The award will be announced tomorrow, 11/15, at 2 pm. There are two players that will get most of the attention ... and then there's everybody else.

So, who would you pick?

Posey, Latos (if he qualifies), Garcia, Heyward

Good year for Rookies.

Posey. Position gets him the nod IMO.

Good year for Rookies.
For what it's worth, Latos just missed the cutoff for the qualifications to still be considered a rookie.

"The current standard (to qualify as a rookie) of (fewer than) 130 at bats, 50 innings pitched or 45 days on the active roster of a Major League club (excluding time in military service or on the disabled list) before September 1 was adopted in 1971." - wikipedia

Latos pitched 50.2 innings in 2009.

Yep. Somehow I had it in my head that the cut-off was 52 innings (no idea why) and was too busy watching football to take the time to look it up.

FWIW, I think Heyward will have the better career and be a star, but for 2010, Garcia as a guy providing 28 solid starts seems more valuable than Heyward. RF has bats. Like Doug said, position gives Posey the nod, but for me it also give Garcia the nod over Heyward.

Nearly 200 more PA's of production and Heyward gets the nod from me.

Heyward for me. Buster Posey's slash line was slightly better, but he had almost 200 less plate appearances. I was also a lot more impressed with Heyward's defense than I was Posey's.

Heyward. If Posey had played all year it would have been his.

FWIW Edit - Heyward wins the WAR battle by over 1 game.

he tailed of a lot toward the end of the year, but Jaime Garcia was a stud for a while.

He definitely deserves consideration, but I still like Heyward and Posey over him.

Two very deserving winners.

Agreed. I was fine with either Heyward or Posey winning. You can't really go wrong there.

Heyward wasn't even listed on one voter's ballot.

According to the Twitter post of Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, Dejan Kovacevic is the only voter for the 2010 NL Rookie of the Year who did not list Jason Heyward on his ballot. Instead, this writer for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette chose to list two Pirates rookies, Neil Walker and Jose Tabata.
