It's kinda funny that Trumbo finished 2nd in the AL when he didn't get any votes at all in the RedsZone ROY poll.

Big HR and RBI totals. Sub .300 OBP. That suggests that writers will vote for him because some of them still don't get the value of OBP. That also suggests that the ORG, who leans pretty stat heavy, wouldn't vote for him.

Doug, I was only pointing out one difference that stood out to me. But, I think I already knew why there was a difference. ;)
