On Monday, Buster Posey was named the NL Rookie of the Year.â†µ
Such a result was expected. He lead his team to a World Series victory, and he put up good numbers. Thus, he gets the ROY trophy.â†µ
I'm okay with him winning the award, however, I'm not okay with Chris Johnson getting overlooked yet again. Johnson was outvoted by Posey, Hayward, and Jaime Garcia--all understandable.â†µ
But someone riddle me this--how does Johnson not get a single vote? Jose Tabata, Jonny Venters, Starlin Castro, Neil Walker, Ike Davis and Gaby Sanchez all received votes. And Johnson had a better year than most--if not all--of the palyers listed above.â†µ
On a separate note, Brad Mills received some much needed love in the NL Coach of the Year voting. Bud Black took home the prize, but Mills took home 1 first place and 3 third place votes. Maybe that Mills hire wasn't so bad after all.
