expected runs.

Seamhead
07-20-2009, 06:29 PM
I respectfully disagree to an extent.

Faithdies
07-20-2009, 06:32 PM

:speechless:


If they don't know, they will soon. Reimold started the season at Triple-A Norfolk, batting .394 with nine home runs in his first 31 games. The rookie hasn't stopped hitting since joining the Orioles, and he leads AL rookies in batting average (.265), home runs (nine), RBIs (26), on-base percentage (.346) and slugging (.449).

God...Pablo would run away with it if he had just had a few at bats less...

I believe someone even voted for him.

Randy Wells. would have more wins he he had some run support. has only had 2 bad starts. could easily have 8 or 9 wins.

He actually got votes last year though, so it isn't just ignorant fans it's mentally slow voters. If it were up to me they should lose their voting rights. MLB also should be sending out a press kit with every player eligible; included in it, at the end of the year also, which I'm sure they don't do.

My vote is either J.A. Happ or Randy Wells

Tommy Hanson...he's 5-0, beat the Yankees and the Red Sox in interleague. Threw 11 ks against the Giants the other night. This guy is gonna be a stud for years to come.

Does anyone notice that Gordon Beckham has .300 BA and is playing a new position he has to be in the convo for the AL. For NL Rasmus is looking real good.

Randy Wells! But he would actually deserve it so might as well give it to a media whore.

^^^You think Randy Wells is more deserving then Happ or Rasmus?

It is Happ as of Now, Rasmus could def take over the lead though
